VICE News is dedicated to providing an unvarnished look at some of the most important events of our time. So we're thrilled to be nominated for two Webby Awards, which are the internet equivalent of the Oscars. And we owe that success to our viewers and readers.

VICE News launched in March 2014. Since then, we've been working to dig deep into the world's most important stories, and to go behind the headlines where no one else does.
Our writers, correspondents, editors, and hosts have brought reportage from the front lines of the conflict in eastern Ukraine, the heart of the Islamic State, within the fight against Ebola in West Africa, from the streets of Ferguson, and beyond.
