A Day in Pompeii is a Webby Award Nominee and up for People’s Voice

2:11 PM Apr 10, 2013

Carmichael Lynch has perhaps the oldest Webby Nominee in this year's running, Pliny the Elder. Resurrected for our dayinpompeii.com website, Pliny provided a first-hand account of the destruction of Pompeii in 79 A.D. on the anniversary of the eruption. Through his live Twitter updates and an interactive map, people were able to follow his courageous journey and visit the same locations he did nearly 2,000 years ago.

Our social media campaign and website for the Denver Museum of Nature & Science’s exhibition was selected out of 11,000 entries submitted from more than 65 countries globally. We also received Webby Honorees for our agency’s philanthropic holiday site, Offset Your Naughty, and our Carmichael Collective film, A Roach Remembered, that pays tribute to fallen bugs that lived their lives to the fullest.

Voting is now open for The Webby People’s Voice Awards, please vote for our website under Cultural Institutions: A Day in Pompeii. Voting will close on April 25, 2013. The winners will be announced on April 30, 2013.
