London Art Studies wins Webby People's Voice Award for best online Arts, Culture and Events initiative 2020
London Art Studies is an industry-leading enterprise built and run by a small, dedicated team; it’s been called the “Netflix of the art world”.

LONDON.- London Art Studies, the world’s first online arts education subscription website, has been awarded the Webby People’s Voice Award for best in online Arts, Culture or Events initiative 2020. With nearly 13,000 entries from all 50 US states and 70+ countries—and 2.5 million votes cast by 600,000 people in the Webby People’s Voice Awards—the 24th Annual Webby Awards is one of the biggest in their history.

London Art Studies is an industry-leading enterprise built and run by a small, dedicated team; it’s been called the “Netflix of the art world”. Offering compelling short videos in 12 different series, it’s a way to stay culturally curious, even in these strange times living life behind closed doors. Lecturers are selected from leading institutions – from the Tate to the National Gallery, and offer jargon-free and accessible information about artworks, themes and artists.

Hailed as ‘the Internet’s highest honour’ by The New York Times, The Webby Awards, presented by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences (IADAS), is the leading international awards organisation honouring excellence on the Internet. IADAS, which nominates and selects The Webby Award Winners, is comprised of Internet industry experts. The Webby Awards announced their winners today including Tom Hanks, Greta Thunberg, Dolly Parton, Nike, Houseparty, Google Classroom, The New York Times, UNICEF, Malala Yousafzai and NPR – just some of those announced today by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences in their first of its kind internet celebration of ‘The Webbys From Home’, live streaming on the Webbys website on the 19th May hosted by Patton Oswalt.

London Art Studies offers members access to over 200 short, entertaining lectures on art history, design and culture from around the world introduced by world-class specialists. The site is easy to navigate and acts as an accessible introduction to art history, proving how relevant and powerful art can be to our everyday life. Highlight series include:

• Great Works: What makes a great artwork? What makes a painting popular or a sculpture powerful? In this series, LAS lecturers consider the legacy and enduring appeal of some of the world’s best known and most reproduced works, exploring one work in depth in each film.

• Art and the City: London Art Studies invites viewers on a private tour of the artistic treasures hidden within the great cities of Europe. Expect to find not just great art but expert tips on where to eat, drink and shop too.

• The Art Market: discover the secrets behind the 70 billion dollar art market; how sales are made, auction houses function and galleries prosper. Art market reporter Georgina Adam provides expert advice for the newcomer and collector alike.

London Art Studies was launched in 2011 by former CNN producer and co-founder of the Association of Women In The Arts, Kate Gordon, and moved to a digital-only offering in 2018. Her pioneering work in the field of online arts education has created a platform that has come into its own during the lockdown – having seen a 400% increase in its audience in the past two months as people living and working from home look out for more engaging ways to stay motivated and inspired. Offering something tailored to a younger audience, The Academy – a new series aimed at young people from 7 -17 will launch in June 2020.
