IAB Mixx Awards 2014 Shortlist Showcases the Best in Digital Marketing Creativity That Works

Innovation, imagination, and real-world results are key characteristics of the pace-setting creative work selected to be on the shortlist for the 10th anniversary IAB MIXX Awards. After weeks of review by a panel of digital media and marketing luminaries, the Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB) has unveiled the finalists for these prestigious awards – each of which reflects the finest work in digital advertising today, while also pointing to the trends that will drive tomorrow’s interactive arena. The shortlist includes 120 cutting-edge campaigns hailing from 11 countries from around the world.

Jeff Benjamin, currently Chief Creative Officer of JWT North America, is chairing the IAB MIXX Awards 2014 judging panel, guiding 32 cross-industry leaders, including the best-of-the-best agency creatives, blue-chip brand marketers, and top media publishing executives.

“The real power behind the IAB MIXX Awards is in its distinct ability to look not only at imaginative creative, but also at what actually works in digital advertising and how those ideas deliver on their promise,” said Benjamin. “Companies and individuals that have made the shortlist have received this honor because their work goes well beyond the artistry they brought to digital screens. These nominations celebrate interactive work that found its way into culture and really mattered, pulling consumers off the sidelines and getting them to participate with brands in extraordinary ways.”

“The shortlist for the 10th anniversary IAB MIXX Awards spotlights campaigns that confirm the sophisticated creativity that is now the hallmark of digital marketing,” said David Doty, Executive Vice President and CMO, IAB. “Interactive has become central to the marketing mix across the globe, and these nominees exemplify a new breed of digital advertising that embraces artistry, interaction, and rich storytelling with style and scale.”

The finalists and winners are honored each year at the IAB MIXX Awards Show, a dinner reception and celebration that is the culmination of the preeminent two-day IAB MIXX Conference held during Advertising Week in New York City. The 2014 event will take place at the Crowne Plaza Hotel Times Square (1605 Broadway at 49th Street) on Tuesday, September 30, and will commemorate the 10th anniversary of the competition.

This past year, for the first time, the IAB encapsulated lessons learned from the year’s best work in “What Works & Why: IAB MIXX Awards Insights Report 2013.” It includes expert commentary from digital industry superstars, including Benjamin and 16 other notables from the 2013 jury. They provide a deep dive into a curated collection of select winning campaigns. To see the complete gallery of past award-winners, please visit iab.net/mixxawards/gallery2013/.

However, many CIOs are realizing the dangers of following Gartner’s advice. The central challenge ...

There is an ever-growing explosion of new devices that are connected to the Internet using “cloud” solutions. This rapid growth is creating a massive new demand for efficient access to data.

And with that scaling comes the need for greater security, gathering and data analysis, storage, connectivity and, of course, the...
In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists will dis...
