Webby Awards 2012 Official Honouree

Thought Den are a Webby Award Honouree!

The Webby Awards are a leading international award honouring excellence on the Internet. With over 10,000 entrants from all 50 states of the US and 60 other countries besides, the 2012 awards has had a record number of attendance for categories in Websites, Interactive Advertising & Media, Online Film & Video and Mobile & Apps.

The top 15% of entrants are recognised as Honourees and ARTIST ROOMS: The Game, which we created for Tate and the National Galleries of Scotland, has been selected as one of these.

ARTIST ROOMS: The Game

Our direction from the outset was to combine the learning objectives of Young Tate with some top notch playability. After 6 months, 200 artworks and 60 hours of 3D modelling the game was born; a series of wickedfun™ minigames mimicking the challenges of a gallery curator. Players also get the chance to create their own 3D gallery with 5 of their favourite artworks at the end. Play it now.

The Marketing game; sell to the public!

We are chuffed; past winners include big boys like Twitter, Google, eBay, Yahoo!, iTunes, Skype, FedEx, BBC News, CNN, The Guardian, The New York Times, Aol, Tumblr, Wikipedia, ESPN, Funny or Die, Comedy Central, PBS, The Huffington Post, the Sundance Channel, and The Onion.

Sites and apps are selected for recognition based on excellence in the following criteria (but not limited to): content, structure and navigation, visual design, functionality, interactivity and overall experience.
