Forensic Detective: Inside the Crime Scene, Oxygen’s augmented reality app, has been nominated for a 2019 Webby Award in Games: Best Use of Augmented Reality, and we want your vote to help us win. Launched in 2018, our app allows users to immerse themselves in a life-size, hologram-like arena to look for clues and use forensic tools to solve a brutal murder. With groundbreaking AR technology, we continue to transport true crime fans out of their living rooms and into active crime scenes.
The Webby Awards, dubbed the “Internet’s highest honor” by The New York Times, presents two awards in each category — The Webby Award, chosen by members of the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences (IADAS), and The Webby People’s Voice Award, chosen by fans. If you love playing armchair detective with us, create an account and vote for Forensic Detective: Inside the Crime Scene. The polls are open now until Thursday, April 18 at 11:50 pm.
For our work on the seven-episode podcast, “Unspeakable Crime: The Killing of Jessica Chambers,” Oxygen has also been recognized as a Webby Honoree in Podcasts: Television & Film. Hosted by legal analyst Beth Karas, the audio series coincided with the docu-series of the same name, which premiered on Oxygen in 2018. “Unspeakable Crime: The Killing of Jessica Chambers” is a deep-dive into the chilling murder case of Chambers, who was just 19 when she was burned alive in Mississippi on December 6, 2014. Stream the podcast here.
We appreciate your support of all Oxygen’s true crime digital ventures, and we hope we can count on your vote for the 2019 Webby Awards.
