San Diego, CA (PRWEB) April 24, 2009
MEA Digital (http://www.meadigital.com), a top 50 interactive agency, has been selected as an Official Honoree at the 13th annual Webby Awards in the Rich Media Advertising (Business-to-Consumer) category for their work on Emblem. The banner, created to boost awareness of a winter clothing line designed by Oakley with snowboarder Gretchen Bleiler, allowed users to create their own custom emblem, download it, and share it with their friends.
Established in 1996, the Webby Awards is the leading international awards show honoring excellence on the internet, including websites, online film and video, interactive advertising, and mobile marketing. In fact, it has been hailed as the "Internet's highest honor" by the New York Times. Winners are selected by the International Academy of Digital Arts & Sciences, a global organization whose 550 members include Web experts, business figures, luminaries, visionaries, and creative celebrities such as David Bowie, Harvey Weinstein, Arianna Huffington, Matt Groening, Internet inventor Vinton Cerf, Twitter co-founder Biz Stone, Virgin Group Chairman Richard Branson, and R/GA Chairman and CEO Bob Greenberg to name a few. Former winners include Amazon.com, iTunes, Google, FedEx, The New York Times, NPR, Flickr, ESPN, Comedy Central, and more.
"The Webby's represent the upper echelon of award shows," said MEA Digital CEO Michael Chaney. "Each year, the Academy recognizes only the best and brightest. In fact, of the nearly 10,000 entries submitted in 2009, fewer than 15% were distinguished as an Official Honoree. To be included in this elite group is a special privilege and a testament to our agency's creative capabilities."
