The Museo Nacional del Prado’s website wins the prestigious Webby Awards prize

The Museo Nacional del Prado’s new website, which benefits from the sponsorship of Telefónica, has been recognised in The Webby Awards (http://webbyawards.com) of the International Academy of Digital Arts & Sciences as the best website of any cultural institution at an international level. The Museum’s site was awarded the two prizes in this category: the Webby Award, which is the Academy’s prize, and the Webby People’s Voice Award, voted by the general public.

The Webby Awards, now in their 20th edition, have been described by the New York Times as “the internet’s highest honour”. The Prado’s new website was launched on 10 December 2015. It represents the first use of a Knowledge Graph devised by the Prado through the combination of the principles of the semantic web and the body of the Museum’s contents. Developed by Gnoss and designed by CNC Studio, the Museum considered the new website to be one of its priority projects within its Action Plan, with the aim of offering the best possible experience to its digital users.
