The WeTransfer Studios documentary of FKA twigs' impromptu dance workshop in Baltimore has won a prestigious advertising award. The Baltimore Dance Project scooped a Silver Clio Award in the film category of the Clio Music Awards.
The Baltimore Dance Project is directed by Nick Walker and chronicles British artist FKA twigs as she calls together a community of 400 dancers to celebrate artistic expression. The film shows how dance brings together people of all backgrounds and abilities, and how the artist inspires a unique sense of local pride and creative experimentation. The film premiered on WeTransfer’s editorial platform This Works with a specially designed microsite.

This award is really meant for our friends, the creative community, the producers, makers, and shapers.Damian Bradfield, President, and CMO of WeTransfer.
