Collipsis had the honor of being recognized in the 2016 AVA Digital Awards, an international competition that recognizes outstanding work by creative professionals involved in the concept, direction, design and production of media that is part of the evolution of digital communication. Work ranges from audio and video productions- to websites that present interactive components such as video, animation, blogs, and podcasts- to interactive social media sites- to other forms of user-generated communication.
Collipsis won 2 golds, one for Jeff Bardel Ministries and another for the 21 Seconds Book site. Collipsis also received an Honorable Mention for the D-BAT Redesigns.
AVA Digital Awards is administered and judged by the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals (AMCP). The international organization consists of several thousand production, marketing, communication, advertising, public relations, and free-lance professionals. AMCP administers recognition programs, provides judges and rewards outstanding achievement and service to the profession.
As part of its mission, AMCP fosters and supports the efforts of creative professionals who contribute their unique talents to public service and charitable organizations. AVA Digital entrants are not charged to enter work they produced pro bono. Over the past several years, AMCP’s Advisory Board gave out over $150,000 in grants to support philanthropic efforts. That money was used for marketing materials for homeless shelters; orphanages; day camps; community theaters and art centers; and for programs and equipment for the elderly and disabled; childcare; and educational endeavors for the underprivileged.
Judges are industry professionals who look for companies and individuals whose talent exceeds a high standard of excellence and whose work serves as a benchmark for the industry. There are expected to be about 2,500 entries from throughout the United States and many other countries in the 2016 AVA Digital Awards. In the past, about 15 percent of entries won Platinum, the top award and around 20 percent the Gold Award.
Approximately 10 percent were Honorable Mention winners.
The AVA Digital Award was designed to pay tribute to the magnificent history of the audio-visual and web industries. The elegant woman holding a film reel or media disk that morphs into an array of cubes, is symbolic of the evolution of digital interactivity and the web.
