Undesired Nominated for Webby Award

I’m pleased to announce that Walter Astrada’s Undesired, a project I produced for MediaStorm, was nominated for a Webby in the Public Service and Activism category.

Three other projects I produced were named Official Honorees:

Crisis Guide: Pakistan in News & Politics: Individual Episode. Global Governance Monitor: Public Health in Rich Media: Non-Profit/Educational. Take Care in the Documentary: Individual Episode category.

Another MediaStorm production When the Water Ends was also nominated for a Webby award.

Congratulations to all.
