Title of Entry: “Brains Under Siege | The Battle to Stop Alzheimer’s”
Category: 135. Video | Documentary

Alzheimer’s, as we all know, is a devastating disease which effects not just victims, but their families as well. In this documentary, “The Brain Under Siege: The Battle to Stop Alzheimer’s”, the producers follow one family being studied at Washington University in St. Louis. The protagonist, a husband and father of two, has a rare inherited gene that has wrecked his family for generations. His father has Alzheimer’s, he’s likely to have Alzheimer’s, and his children have a 50-50 chance of developing the same. The documentary humanizes the disease presenting both reality and hope. It takes a hard to visualize subject and brings it to life through emotional cinematography and stellar directing.

Title of Entry: “Sam Zell’s Personal Website”
Category: 52. Website Creativity | Website Design

It’s not every day you come across a bright yellow website, and it’s not every day you come across someone as interesting as Sam Zell. Our friends at Rightpoint put together a dynamic, creative, and informational personal website for one of the most fascinating and quotable pioneers of entrepreneurship.

In reading through the site, visitors are informed of the self-proclaimed “Chairman of Everything, CEO of Nothing.” He has been founding and building hundreds of companies and creating thousands of jobs for nearly 50 years. He is an accomplished author, designer, artist, philanthropist, educator, mentor, and visionary.

The website layout is fresh, fun, and surprisingly modern for a man with such a well-established career in business. As you explore the site you are taken through a digital timeline of his career, his creativity, and his entrepreneurship. The photography is stunning, and the information is just enough to understand who he is, and keep you wanting more information on him (which is conveniently located at the bottom of the homepage).

“If you’re not moving forward, you’re falling behind,” Zell says, and his website is nothing short of innovative and forward-thinking.

Title of Entry: “CNG Digital’s Impactful Video Campaign”
Category: 176. Video Creativity | Videography

When you think of San Diego, California what comes to mind? It’s usually beaches, sand, sun, and surfers. For CNG Digital Marketing and Fast Lane Drive, it’s an entirely new scene. One usually consisting of a five-lane highway filled with roaring Lamborghinis, McLarens, Aston Martins and Porches. FOMO (Fear of Missing Out) at its finest.

The video pairs picturesque sights of San Diego with dozens of speeding luxury cars, beautiful people, amazing food, and front row seats at some of the summer’s best music festivals. The editing is seamless and captures the immense joy from eventgoers while speeding through canyons and talking to each other through walkie talkies synced through their phones. The video showcases vlog-style footage of the weekend-long event following the team through pool parties, awards, casinos, private dinners, and champagne toasts — It’s as if Instagram came to life and you’re in the driver’s seat. Literally.

Title of Entry: “2018 CEO and Board Survey Report”
Category: 148. Electronic Media / Social Media / Interactive Media | E- Communication | 148. E-Annual Report

In the past, annual reports were sleek and slick publications printed on high-density coated paper imprinted with colorful pictures and graphs. Today, many firms are opting for digital publications that have more room for creative interpretation, as print rules don’t apply.

For most companies, the e-reports are a work in progress, but not Deloitte, industry-leading auditing, consulting, and tax services provider. Deloitte created a digital report to communicate the findings of their 2018 CEO and Board Survey. The digital report combines interactive graphics to capture the reader’s attention with concise writing to convey Deloitte’s key findings.  The result is a stunning interactive annual report that effectively communicates Deloitte’s findings and establishes the firm as a credible source of industry information.

Title of Entry: “LG Matte Black – Made to Stand Out”
Category: 163. Electronic Media / Social Media / Interactive Media | Video | 163. Marketing (Product)

Black is, well, the new black. In the past few decades, stainless steel appliances were necessary for a stylish kitchen. LG is going against the stainless trend by introducing a new matte black appliance line featuring refrigerators, stoves, microwaves, and dishwashers.

LG collaborated with HS Ad, a multi-service agency with offices in New York, Los Angeles, and Mexico, to promote the new matte black line. HS and LG aimed to differentiate the new line from other matte black appliance brands by marketing matte black as a lifestyle instead of only a finish option.

HS Ad created an ad campaign across multiple platforms and a private press event at Brooklyn’s all-black, Michelin-starred restaurant Aska. The campaign’s eye-catching content featured all-black foods, chic kitchens featuring black appliances and a punk pooch encouraging viewers to unleash their style. The campaign proved color isn’t necessary for attracting attention and garnered 100 million impressions with an engagement rate of 3.84%.  More importantly, the campaign increased LG sales by 25%.

Location: Philadelphia, PA
Title of Entry: “Boosting Engagement Across the Nation with ‘Philly Heaven in a Box'”
Category: 134c. Electronic Media / Social Media / Interactive Media | Social Media | Consumer Engagement Campaign (Multiple Platforms)

What if you’re a homesick NFL fan and can’t make it back to your city for the playoffs? If you’re a Philadelphia Eagles fan, the city comes to you.

Visit Philadelphia works year-round to promote the city’s image and increase visitation. When the Eagles made the Super Bowl LIII playoffs, the organization noticed an increase in engagement across the organization’s social media platforms. In turn, the Visit Philadelphia team quickly devised a strategy to utilize the playoffs excitement to spread awareness surrounding Philadelphia nationwide.

Visit Philadelphia asked Eagles fans living across the country what the perfect Superbowl party, and chose 20 winners. Each of these winning fans received a special nostalgia package overnight, containing Philly cheese steaks, Tastykakes, and Eagles paraphernalia. In return, the homesick fans filmed themselves opening the package for their reactions.

Upon receiving the unboxing videos, Visit Philadelphia created an emotional video compilation of the excited fans receiving their nostalgia packages. The compilation was shared across the organization’s social media platforms and received an overwhelming response. Visit Philadelphia’s entire campaign, from initial question to unboxing video, garnered 7,400 engagements and a reach of more than 313,600.
