Chris Brady for the Carolinas HealthCare System
Here’s what the judges had to say about HeartMonth15:
HeartMonth 15 reveals why you would choose whiteboard animation to teach an audience. It's a compelling story that makes you listen and care. The uncluttered and characterful illustrations imbue it with continuity and class, working well with the thoughtful script and music.

Ug's Fright Before Christmas
Robbie Short for Robbie Short Illustration
Why did Robbie's video stand out for our judges?
UG's Fright Before Christmas made us smile. The seamless combination of strong script and beautiful, disciplined illustrations creates an original and delightful scribe. It draws so well, displaying a technical deftness that left us wondering how it had been done. A subtle but winsome approach to marketing.

How to Throw a Boomerang
What makes David's scribe a winner?
How to Throw a Boomerang just charmed us to bits. It made us want to run outside with a boomerang to try it out straight away. The illustrations are fantastic and the tone set perfectly by the didgeridoo and strong voiceover. It's utterly convincing – and funny to boot.
Congratulations to David, Robbie and Chris! And a massive thank you to all of you for entering and voting.
Here's a lovely parting message from our esteemed judges:
We had a hard time choosing the winners of the inaugural Scribeys awards. We were comparing scribes made for completely different contexts. 'Educa Digital 2014' is a great example of scribing a story to life for education. 'Story about a designed way of working together' is completely different, making a corporate theme human and fun. In the end we picked scribes where all the elements combine to lend a bit of magic to their subjects.
