Austin, Texas (PRWEB) April 12, 2012
Austin-based advertising and marketing agency SicolaMartin received two Golds and a Silver at the 2011 International Davey Awards. Sanctioned and judged by the International Academy of the Visual Arts, the Davey Awards are the largest and most prestigious awards competition exclusively for the "Davids" of creativity—honoring the achievements of small agencies who derive their strength from big ideas, rather than stratospheric budgets.
A Gold Davey was awarded for a Wired magazine video completed for AMD. Supplementing a four-page insert in the electronic version of the magazine, the video provides a glimpse into the future and how AMD technology will continue to define how generations today and tomorrow interact with their surroundings. A Gold Davey was also awarded for a unique sales video the agency created to promote the Dell UltraSharp monitor family to artists and engineers—one with high-impact images and eye-stopping graphics. Recognized with a Silver Award was the Gowalla “Where Will You Go” video. A high-energy video that debuted at SXSWi in 2011, it was created to help attendees of the interactive festival better understand what Gowalla was—a location-based social networking app that acquired by Facebook in December of 2011.
“We’re very excited to be honored three times by an award that is so near and dear to our hearts,” stated Diane McKinnon, EVP, Executive Creative Director at SicolaMartin. “Even though we’re part of Tech.YR—a global technology marketing practice within the Y&R Network—we’re proud of our innovative thinking that lets us find unique ways to meet client needs while adhering to their limited budgets.”
