Mother-of-two Kim, 35, was honoured at the 20th annual ceremony in New York City, celebrating the best of the internet over the last twelve months.

She was given the inaugural special achievement Break The Internet Award, which honours "a person with an undeniable talent and natural ability to use the Internet to create buzz, engage with fans and communities, and get the world to pay attention."

Kim was given the prize for her "unparalleled success online" which has included *that* nude Paper Magazine photoshoot, and the much-emulated naked selfie that drew criticism from the likes of Bette Midler and Chloe-Grace Moretz. She also launched her Kimoji keyboard and a pay-for app and website.

In keeping with Webby tradition, all acceptance speeches have to be five words and no more.

Kim's speech? "Naked selfies 'til I die."




Kim's husband Kanye West, 38, was also honoured, picking up the Webby Artist of the Year prize. Surprisingly, the usual vocal rapper managed to stick to the five-word speech limit. Appearing via video link, he said: "I can't stand short speeches."
