Moodrise
1000 Awards
Recognizing the world’s most nutritious digital content.

ENDORSED BY

Dr. Hans Ringertz

Former Chairman of the Nobel Prize Committee on Medicine or Physiology

We’ve scoured the internet to find the very best content–just for you.

Not all content is created equally. Some films, certain television shows, and specific videos can actually improve the way you feel. Mood isn't fixed or finite–it's fluid. That's why we're making a bold first attempt to select and celebrate the healthiest content in the English-speaking world, organized by neurotransmitters (NTs): the brain chemicals strongly correlated with specific mood states.

Search through our selections and let us know what you love.

MEET THE JUDGES

Our panel of world-class judges, each of them leaders in their field, have selected their favorite ten (10) films, TV shows, or videos clips. These selections comprise the Moodrise Top 100.
