    What more can be said?

    We are delighted to announce Sexperience came away as the winner for 'Best Website' at last night's Broadcast Digital Awards.

    We have been working on Sexperience with Channel 4 for the last four years, improving it year on year. In this refresh, we concentrated on unifying the areas of the site under topics most relevant to teenagers. We also made waves with Sexperience 1000, an interactive data visualiser around sex we realised with the help of our partners Lingobee.

    Thanks to the Mints who all worked very hard on Sexperience, thanks to Endemol for their contributions and thanks to Adam Gee and all at Channel 4 for the opportunity to keep making great work. Last but not least, thanks to Broadcast Magazine for the hangover.
