The winners of the 2011 Webby Awards were announced yesterday, and--awesomely!--MTV’s digital abuse campaign A THIN LINE is taking its place alongside other culture and tech luminaries like Foursquare, Skype, Pandora and the Old Spice guy.
The campaign’s website, www.athinline.org, was nominated in the youth website category, alongside other outstanding youth-friendly sites like People’s Voice winner National Geographic Kids, Mobile Movement, PBS’s The Electric Company and Youth Venture (We were psyched just to be in the same category as them!).
Yesterday morning, a panel of judges chose A THIN LINE as the Webby Award winner for the category. Other winning videos and websites include the Arcade Fire’s gamechanging HTML5-based interactive music video The Wilderness Downtown, the Bed Intruder Song and Justin Bieber’s hilarious takeover of Funny or Die.
Though Webbys acceptance speeches are limited to only five words, we’d like to take a few extra here to thank the people who matter most--you. Without our fantastic audience sharing their stories, supporting one another and telling the world that they’ve taken a stand against digital abuse, we never would have gotten to this point. Though we’re proud of what we’ve done, we’re even prouder of what you’ve done, and what you continue to do.
