The Webby Awards, the Internet's top honors for websites, video, advertising, media & PR, apps, mobile, and voice, social, podcasts, and games, has recognized a number of international arts initiatives. Established in 1996, this year’s Webby Awards received nearly 13,000 entries from all 50 U.S. states and more than 70 countries worldwide.

The National Museum of Women in the Arts (NMWA) won the Webby People’s Voice Award for Best Social Media Account in the Art and Culture category in the 24th Annual Webby Awards.

London Art Studies was awarded the Webby People’s Voice Award for best in online Arts, Culture or Events initiative 2020.

London Art Studies, the world’s first online arts education subscription website, was awarded the Webby People’s Voice Award for best in online Arts, Culture or Events initiative 2020.

Arts and culture website winners also included Harvard Film Archive, Rock & Roll Hall of Fame: RockHall.com and What was Leonardo da Vinci doing at your age? from CNN Worldwide.NMWA won for its overall presence on Instagram.

With its account @WomenInTheArts, the museum addresses the gender imbalance in the presentation of art by bringing to light important women artists of the past while promoting great women artists working today.

NMWA also leads the award-winning #5WomenArtists campaign, which challenges cultural organizations and individuals with the prompt, “Can you name five women artists?” This has evolved into a global year-round awareness campaign about the gender disparity in the arts that has reached millions of people. NMWA’s Instagram account is managed by Director of Digital Engagement Mara Kurlandsky and Digital Content Coordinator Adrienne Poon.

London Art Studies is an industry-leading enterprise built and run by a small, dedicated team; it’s been called the “Netflix of the art world”. Offering compelling short videos in 12 different series, it’s a way to stay culturally curious, even in these strange times living life behind closed doors. Lecturers are selected from leading institutions – from the Tate to the National Gallery, and offer jargon-free and accessible information about artworks, themes and artists.

London Art Studies was launched in 2011 by former CNN producer and co-founder of the Association of Women In The Arts, Kate Gordon, and moved to a digital-only offering in 2018. Her pioneering work in the field of online arts education has created a platform that has come into its own during the lockdown – having seen a 400% increase in its audience in the past two months as people living and working from home look out for more engaging ways to stay motivated and inspired. Offering something tailored to a younger audience, The Academy – a new series aimed at young people from 7 -17 will launch in June 2020.
