Visual Communications Awards

Geny Caloisi

Although there are already several awards for the DS industry, I believe the IVCA Awards are worth looking at from a content creation point of view as well as for integrated digital out of home solutions (see categories bellow).

Submissions are being accepted for the 2011 IVCA Awards until next Wednesday, January 12, 2011.

The IVCA is the International Visual Communications Association, and for the past 30 years it has held the IVCA Awards, celebrating effective business and public sector communications in video, interactive projects, business television and digital media across Europe.  The glittering ceremony is normally held at the Grosvenor House Hotel, London; with a guest list of over 700 commissioners, government representatives, industry creatives and the media – if nothing else it’s a great place to network.

Marco Forgione, IVCA’s Chief Executive commented at the 2010 awards: “The IVCA Awards are an annual celebration of the finest creativity, innovation and expertise that the corporate communications industry has to offer. Once again this year the standard of entries was exceptional and we are delighted that clients across all sectors are continuing to invest in visual communications, recognising the intrinsic worth and commercial acumen that can be gained by such activities.”
