No surprise to see National Geographic‘s image and story rich site winning the Best Use of Photography; or that TED won in the Education category; or that the Adobe Museum of Digital Media, with artist Tony Oursler’s insanely visual exploration of Flash; or that YouTube Play developed with the Guggenheim in collaboration with HP and Intel was a People’s Voice winner. The latter especially is a great example of how big corporate players are doing something relevant and useful with their money. Likewise Nowness, funded by LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, while very much a luxury site, packages up some very rich and informative visual content. Below we pick some visual highlights.
