A handful of direct selling companies collected 43 awards altogether in the 2014 AVA Digital Awards, an international competition recognizing excellence in digital communication.
Ten years ago a Harvard University student founded a little social networking website called Facebook. Today, Facebook is a global Internet phenomenon with 1.2 billion users. More than 200 million active users are posting photos and videos to Instagram, and 58 percent of American adults have a smartphone.
With the speed and flow of information through these new technologies, audio-visual professionals are constantly innovating to engage audiences and communicate effectively. The AVA Digital Awards honor the people who are ideating, directing, designing and producing the best in digital media.
The Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals administered and judged 2,100 entries in this year’s competition. Entrants included production companies, web developers, advertising agencies, PR ﬁrms, corporate and government communication departments, and a slew of independent creative professionals.
