MAKERS Wins International Award

May 1, 2014

MAKERS, the first-of-its-kind multi-platform initiative from AOL, was honored last night with a FOCAL Award for the "Best Use of Footage on Digital or Non-Television Platforms." FOCAL, in association with the AP Archive, celebrates the best use of footage in a variety of genres and media platforms and recognizes the teams that create the footage, from producers to creative directors.

This international award highlights the premium content on, but further speaks to the archival element inherent in the MAKERS mission to become the largest collection of women's stories ever assembled. We're proud to receive this international recognition and look forward to realizing even greater scale through our expansion to China and Canada.

Congratulations to the team!
