The special awards shortlist are now out – check the list on the BIMA blog. Not long till the gig – yay.
One of the most interesting things I’ve been up to recently is whittling down the best blog nominations from the hundreds submitted to the British Interactive Media Awards to the shortlist for public vote. You can vote for the one you think is the best here.
Here’s the list. Some you’ll know, some you may need to.
Here are three things I love: creativity, interactivity and participation. And here’s where they’re celebrated: the British Interactive Media Association awards for 2009 which you can enter NOW here www.bimaawards.com.
I’m honoured to be a judge and awards committee member this year. I’m chairing the Advertising category. So it’s time you stood up for your work and put it to the test before a fantastic collection of experienced judges, well versed in creativity, interactivity and participation.
A pretty cool list of industry colleagues and friends are on the judges list too – Paul Hammersley (The Red Brick Road), Robert Campbell (Campbell Lace Beta), Will King (King of Shaves), Michael Nutley (New Media Age), Gareth Jones (Revolution), Kelly Wright (Warner Bros.), Jody Smith (Channel 4), Adam Powers (BBC), Alex Smith (Microsoft) – the full list is here.
I’m posting stuff on the BIMA blog as well as a guest writer. BIMA is the British Interactive Media Association, the longest standing trade body representing the digital sector. It’s evolved over the years, most recently with Paul Walsh at the helm, into the only organisation focused purely on the digital creative sector, where Britain has a world class capability.
