The Organization for Transformative Works is excited to announce that the Archive of Our Own has won the 2019 Hugo Award in the category of Best Related Work! This is the first time an OTW project has won — or been a finalist for — a Hugo Award!
Our latest releases bring improvements for tag wranglers and site admins, along with a handful of user-facing bug fixes.
In July, the Archive of Our Own celebrated two big milestones: 2 million registered users and 5 million fanworks! Coincidentally, this milestone comes a year to the day after AO3 hit 4,000,000 fanworks on 20 July, 2018 -- the fastest growth in AO3's ten-year history.
