WHAT: EarthCam’s favorite annual tradition is back with the announcement of the 25 Most Interesting Webcams of 2017! Spanning 9 countries, the 19th annual list features entertaining live webcams that have been enjoyed by millions of visitors around the world, and some outrageous newcomers that were just discovered this year.

WHY: The Top 25 Webcams take you on an adventure to Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s tallest mountain, the world’s busiest intersection in Japan and the largest cathedral in Italy. Sports fans will marvel watching the incredible effort it’s taking to build the Chase Center arena, future home of NBA’s reigning champions, the Golden State Warriors. Head to Gas Monkey Garage in Dallas, made famous by multiple hit TV shows, and watch live as Richard Rawlings and the team test drive their newest hot rod creation, or just burn rubber in their parking lot. Animal lovers will enjoy a land, air and sea tour of animal cams featuring a king cobra in Pennsylvania, hundreds of hummingbirds in California and piranhas in Georgia.

“Webcams have become the perfect medium to connect people around the world with locations and landmarks that they have always wanted to visit, and sometimes serve as one of the only ways to safely witness extreme weather events,” said Brian Cury, CEO and Founder of EarthCam. “Each year, we are impressed with the incredible webcam content that live camera producers share with the world, and this year is no exception.”

EarthCam’s judging panel chose the Top 25 Webcams list based on image quality, uniqueness and overall achievements in webcam technology. This year’s panel includes Selymar Colón, Managing Editor and Senior Director, News Digital, Univision; Karen Cummings, of the Cochrane Polar Bear Habitat and a 2016 Top 25 winner; Joseph “Joey Cigars” Tuzzino, Owner of Mulberry Street Cigars; Chi Ling Moy, Communications Manager, World Trade Center Construction, Port Authority of New York & New Jersey; and a third grade class from Spring City Elementary School in Tennessee, who is representing the ‘Kid’s Vote’ this year.
