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/.

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense.

The cloud promises new levels of agility and cost-savings for Big Data, data warehousing and analytics.

Most people haven’t heard the word, “gamification,” even though they probably, and perhaps unwittingly, participate in it every day. Gamification is “the process of adding games or game-like elements to something (as a task) so as to encourage participation.” Further, gamification is about bringing game mechanics – rules, constructs, processes, and methods – into the real world in an effort to engage people. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robert Endo, owner and engagement manager of Intrepid D...
Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Learn how IoT, cloud, social networks and last but not least, humans, can be integrated into a seamless integration of cooperative organisms both cybernetic and biological. This has been enabled by recent advances in IoT device capabilities, messaging frameworks, presence and collaboration services, where devices can share information and make independent and human assisted decisions based upon social status from other entities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Michael Heydt, founder of Seamless...

There are so many tools and techniques for data analytics that even for a data scientist the choices, possible systems, and even the types of data can be daunting. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Harrold, Global CTO for Big Data Solutions for EMC Corporation, showed how to perform a simple, but meaningful analysis of social sentiment data using freely available tools that take only minutes to download and install. Participants received the download information, scripts, and complete end-t...
For manufacturers, the Internet of Things (IoT) represents a jumping-off point for innovation, jobs, and revenue creation. But to adequately seize the opportunity, manufacturers must design devices that are interconnected, can continually sense their environment and process huge amounts of data. As a first step, manufacturers must embrace a new product development ecosystem in order to support these products.
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, discussed how when sensors start generating detailed real-world data about products and how they’re being used, smart manufacturers can use the dat...
When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT’s direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Buildi...
