Mobile app Anne’s Amsterdam nominated for a Webby Award

Nominated for Webby Award

The International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences announced that Anne’s Amsterdam has been nominated in the 17th Annual Webby Awards in the categorie Education & Reference. The Anne Frank House developed this App together with Repudo and LBi Netherlands with the aim of making the city’s wartime history better known. Anne’s Amsterdam is available in Dutch, English and German and suitable for smart phones with iOS, Android and WP7. 

The Anne Frank House is one of Amsterdam’s most visited museums. The building where Anne Frank was in hiding symbolizes the history of both the persecution of the Jews and the Second World War. But how the war actually affected Amsterdam is known to only a few people. The mobile application Anne’s Amsterdam was developed as an innovative way of discovering what happened to Anne Frank and other Amsterdammers. You can collect and view information, photos and videos about events and personal stories at thirty different locations in the city. You will need to visit these locations in person to pick the items up. These are given in more depth on the accompanying website Anne Frank’s Amsterdam.

As a nominee, Anne’s Amsterdam is also eligible to win a Webby People's Voice Award, which is voted online by people across the globe. From now until April 25th, Anne’s Amsterdam fans can cast their votes at pv.webbyawards.com. Winners will be announced April 30th, 2013 and honored at a ceremony in New York City on May 21th.

 

The Webby Awards is the leading international award honoring excellence on the Internet, including websites, interactive advertising & media, online film & video, and mobile & apps. The 17th Annual Webby Awards received 11,000 entries from over 60 countries worldwide.
