Webby Award Winners!

In June 2010 'The Specials' travelled to New York to attend the 14th Annual Webby Awards where they picked up both the Webby Award and People's Choice Award for Best Reality. The Webby Awards are also known as the 'Oscars of the web' and so winning 2 was a fantastic achievement!
