The Alternative was awarded two of the coveted prizes on the night which included the prestigious Gold award in the category of “External Live & Experiential Communications" with its innovative Gesture-Based Interactive Window, for client Orange.
The judges' citation read as follows
“Ground breaking truly engaging experience. The judges felt it stood out as a leading edge creative solution, which exceeds all their expectations. Inspiring, exciting and fun”
The Alternative also scooped a silver award in the “Internal Live & Experiential Communications”category for its work on the Orange Retail Unsigned experience. A project that set about championing the spirit of engagement with the Orange brand. Judges noted that it was
“A fun way to bring an external message internal. It created a story that maximised the brand positioning”.
IVCA Chief Executive, Marco Forgione, commented: “The Awards dinner on Friday evening was a wonderful celebration of the very best in the industry. We saw the incredible power and creativity of the industry, and its ability to establish meaningful emotional engagement with audiences.”
