Arré has struck Gold at the WAN-IFRA World Digital Media Awards at Glasgow in the Best in Lifestyle, Sports, Entertainment Website or Mobile Services category. 

“This entry stands out for its distinctive commitment to video entertainment. The clean, impactful design is the icing on the cake. Beautiful product,” the judges said.

The Arré website and app are now in the august company of international heavyweights like the New York Times, the Guardian, and the Washington Post. 

Arré is also the only Indian website out of eight winners honoured at the 2019 edition of the awards. 

Magdoom Mohamed, Managing Director-South Asia-WAN IFRA said, “This is the third time Arré has won a WAN-IFRA award – the first time at a global level (and only the second time for an Indian brand). It’s truly promising to see such a young brand doing well, and we wish them more success.”

B. Saikumar, Founder, Arré, said: “We are honoured and humbled to receive such a reputed international award. When we started in April 2016, we had no idea that we’d find ourselves in the company of publishing giants like the Guardian, New York Times, and Washington Post, so soon after. No matter which medium we choose to tell stories in – long-form web shows, fiction or non-fiction video, audio, or text – it has been our constant endeavour to distinguish ourselves, and yet remain faithful to the voice we have so diligently carved in a crowded media landscape. We’re particularly thankful to our collaborators, contributors, partners, and advertisers. May great storytelling continue!”

The other winners at the WAN-IFRA awards include the Guardian, that won the Best News Website and Best Data Visualisation; The New York Times, that won for Best Use for Online Video; and Jota, Brazil, that won Best Digital News Start-up, among others.
