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/.

With the proliferation of connected devices underpinning new Internet of Things systems, Brandon Schulz, Director of Luxoft IoT – Retail, will be looking at the transformation of the retail customer experience in brick and mortar stores in his session at @ThingsExpo. Questions he will address include: Will beacons drop to the wayside like QR codes, or be a proximity-based profit driver? How will the customer experience change in stores of all types when everything can be instrumented and analyzed? As an area of investment, how might a retail company move towards an innovation methodolo...
Manufacturing connected IoT versions of traditional products requires more than multiple deep technology skills. It also requires a shift in mindset, to realize that connected, sensor-enabled “things” act more like services than what we usually think of as products. In his session at @ThingsExpo, David Friedman, CEO and co-founder of Ayla Networks, will discuss how when sensors start generating detailed real-world data about products and how they’re being used, smart manufacturers can use the data to create additional revenue streams, such as improved warranties or premium features. Or slash...
Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as soon as they are needed to take action.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Luis Lopez, CEO of Kurento, will introduce the technologies required for implementing these ideas and some early experiments performed in the Kurento open source software community in areas ...

As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?
The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.
