Teknicks has been awarded two Silver W3 Awards for the redesign of the Garden State Film Festival website (gsff.org). The 2012 Winners were announced yesterday by the International Academy of the Visual Arts (IAVA). Teknicks competed with over 3,000 interactive agencies, designers, and creative professionals worldwide. Teknicks placed Silver in the categories of web design for music & film, and non-profit. In determining winners, entries are judged based on a standard of excellence determined by the IAVA, according to each category entered. The W³ Awards is the first major web competition to be accessible to agencies both big and small, and awards entrants solely based on outstanding work and creativity.
"We are honored to once again recognize creative excellence on the Web, and are humbled to witness all the amazing work being done throughout the industry" said Linda Day, Executive Director of the IAVA. "From everyone at the Academy, we congratulate our 2012 W³ Award entrants and winners for their contributions and commitment to the online world in which we live."
The Garden State Film Festival was founded to promote the art of filmmaking on all levels by showcasing a wide variety of film, video and animated works as well as provide educational programs in the creative arts to the public by industry leaders. The Garden State Film Festival was born in 2002 after a chance encounter in a Sea Girt, New Jersey grocery store by 25- year film industry veteran Diane Raver and the well-known Hollywood actor Robert Pastorelli. Through his deep ties to Hollywood, Mr. Pastorelli and Ms. Raver were able to bring an all-encompassing event to the State of New Jersey. It premiered in 2003 and was immediately deemed a huge success. Since that time, industry notables such as Glenn Close, Frank Vincent, Batman producer Michael Uslan, Austin Pendleton, Kurtwood Smith, James Gandolfini, Budd Schulberg, Clarence Clemons, Bruce Springsteen, Lainie Kazan and others have lent their support.
“We are honored to be acknowledged by such a prestigious group of professionals as the IAVA,” said Nick Chasinov, Founder & CEO of Teknicks. “The team worked hard to develop an engaging site that met the needs of the organization, we are humbled by the recognition we received, and proud to support the Garden State Film Festival.”
The W³ is sanctioned and judged by the International Academy of the Visual Arts, an invitation-only body consisting of top-tier professionals from a "Who's Who" of acclaimed media, interactive, advertising and marketing firms. IAVA members include executives from organizations such as Alloy, Brandweek, Coach, Disney, The Ellen Degeneres Show, Estee Lauder, Fry Hammond Barr, HBO, Monster.com, MTV, Polo Ralph Lauren, Sotheby’s Institute of Art, Victoria’s Secret, Wired, and Yahoo!.
