Media Week Awards: We Won Silver!!

Well hot DAMN! BuzzFeed’s partnership with Alzheimer’s Society only went and won silver for Media Idea Under 250k!

More specifically it was for this post here, called The Hardest Trivia Quiz You’ll Ever Take.

Out of all the posts I’ve worked on for BuzzFeed so far, I am most proud of co-conceiving this quiz with Nicky Williams, (there’s us pictured above, with me dressed as Bruce Wayne). This was designed to help people see the world through the eyes of someone living with dementia. It starts off like a normal BuzzFeed trivia quiz, but the questions get more and more confusing as you go along. For example this question below, where you have to identify this random person, but you’re told she’s your sister:

And now, I am ultra proud because of the recognition that it has received through winning silver at the Media Week Awards, bringing more attention to a very important charity.
