For the past two decades, the Webby Awards have sifted through the annals of the internet to unearth genuinely good things buried within the bog of crap online. Once discovered, those true gems of the web are given awards, which look like silver springs or duck penises, depending on where your mind's at. We here at VICE have been lucky enough to win a few Webby Awards over the years, and we stare at the shelf full of them here in the office when we're having a particularly shitty day.
The Webby Awards began in 1997, handing out honors to sites like Entropy8 back when you were still marveling over the Windows Maze House screensaver. This year, the Webby Awards will be celebrating their 20th anniversary, and in honor of their big 2-0 we've decided to put together playlists of some of VICE's classic Webby-winning docs.
Some of the Webby favorites include our documentary about the Mexican-Mormon War, the Motherboard documentary 3-D Printed Guns, and our series The Real, among others.
Give them all a watch in the playlist above. Also, keep an eye out for The Internet Cannot Be Stopped—the Webby Awards' massive project featuring collaborations with VICE, Pitchfork, Google, and other Webby winners.
