Double Webby Honoree

Double Webby Honoree

The technical and visual tour de force that is the Breakthrough online experience continues to impress, recently being named a 2016 Webby Awards Honoree in two different categories: Technical Achievement and Best User Interface.

Inspired by virtual and augmented reality environments, the Breakthrough online experience crafted for National Geographic Channel embodies the series philosophy by employing an interface that is both wondrous and forward-thinking; it immerses visitors in a stream of floating data and surrounds them with glimpses of sheer brilliance and the possibilities of a brighter future.

Established in 1996 during the Web’s infancy, The Webbys are presented by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences (IADAS) — a 1,000+ member judging body. The Academy is comprised of Executive Members, leading Web experts, business figures, luminaries, visionaries and creative celebrities, and Associate Members who are former Webby Winners, Nominees and other Internet professionals. It has been hailed as “the Internet’s highest honor” by the New York Times.
