Clio Internet Jury Awards 5 Golds

NEW YORK Five golds were handed out for Internet advertising at the 44th annual Clio Awards’ Print, Design, Innovative Media and Internet Awards ceremony Monday night in Miami.

The Internet jury, chaired by Michael Volkmer, managing director of Scholz & Volkmer in Wiesbaden, Germany, withheld the Grand Clio in Internet advertising, as did the juries in every category, except design.

WDDG took home a gold for Altoids.com. The New York shop also picked up a bronze for GoneSour.com, a Web site that plays off the campaign for citrus- and tangerine-flavored Altoids that featured yearbook photos of gawky teens.

DZinemOtion.com in Vancouver, British Columbia, won two golds for L’Orielle’s site titled “L’Orielle/We Make Music.” TBWA in London landed a gold for a site called “The Third Place,” created for Sony PlayStation 2.

R/GA nabbed a gold for NikeLab.com, a Web site that used a group of digital artists to showcase Nike’s product innovation. The New York interactive agency also received a silver for the same site.

Nike was a big Internet advertising winner at the Clio Awards, taking home eight awards. In addition to the honors it earned for Nike Lab, the Beaverton, Ore.-based athletic goods giant won silver for Nike Women and bronzes for Nike Freestyle and Panna K.O., all three sites from Framfab in Denmark, Copenhagen; bronzes for Nike Goddess and Nike Basketball, both from R/GA; and a bronze for Nike Bowerman from AKQA in London.

Two weeks ago, Nike dominated the One Show Interactive competition with nine Pencils from a range of work submitted by nine different agencies in seven countries [IQ Daily Briefing, May 8].

Fallon’s BMW Films campaign, which took home two Grand Clio awards in the categories of Internet advertising and innovative media last year, earned a bronze in Internet advertising for this year’s sequel.
