Webby Awards 2021, Honouree: NFB’s First Photo Here project.

Incredibly proud to share that First Photo Here, our collaboration with the National Film Board and Joella Cabalu, has been selected as an honouree at this year’s The Webby Awards in the Social – Social Content Series & Campaigns Diversity & Inclusion category. 

The Webby Awards are known as “the internet’s highest honor” and it is a tremendous honour to be recognized alongside important work from HBO Max, Facebook, Instagram, Sephora, and more, after such a historic year. 

The launch film for #FirstPhotoHere was the first project we shot and produced during lockdown. So proud of how our team pivoted our original concepts, came together, and created such a beautiful piece to share the important stories behind the first images folks took when they relocated here.
