EurasiaNet Garners Nomination for an “Oscar of the Internet”

EurasiaNet’s special feature called “The Big Draw: Selling the Soviet Past” is one of five contenders in the Webby People’s Voice “weird” category.

Journalist Andrew North’s dedication to “slow story-telling” has helped EurasiaNet.org garner a nomination for a Webby Award, one of the most prestigious honors in digital media.
 
EurasiaNet’s Webby entrant is a special feature called “The Big Draw: Selling the Soviet Past.”
 
The feature revolves around an interactive panoramic drawing by North of the Eliava Market in Tbilisi, Georgia. The sights and sounds of the market, along with the stories of some of the vendors who work there, provide a fresh perspective on the post-Soviet experience 25 years after the collapse of communism.
 
“It’s a story about Georgia’s turbulent transition, navigating competing pressures from the Soviet past as the country as a whole looks West,” North says.
