Wonderful news – MV's Access All Areas Podcast Adventures just picked up the award for Best Audio/Visual/Podcast category in the MW2011 Best of the Web awards!

Dr Andi Horvath created this podcast series in 2008. Since then, she's taken listeners through parts of the museum most people don't get to see, including research laboratories, exhibition openings, collection stores and more. The audio format is perfect for interviews, poems, noisy collection objects, noiser wildlife, and even the odd scandal from the depths of the museum's past.

Big congratulations also to ACMI for winning not only the Education category, but the highly-coveted overall Best of the Web prize, for their excellent video studio site, ACMI Generator.

The Best of the Web awards are presented in conjunction with the annual Museums and the Web conference, which this year ran from 6-9 April in Philadelphia, USA. Judged by a panel of museum professionals, these prestigious awards attract international nominees of a very high standard.

We were delighted to win an AVIA award for the Panoramic Navigators in Wild: amazing animals in a changing world. If you'd like to know more you can now head to Museum Times for a podcast interview with Tim Rolfe, Head of MV Studios.

The exhibition design team came up with the Panoramic Navigators as an ingenious alternative to traditional labels for the 770+ specimens on display. With the mounts all the way up the wall, labels would have been impossible to read. Sometimes necessity truly is the mother of invention!
