Backbone Magazine Selects Pixton for PICK20 Award
July 28, 2009
Hot off the press in today's issue of The Globe and Mail, Pixton was named one of the "20 companies that are driving innovation and changing the way we use the Internet" by Backbone Magazine.
Judge Michael Geist, an expert in internet and e-commerce law, enjoyed seeing something “new and creative” and Judge Bradley Shende, media expert on Global’s Morning News, said Pixton “outputs creativity, collaboration, crowdsourcing and community all in an innovative new spin on an old, previously non-democratic medium.”
PICK20 is the only national ranking of its kind and judges scored the nominees against five criteria: ROI, competitive advantage, ongoing value, execution and innovation. Other winners include Now Public, Kaboose, and social gaming powerhouse Club Penguin.
So far we've doubled our membership twice over the past six months, with over a quarter of a million characters created. Our vision is to transform how the world makes comics, creating a premier destination on the web while driving a high-growth business, and this award recognizes us at a time when we're only just getting started!
