The Digipub awards for best site design and best video feature showcase that both users and the industry appreciate good work.
What is even more special for us is that we won alongside, The Quint, Times Network, Vice India, The Lallantop and others who are the best names in the business.
It is all the hard work put in by the team, that we have come to this stage in such a short period of time.”

However, we felt that it best showcased our intent when it comes to providing knowledgeable content to our audiences. While most Indian language publishers shy away from such topics, we want to give our audiences interesting insights into a wide variety of topics.”
