The CCCB’s Global Screen project is competing in the exhibition category of the Best of the Web awards , a prize awarded each year by the Museums and the Web congress , an event of international reference in the culture and new technologies sector.
The Best of the Web Awards are aimed at the websites, multimedia projects, mobile applications, interactive contents etc., of cultural institutions that stand out for their creativity, innovation or adaptation to new audiences. An international jury evaluates these and other criteria and selects the best projects of the year in different categories.
The winners of the Best of the Web Awards will be announced during the Museums and the Web congress which this year will take place between 11 and 14 April in San Diego (California). Apart from the jury’s decision, members registered on the congress’s web platform can also vote for their favourite projects between 25 March and 7 April.
Over 85 candidates have been presented for the Best of the Web 2012 including cultural organisations from all around the world. Global Screen is participating in the exhibition category with 12 other projects. The Global Screen candidature is distinguished by the fact that it is an innovative exhibition project, structured through a web platform from which the real-life exhibition is gestated. Global Screen is also an experiment in co-creation with the public that has managed to exhibit over 200 audiovisual pieces contributed by users at a real-life exhibition. The exhibition also has a virtual version in 3D format and a mobile application .
In the year 2010, the CCCB was distinguished at the Best of the Web Awards in the exhibition category with its online project “The City of Horrors”, which received an honourable mention from the jury.
