The Webby Awards are the most established internet awards, annually presented by the The International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences. In 2016, RT won by a landslide in the Webby’s People’s Voice category.

In March, #1917LIVE scored two wins (including Best in Education), two golds and a silver in the Shorty Awards. Best-selling author Paulo Coelho tweeted as Mata Hari, the exotic dancer convicted of being a German spy. This collaboration won the Best in Twitter Partnership award, as well as the Audience Honor at the 10th Shorty Awards.
