Website named as honoree in Webby awards 2014

9 April 2014 by Lynn

Webby award nominee badgeWe are delighted that our website has been chosen as honoree by this year’s Webby awards, in their cultural institutions’ website category.  With over 12,000 entries to the Webbys, this is no mean feat!

You can see the Cultural Institution website nominees and honorees at: http://pv.webbyawards.com/2014/web/general-website/cultural-institutions/honorees  Read more…
