Waterlife is an award-winning documentary by Kevin McMahon about the pollutants threatening the health of the Great Lakes. In 2009 the National Film Board of Canada approached web development and design company Jam3 Media to bring that story to life online. Based in Toronto, Canada, Jam3 is a collaborative interactive studio started by partners Mark McQuillan, Pablo Vio and Adrian Belina. The Waterlife site can be viewed at http://interactive.nfb.ca/waterlife/.
“As the official sponsor of the 2010 Activism Award, Convio is proud to recognize Jam3 and the National Film Board of Canada for Waterlife, as an example of how organizations are embracing technology to move people,” said Sara Spivey, chief marketing officer of Convio. “We congratulate them for this as this year’s winner look forward to following their successes in the years to come.”
The SXSW Web Awards is a competition that recognizes the best new Web sites and celebrates those who are building tomorrow’s online trends. As a result of the growing presence nonprofit organizations are having in the interactive world, SXSW created the Activism Web Award category to recognize green and nonprofit websites that are striving to make the world a better place.
