What’s a Watty?

The Watty Awards are Wattpad’s annual global celebration of stories.

The Watty Awards are Wattpad’s annual global celebration of stories. They’re how we show the Wattpad community that all stories matter. They matter to all of us at Wattpad, they are sorely needed in this world, and they deserve to be told. More than an award, the Wattys are a way to recognize the diverse, creative, empowering stories we can’t stop reading. The stories that open our hearts. The ones that change how we think. Because now, more than ever, the world needs your words.
