Jay Z, Beyoncé and Pharrell are among the 18th annual Webby Awards winners announced Monday (April 28).

Skateboard P earned a People's Voice Award for his innovative 24-hour music video for "Happy."

The Carters won separate categories, with Jay earning the Best Music App section for Magna Carta Holy Grail and Bey snagging a People's Voice Award for her fan site, Beyonce.com.

Other recording artists on the winner's list include De La Soul and Justin Bieber, but only one of the two nabbed a music-related trophy. De La was named Webby Artists of the Year for offering up their entire catalog online for free back in February, and Bieber snatched up a default award for his guest appearance on the Funny or Die web series Between Two Ferns with comedian Zach Galifianakas.

Over on the tech side, Vine, Pandora, Kickstarter and Vimeo landed Webbys, along with digital trailblazers like Tumblr founder David Karp.
