Emakina is ‘Horizon Interactive Top Agency’, with 19 awards
The Horizon Interactive Awards recognized Emakina as the winner of its new highest distinction, the “Top Agency/ Developer of the year” Award.
For the first time in its 13-year history, the jury awarded this special non-entry honor, based on Emakina’s 19 individual award wins, including five ‘Best of Category’ awards.
The Horizon Interactive Awards has become one of the most prestigious awards in the field of interactive and creative media. This year’s competition gathered over 1.200 entries from 27 countries, and agencies from nearly all 50 of the United States of America.
The competition recognizes, promotes and awards the best web sites, videos, online advertising, print media and mobile applications. Each year, a panel of industry professionals from diverse multi-media, graphic design, advertising and marketing backgrounds, review the entries to determine the work that is to be recognized.
Mike Sauce, President of the Horizon Interactive Awards, comments: “Congratulations to Emakina for winning our first “Top Agency/ Developer of the Year” Award. They showed outstanding all-round innovative and creative work in interactive campaigns, web building, social, commerce and video. They are a true example to the trade, in carrying interactive communication to a higher level.”
Emakina CEO Brice Le Blévennec feels proud and grateful for the praise and the special honour. In an interview with the Horizon organization, he stressed the value of motivated talents, confirming that Emakina scoots the world for the bests and provides them an environment to learn, shine and show the best of them.
