The 43rd Annual Creativity International Media and Interactive Judging Session was conducted online, over a twenty one-day period.
The Jury, consisting of digital and media experts from the USA, New Zealand, Netherlands, India, and Canada, viewed and scored every entry within their medium ensuring that all the work was judged equally. They concluded with final discussions to determine the Best in Show selections from both the Professional and Student divisions. It is not mandatory for a Jury to select a Best in Show winners.
Kathleen Ritchie, Director of Creativity Awards stated, “This year’s Jury worked diligently, donating their time - nights and weekends - to be sure all entries were given their due consideration. The results reflect the Jury's consideration of use of message integrated with dynamic creative including visual and technical elements."
Some jury comments were:
"Love the use of technology, information and interactivity of this friendly and well designed site."
"One of my 5 top picks for the web categories. Easy to navigate, very attractive use of technology. Informative without being overdone."
"One of my top 6 pics from all of the website design categories combined. Easy to use interactive website that works to provide an alternative solution to drug usage - a tall task, but i think this is an effective solution that can help to change the mindset of our youth. Excellent use of technology with a straightforward, intuitive visual environment."
"Great interactive experience for kids and ummm... adults like myself. Kept losing control of my car on the racetrack. Effective way to get kids/users to interact with their favorite characters while anticipating a visit to Disney. Very well done."
"Only two thirds of the over 500 entries submitted were selected for an award this year - that attests to the strength of competition and the quality of entries being submitted from around the world," Kathleen said.
Best in Show, Professional was awarded to AKQA in Washington D.C., USA for an Educational App titled "WWF Together."
