Now in its seventh year, the Horizon Interactive Awards is a global awards competition designed to highlight the ‘best-of-the-best’ in interactive media production.
The RØDE Microphones web site (www.rodemic.com) was recognised with Bronze awards in both the ‘Consumer Information’ and ‘Self Promotion/Company Identity’ categories, while RØDE’s innovative online education initiative, RØDE University (www.rodeuniversity.com) was recognised with a Silver award in the ‘Training’ category.
“RØDE is really excited to be awarded in such a prestigious manner” responded Scott Emerton, RØDE Microphones’ Communication Manager. “When creating and developing both the rodemic.com and rodeuniversity.com web sites the primary focus for our in-house team was to provide the best possible user experience. We really feel we’ve been successful in that respect and being awarded in such a manner reinforces our resolve to maintain that focus.”
RØDE joins a respected list of globally recognised brands to be acknowledged in this year’s awards, including Nike, Reebok, Honda, Mercedes-Benz, Puma, Dolce & Gabbana, Casio, Adobe, Samsung and Sony.
“The 2008 competition was the most competitive to date. The work in this year’s competition is at such a high level that the judges really had their work cut out for them,” said Mike Sauce, founder of the Horizon Interactive Awards. “All of the winning entries displayed a high level of sophistication, aesthetic creativity, technical excellence and clear purpose.“
The international competition saw over 1000 entries from 20 countries around the world, with a judging panel consisting of Horizon Interactive Awards advisors, end users and a global team of respected industry professionals.
