From 360 cameras and FPV drones to the smartphone cameras we use every day, host Becca Farsace explains how these new technologies are pushing creative innovation and capturing the world’s attention.
Vox Creative’s The Beauty of Blackness, People’s Voice Winner for Best Fashion, Beauty & Lifestyle Video and Best Fashion, Beauty & Lifestyle Branded Content Video
The Beauty of Blackness chronicles the checkered past, present and future of Black Beauty and calls attention to the historical and current dearth of fashion and beauty products made for and by People of Color. Through its 15% pledge, Sephora has shown support to the Black beauty community by dedicating 15% of its shelf space to beauty brands owned and created by people of Color, The Beauty of Blackness was created for any person that has an interest in the fashion industry but specifically targets Black women. For some, it showcases history that they are familiar with while including new details that they have never seen before and for others, this introduces them to a cosmetic brand made specifically for them that has historical weight and includes modern sensibilities for women of color. This film is a love letter to the Black community, and it shows that Black people have been in spaces and places where they weren’t allowed or supposed to be and how they will again enter a space where they aren’t thought of or valued. The film shows that a compelling story told well, even with brand attachment can resonate with an audience and connect us all.
NowThis’ Presidential Forum with Joe Biden, People’s Voice Winner for Best Social Campaign, Events & Livestreams
Held back in October, just days before the 2022 midterm elections, NowThis’ forum featured an hour-long conversation between President Biden and six guests on a range of issues impacting young voters: reproductive rights, criminal justice, the environment, trans & LGBTQ+ rights, student debt, and gun reform.
Congratulations to all of our writers, podcasters, producers and marketers behind these projects that have led us to six wins, seven nominations, and six Webby honors!
