Best Offline Experience

Creating offline experiences for your audience can make your online relationships stronger by giving them deeper roots that exist beyond a screen. For this award we’re looking for a standout experience, whether part of a larger event such as a festival or hosted in-house, such as opening your studio or office to the public.
