30 August, International — International Awards Associates Inc (IAA) announced its new awards competition. The 2016 Vega Digital Awards will highlight the top digital design projects and advertising campaigns from around the world, producing valuable, global-scale exposure for talented, up and coming professionals, students, and agencies.
Until the final entry deadline of November 18, all are invited to nominate projects in any of the more than 200 Vega categories, with digital creations ranging from personal websites to mobile productivity apps and viral marketing campaigns being eligible for judging and prizes. Every entry will be evaluated by a panel of qualified judges within 30 days after the submission deadline, with winners being featured prominently on the Vega website and otherwise showcased for the world to see.
Current students may enter the competition free of regular charges, needing only to pay a small administrative fee, while professionals and agencies will enjoy an early-bird discount of $10 off the regular entry price until September 12. Easy to enter and designed to deliver the greatest possible exposure to those who participate, the 2016 Vega marketing, social media, video, and Website Awards will inaugurate what is set to become a long-running, highly respected tradition.
“There are millions of incredibly talented people worldwide working in digital media and marketing, and it’s time that they got the recognition they deserve,” IAA representative Sharon said, “We’ve set out to do that with the 2016 Vega awards, and the early response has been extremely gratifying. With plenty of time remaining to enter, we encourage talented creators of all kinds to stop by the Vega website, learn more, and enter their own projects. We’ve made it easy for everyone from students to seasoned professionals to participate and gain valuable exposure.”
The brightest star in the night sky is known as Vega and has been studied by scientists more intensely than any other save our own sun. In Japanese mythology, Vega is depicted as a woman yearning for her lover, Altair, who shines almost as brightly but spends much of the year far beyond her embrace. Once a year, the two draw close, bringing a pair of the nocturnal firmament’s most outstanding sights within figurative reach of one another in a fashion that emphasizes the extraordinariness of each.
Created to highlight the world’s top talents in the fields of digital design, production, and marketing, the Vega awards will do the same for the best of those who enter. Equipped with over 200 categories designed to reflect the full range of what creatives working in the digital domain accomplish today, the Vega awards will enable the top global talents to receive the recognition and attention they deserve for their efforts. With entries for the 2016 website, marketing, and Video Competition being accepted until the deadline of November 18, early bird fee discounts are available through September 12.
