So VICE just nabbed five Webby Awards this year, which is one more reminder that when it comes to stuff on internet, we are the only media makers that matter. Even though there was never any doubt that we’re head and shoulders above the competition, we want to thank each and every one of you out there who took the time to vote and send us to our rightful position at the top.
You can check out the official announcement of our winnings at the Webby Awards site. But here is a quick rundown:
The VICE Guide to Congo received top honors in the News & Politics category, snatching the Official Webby Award and the People’s Voice Award. And the VICE and Intel collaboration, The Creator’s Project, ruled the Music category, receiving both the Official Webby Award and the People’s Voice Award. TCP also won the Official Webby Award for the Branded Content category. On top of all of that, VICE’s culinary show Munchies and VICE’s music channel Noisey both received two Webby Honoree awards. The Official Awards are selected by a panel of luminaries assembled by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences. While the People’s Voice Awards are chosen by fine folks like you.
In the meantime, take another gander at our superb and now award-winning documentary, The VICE Guide to Congo.
