The digital industry has many ways by which to recognize and honor the best work on the web. In 2019, Oomph made an intentional effort to submit our work to be judged among all the other fantastic work being created by our peers. We are very pleased and honored to have our projects awarded by many well-established competitions.
The award shows and the winning projects in alphabetical order:
Acquia Engage Awards
Acquia is a digital experience company offering enterprise clients everything from platform hosting to a personalization platform. Each year, Acquia hosts the Engage Awards where clients who use their services are eligible. It was a small pool of 100 submissions this year, from which 48 projects were selected as Nominees. Nominees demonstrated an advanced level of functionality, integration, performance, and overall user experience. Only 16 projects were chosen as finalists, selected by an outside panel of experts.
Nominee: RISD Museum — Maker category, Excellence in Digital Marketing
The Communicator Awards are an annual open, global call for submissions honoring the best in advertising, corporate communications, public relations and identity work for print, video, interactive and audio. In its 25th year, the competition received over 6,000 entries in 19 categories.
Winner: RISD Museum — Excellence, Websites/General/Cultural Institutions; Distinction, Features / User Interface
The Davey Awards exclusively honor the “Davids” of creativity, the finest small shops, firms, agencies, and companies worldwide. “We are proud to once again showcase the outstanding work that comes from small shops across the globe. The Davey Awards recognize those who utilize flawless execution, groundbreaking technology, and a fresh approach to the thought process to produce top-tier content” noted Derek Howard, Executive Director of the AIVA. In its 15th year, the awards garnered over 3,000 entries this year and honored three of our clients:
The dotCOMM Awards recognize cutting-edge digital projects across media and delivery mechanisms. There were over 2,000 entries from throughout the United States, Canada, and 14 other countries in the dotCOMM Awards 2019 competition. Entries came from corporate marketing and communication departments, digital shops, advertising agencies, PR firms, production companies, and freelancers.
The 25th Summit Awards drew more than 4,500 submissions from around the world. Judges came from both large and small-size companies and universities in 11 countries. “Those involved in today’s emerging media technologies are the leaders who are establishing tomorrow’s avenues of advertising communications and emphasizing the importance of the consumer’s experience.” Said Jocelyn Luciano, Executive Director for the Summit International Awards (SIA).
The W3 Awards is the first major web competition to be accessible to the biggest agencies, the smallest firms, and everyone in between. Small firms are as likely to win as Fortune 500 companies and international agencies. The broad character of the web is embraced here. In its thirteenth season, the W³ Awards received over 5,000 entries from advertising agencies,
PR firms, interactive agencies, in-house creative professionals, web designers, graphic
designers, and web enthusiasts.
The Webbys are probably the best-known honor awarded to digital producers. It consists of categories in seven major media types and awards a “Webby Award” (judge selected) and “People’s Voice Award” selected by votes from the public. In 2019, the Webbys selected the RISD Museum as one of five Nominees to be open for voting by the public. While the RISD Museum did not win the honor, it was being judged against such household brand names as LEGO, Planned Parenthood, YouTube, and Medium.
Nominee: RISD Museum — Websites: Best Visual Design/Function
Congratulations to all
Congrats go out to all of our winning clients and their projects. It feels fantastic to be recognized among so many of our peer companies. We are looking forward to another winning year in 2020.
