Purpose and two of its partners were recognized this week in the 19th Annual Webby Awards. The video, “Scenes from Everytown: 4:08pm,“ created by Purpose in partnership with Everytown, was honored along with #WalktheWalk, created in conjunction with Here Now (a Purpose incubation). Both were selected as Official Honorees, a distinction only given to the top 20% of entries. #WalkTheWalk was recognized under Activism, in the Website category, and “Scenes from Everytown: 4:08 pm” was under Public Service and Activism, in the Online Film and Video category.
The Webby Awards is the leading international award honoring excellence on the internet, noted as “the Internet’s highest honor” by the New York Times. This year there were nearly 13,000 entries from all 50 states, plus 60 countries around the world.
Purpose is proud to have partnered on these projects, and especially proud to be recognized for using the internet to bring even more awareness to gun safety and climate change.
