MAKERS Wins International Award

MAKERS, the first-of-its-kind multi-platform initiative from AOL, was honored last night with a FOCAL Award for the "Best Use of Footage on Digital or Non-Television Platforms." FOCAL, in association with the AP Archive, celebrates the best use of footage in a variety of genres and media platforms and recognizes the teams that create the footage, from producers to creative directors.

This international award highlights the premium content on MAKERS.com, but further speaks to the archival element inherent in the MAKERS mission to become the largest collection of women's stories ever assembled. We're proud to receive this international recognition and look forward to realizing even greater scale through our expansion to China and Canada.

AOL Autos Tech of the Year: Tesla Supercharger

We're excited to announce that the Tesla Supercharger was awarded 2013 Technology of the Year from AOL Autos at the International Consumer Electronics Show.

This year marks the second annual Technology of the Year program, with over 44 technologies nominated for the title. Back in November, AOL Autos announced six finalists during the Los Angeles Auto Show where the Tesla Supercharger was joined by Chevrolet MyLink Valet Mode, Infiniti Backup Collision Intervention, Mercedes-Benz Intelligent Drive, Mopar® In-Vehicle Wireless Charging for Portable Devices and Volvo Pedestrian and Cyclist Detection with Full Auto Brake at an offsite event at LA's Belasco Theater.

The panel of judges, comprised of industry experts from AOL Autos, Autoblog, Engadget and TechCrunch, went through grueling rounds of physical testing and found that the Tesla Supercharger raised the bar the highest when it comes to integrating technology into the world of autos. Giving Tesla owners the ability to charge their vehicles enough to drive 150 miles in about 30 minutes or less for free, the Tesla Supercharger changes the ways EVs are used and diminishes the concern of "range anxiety" among drivers. The infrastructure Tesla is building to support the Tesla Supercharger with fast-charging stations across the U.S. elevates EVs in the automotive industry today.

To help the esteemed board of judges find the best of the best in automotive technology, AOL Autos turned to their consumers in the last stage of deliberation. Readers were asked to vote for which among the six finalists they felt should take the title. With over 14,000 votes received, consumers also agreed that the Tesla Supercharger stood apart from its competitors, garnering 40% of overall public votes. The result of this poll equaled one judges' vote in final deliberation.

Congratulations to Tesla Supercharger on winning 2013 Technology of the Year!
