The Sony Pictures online museum won multiple awards in three prestigious website competitions in 2010. The museum was selected as an Official Honoree for the Movie and Film category in the 14th Annual Webby Awards, the leading international award honoring excellence on the Internet presented by The International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences.
As a result of the exceptional quality of submissions this year, the Academy recognized outstanding entries as Official Honorees alongside the Nominees and Winners. The Official Honoree distinction was awarded only to the top 15% of all work entered that exhibited remarkable achievement. With nearly 10,000 entries received from all 50 states and over 60 countries, SPE considered this an outstanding accomplishment for the museum.
The SPE museum garnered further attention by winning Gold and Silver awards in two visual arts competitions presented by the International Academy of Visual Arts, a group of leading professionals in various visual arts mediums. In the categories of Education and Movie/Film, the museum was awarded the two Gold Davey Awards. The museum was also honored in the W3 Awards with a Silver Award for Cultural Institutions.
The museum underwent a significant upgrade of its backend support, design and content. SPE refined the design further to keep the look and feel of the site current with the constantly evolving landscape of the Internet.
