Washington, DC (PRWEB) March 17, 2011
The Pollie Awards, the most prestigious competition in the campaigns and elections industry, presented three awards to ElectionMall.com for their work in 2010.
ElectionMall won the best International Internet Campaign for President Juan Manuel Santos, who was 14 points behind when ElectionMall.com took over the Internet campaign and used their digital efforts to stop the “green wave” of Santos’ opponent, Antanas Mockus, who was aggressively rising in the polls. The website had over 1,000 microsites for each municipality and gathered the largest amount of online voter data in the history of Latin America in less than 28 days.
“We are so happy to receive this award from the AAPC and very excited for the Colombian people,” said ElectionMall.com CEO and Founder, Ravi Singh. “The ability to help spread democracy via website and empower them is a great mission for ElectionMall.com.”
ElectionMall.com was also recognized with another Pollie Award for “Best Use of an Online Game” for the creation and development of video game called “Super Santos” that allowed players to help Santos fight unemployment, narcotics, traffickers, insecurity, and poverty.
The leader in Software as a Service and cloud based technology for campaigns and elections, ElectionMall.com is a non-partisan technology company and provides campaigns of all sizes, from school board moms to presidential campaigns, the right technology tools to help them raise money, generate awareness, and increase votes. The Santos campaign was the first campaign that used the Campaign Cloud, powered by Microsoft, and is available for any candidate running for office.
“This could not have been done without a great team,” said ElectionMall.com Director of Web Strategy Aaron Ronsheim. “Our technology, because it is Software as a Service, is getting better from each election cycle and we are learning from each campaign. Microsoft technology allows us to take campaigns to the next level, just like we did in Colombia.”
The awards were presented in Washington D.C. and Singh will be visiting Bogota, Colombia to speak at Rosario University this week about the “digital revolution.”
Roberto Pierto, Campaign Manager of President Santos campaign stated, “The digital efforts made during the campaign were crucial to our success, we are very happy to have worked with digital guru Ravi Singh and the Campaign Cloud, powered by Microsoft, but the real award goes to the Colombian people for participating and making our digital efforts a reality.”
ElectionMall.com would also like to give special recognition to Sistole, Sancho Advertising, and Market Medios for their efforts in the campaign and the Web 2.0 Team for SantosPresidente.com
