We are excited and very proud to announce that we have been honored with a Platinum AVA Digital Award for our 2016 Holiday video!
The AVA Digital Awards is an international competition that recognizes outstanding work by creative professionals involved in the concept, direction, design and production of media that is part of the evolution of digital communication. Work ranges from audio and video productions- to websites that present interactive components such as video, animation, blogs, and podcasts- to interactive social media sites- to other forms of user-generated communication.
AVA Digital Awards is administered and judged by the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals (AMCP). The international organization consists of several thousand production, marketing, communication, advertising, public relations, and free-lance professionals. AMCP administers recognition programs, provides judges and rewards outstanding achievement and service to the profession.
Judges are industry professionals who look for companies and individuals whose talent exceeds a high standard of excellence and whose work serves as a benchmark for the industry. This year there were 2,500 entries from throughout the United States, Canada, and 16 other countries.
The AVA Digital Award was designed to pay tribute to the magnificent history of the audio-visual and web industries. The elegant woman holding a film reel or media disk that morphs into an array of cubes, is symbolic of the evolution of digital interactivity and the web.
This time of year is always hectic for us. We are involved with several industry organizations and January is the start of the awards competition season for many.
The competitions are a great way to support our local and national associations and gives us a chance to see the latest trends within the industry.
Today we submitted two pieces into the Printing Industries of the Gulf Coast (PIGC) Graphic Excellence Awards. One entry is a direct mail piece we created for a local nonprofit to solicit enrollment in the ACA; the other is our BEB Interactive Calendar! Winners will be announced in March, so keep your fingers crossed for us!
We’ve also entered our interactive calendar into the 2015 AVA Digital Awards for our use of QR Codes. Winners will be announced on February 2nd and you can see our online submission by clicking here.
We’re also working on our essay questions for the Better Business Bureau (BBB) Awards of Excellence competition. Entries are due by February 10th, and the entire company has submitted answers so we can submit an entry where everyone has contributed to the process!
Rounding out this year’s attempts will be the 2015 Hermes Awards and the coveted Houston AMA Crystal Awards. It’s a busy time in the Marketing Department at BEB!
