We won a Webby

The Periodic Table of Videos has won a Webby Award - described as the internet's version of the Oscars?!

According to its website, the Webbys are "the leading international award honoring excellence on the Internet".

The awards are run by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences.

The judges named us this year's winners in the "reality online film/video" category.

The other nominees were:
Dog Park by Discovery Communications (*)
Failure Club by Yahoo!
100 Monkeys by Getty Images Music
Soldier Brother by National Film Board of Canada

The awards are being presented in New York later this month.

As is tradition, our challenge is to come up with a five-word acceptance speech. Any ideas?

We also might try to go to New York for the event if we can find a few other things to do there - so contact me with any ideas for periodicvideos we could make in the Big Apple!?


The Periodic Table of Videos is a collaboration between The University of Nottingham's School of Chemistry and independent video journalist Brady Haran.

(*) Congratulations Dog Park for winning the "people's choice" vote... Periodic Videos was named the judges' winner.
