We are delighted to have already received three Webby nominations and one win for Best Art Website of 2015. Part of the team travelled to New York City to present the 5-word speech on May 18th at the Webby offices, and on May 19th to attend the The 19th Annual Webby Awards at Cipriani Wall Street. See some of the behind-the-scenes pictures of our journey below.
