Syria Untold, the web aggregator on Syria`s creative resistance, has just been awarded by the prestigious Ars Electronica festival with the honorary mention in the digital communities category.
This is a very important award in the domain of digital arts and creativity, and it`s an acknowledgment of the hard work that the Syria Untold team has been doing since the beginning of our journey in 2012.
I`m extremely happy and proud to be one of the co-founder of this project which is run on a daily basis by a team of talented and brave Syrians who work very hard to collect stories of creative resistance inside the country.
Above all, I am humbled by those Syrians who are still defiant and continue working on creative resistance against all odds. This award symbolically goes to them.
Syria Untold focuses on this very aspect of the Syrian uprising which is often forgotten by mainstream media.
