Hailed as “the internet’s highest honor” by The New York Times, the 2016 Webby Awards recognizes as one of five finalists in the General Website: School/University category.

People call our site ‘stunning’ and ‘beautiful.’ Visual impact was one of our goals for the site, and it was clearly accomplished.

mStoner, Inc., a Chicago-based higher education marketing and communications firm, is honored to announce that the University of North Carolina School of the Arts (UNCSA) is nominated for a Webby in the General Website: School/University category.

Two Webbys are presented for each category:
The International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences selects the first winner to receive a Webby.
The second, the People's Voice Award, is chosen by the public.

UNCSA competes with the nation’s best arts conservatories and attracts exceptionally talented students. They needed a web presence that would match UNCSA’s sophistication as a conservatory, while presenting a unified brand for all five of its arts schools and presenting an elegant navigation experience for the visitor. mStoner realized what UNCSA’s five schools of dance, design & production, drama, filmmaking, and music all had in common — a powerful capacity for visual storytelling.

“People call our site ‘stunning’ and ‘beautiful.’ Visual impact was one of our goals for the site, and it was clearly accomplished,” says Claire Machamer, director of digital media at UNCSA. “Social media referrals have skyrocketed because people are sharing the site. They’re proud of it.”

Voting for the People’s Voice Award already started and will continue through April 21.  People's Voice and Webby Award winners will be honored at the 20th Annual Webby Awards in May.

mStoner, Inc. helps clients to tell their authentic stories by clarifying their unique brand value proposition, creating a content strategy to communicate the brand effectively, and implementing compelling and dynamic communications across the web, mobile, social media, print, and other channels.
