The Webbys have landed
Arguably the most important web awards around; definitely the most numerous. Every year, the Webby Awards pack in something for everyone. We’ll leave Milley Cyrus and the likes to the mainstream media, while we focus on the entries related to humanitarian and social work in this 2020 edition. The crown goes to Unicef for both Webby Winner and People's Voice Winner awards in the Public Service & Activism category for their #VaccinesWork campaign created by agency RPA.
The same two awards but in the Apps, Mobile, and Voice sub-category went to the Global Citizen app – a mix of news, call to action and gaming perfectly packaged into a sleek mobile app.
Cruising through all the awards is a joy. We found jewels like the videos Be a Lady They Said from Girls Girls Girls magazine and Generation lockdown, about school shootings; nominations like Project Period by agency Purpose for the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation supporting their work towards ending global 'period poverty', or the great website Losing Lena, advocating for women to feel welcome in tech.
