Emakina can place six shining new awards statuettes in its international trophy display…
The ‘digital native’ agency won 6 Communicator Awards, five Awards of Excellence and one Award of Distinction from the International Academy of Visual Arts. This prestigious New York based Academy honored campaigns, websites, and video productions made by Emakina with Gold for Yunomi (Unilever), Schweppes, Microsoft and NGO Close the Gap and with Silver for Baxter’s haemophilia website.
A first Gold Award was for the interactive Community Yunomi for Unilever. This site has become the largest Benelux platform for women and is still growing in popularity and traffic.
Mona, the Museum of Neverending Art, a project from Emakina.FR, also struck gold. This user-generated artwork attracted over 50 000 contributions and well over 120 000 page views, demonstrating the benefits of Microsoft’s internet Explorer 9 browser.
Another Gold Award was for the new website for Close the Gap, in the NGO Website category. This site combines clear messages with an attractive look and feel, balancing the delivery of serious project information with a user friendly, attractive environment.
For Schweppes, Emakina received two Gold Awards, one in the category ‘video’ for the series ‘Perfect Serve’ and one in the category ‘Rebranding’. Emakina refreshed the sparkle of Schweppes in the eyes of European consumers, giving it a contemporary twist and heightening brand awareness.
The website for Belgian hemophilia patients and the community surrounding them, an initiative from Baxter, received a Silver Award in the Health category.
