The authority on the internet - The Webby Awards 2019
Apr 2 2019
It’s that time of year again, and we’ve been eagerly awaiting the release of this year’s Webby Awards nominees. 2019 marks 23 years since the first gongs were handed out and they’re still as coveted as ever, with everyone in the digital world battling it out for one of the accolades.
Once the shortlist has been announced two awards are selected from each category, The Webby Award (this one is chosen by their own judging body) and a Webby People’s Voice Award (that’s where we all get to have our say). With no further ado, let’s find out what the Webby gods hold in their favour.
Two category features for us, what a pleasure! This year, our work on BBC Ideas (‘short films for curious minds’) is one of the nominees for Public Service and Activism. You can check out the interface here and find out how we were involved in this transformational project, but remember to cast your vote before Thursday 18th April to give BBC Ideas the recognition it deserves.
We’ve also been awarded the title of honoree for our digital delivery work on the BFI Filmography, under the Best Data Visualisation title. The Filmography was a data digitisation project that allowed us to tell data stories, that have been hidden in the British film industry for decades, in a compelling and insightful way.
With thousands of entries from all over the world, we’re proud to have been recognised by the Webby Award for our contributions to digital design and the internet. It’s also an honour to be featured alongside so many other amazing projects and concepts, so make sure you take a look at all the nominees (and the outstanding work they’ve done) and have your say before voting closes.
23 years on, the awards are more relevant than ever in our internet age. The standard of work that’s entered just keeps getting better every year and it’s great to see digital alive and buzzing.
