Dept wins Webbies for Oxxio and Mondrian


Digital Agency Dept has won two Webbies at the 22nd edition of The Webby Awards, the most prestigious international award in the digital world honoring excellence on the internet. Yearly millions of international votes are cast by the public to make sure their favourites will receive their well deserved Webby award(s).

Dept won a People’s Voice Award in the category ‘Art’. A category in which amongst other nominees, the world famous Museum of Modern Art (MoMa) in New York was nominated. Dept won a People’s Voice Award for their work for the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag. A cross-medium campaign developed to celebrate the 100 year anniversary of the famous Dutch artist Mondrian and De Stijl.

Moreover, the app that Dept developed for energy supplier Oxxio also received a People’s Choice award in the category ‘Messaging & Bots’. The app gives insight into energy consumption in a more personal and more relevant manner via a smart chatbot.

13,000 cases from over 70 countries were registered for the Webby awards. The public also voted more than 3 million times for the People’s Voice Awards. The presentation of the award is planned to take place on May 14th in New York.
