Tiny Awards is a small prize awarded by an equally-small selection committee of online makers to the website which we feel best embodies the idea of a small, playful and heartfelt web.
The inaugural Tiny Awards are now over, and the winner is... Rotating Sandwiches, by Lauren Walker!
CONGRATULATIONS, LAUREN! Rotating Sandwiches is small, fun, pointless, playful, whimsical, silly and lovely, all of the qualities we wished to embody with these awards — it is a worthy winner.
We have been overwhelmed by the response to our Tiny idea - over 300 websites submitted, over 1500 votes, and countless links and Tweets (X-eets?) and newsletter posts and online mentions — and wanted to again take a moment to thank mmm.page for providing the perfect home, and our esteemed selection panel, and Matt Klein at ZINE, for all their help.
We wanted to share the full list of nominees with you, because we think every single link submitted should be celebrated — so if you click here, you can find a list of all the submitted urls which are a dizzying snapshot of the boundless creativity and artistic endeavour (and, occasionally, silliness) of the web (and, by extension, the people who make it).
Thanks to every single person who engaged with these awards in any way — we kiss your collective faces.
The Tiny Awards will return in 2024, but, until then, let's just enjoy some gently rotating bread-based snacks and glory in the beauty and small majesty of the Tiny web.
Kristoffer and Matt
