The multiplatform event “The Big Kidnapping”, produced by RTVE in collaboration with Shine Iberia for the digital channel Playz, has received an honorable mention at the Webby Awards in the category of ‘Rare or experimental’.
The format of our production company has won two awards in recent weeks with this project: just a few days ago we announced the Silver Globe received at the Hamburg TV festival.
‘The big kidnapping’ is an original idea of Manuel Bartual and Modesto García inspired by escape rooms and video games. The four “kidnapped” celebrities involved in the kidnapping were: singer Ruth Lorenzo, rapper Arkano and presenters Máximo Huerta and María Gómez.

The hostages had to pass various games in order to escape, always with the help of viewers who followed them live from the Playz digital channel. Help to escape came through social media, making the event trending topic on twitter for several days.
