We didn’t win a Webby Award, but…we did just win a Communicator Award for Killing Season Chicago’s interactive website!
The Communicator Awards is the leading international awards program recognizing big ideas in marketing and communications. Founded two decades ago, The Communicator Awards receives over 6,000 entries from companies and agencies of all sizes, making it one of the largest awards of its kind in the world. The Communicator Awards honors work that transcends innovation and craft – work that made a lasting impact.
Last week, the International Academy of Digital Arts & Sciences gave the Killing Season Chicago website a big thumbs up! The work on the Killing Season Chicago web project by Liqui-Site Designs was nominated as one of the five best in the world in its category, Web: NetArt. Stay tuned to see if we win the category. Fingers are crossed!
Interventions are featured this week on Art Photo Index. Art Photo Index™ (API) is an ever-growing image and information resource focused on art and documentary photography. Artists are selected based on their accomplishments in the field. Check it out!
Strange Fire Collective Presents Agency
Caleb Cole, The Birdcage Veil, 2010
Featuring work by Caleb Cole, Zackary Drucker, Ervin A. Johnson, Laurence Rasti, and Krista Wortendyke
At the heart of every political and social movement is a question about who deserves to have power and control, whether over territory, access, rights, or freedoms. Around the world, we are witnessing struggles connected to race, sexuality, gender, and class. The artists in this exhibition ask questions about who has agency and in what situations, working from their own experiences within these complex social and political forces.
Here is a link to the online exhibition of the work.
