[image-1]Often Awesome, the web series that follows Tim LaFollette after his diagnosis with ALS, won the award for Best Web Series at NYC’s Web Fest. Charleston City Paper‘s Oct. 22 cover star Andy Coon along with his co-creator Blake Faucette beat out four other series to take home the prize in the inaugural web fest on Fri. Nov. 21.

The duo didn’t even know they had been selected as a finalist until a week before the festival. “It was unexpected. We did not attend the festival,” Coon explains. “To be honest we never know how it will do in festivals. Each are so different and it all depends on the judging. We are extremely proud that Often Awesome took home best web series and spreading Tim’s story and ALS awareness is what it is all about.”
