The bastion of ground-breaking technological solutions innovates itself in 2017 with the introduction of two new categories. ‘Technological Craft & Development’ will award the technical prowess behind the ideas, while ‘Early Stage Technology’ offers a space for prototypes and beta stage ideas. Take a look at these exciting new categories and more over at the Innovation Spikes awards page.
Context is everything for Media Spikes, therefore breadth and clarity is required in order to recognise communication that truly shines. Refinements this year include a more definitive split between ‘Use of TV’ and ‘Other Screens’ in B categories, plus the reintroduction of ‘Use of Technology’. Three new specific data categories have been introduced in response to industry demand. Further details on all categories are over on the Media Spikes awards page.
As the industry finds its feet with virtual reality on mobile devices, we at Spikes are listening and reflecting what correct terms, descriptions and definitions are used for new and emerging technologies. As such, we believe that it is now important to differentiate between VR experiences and 360° Videos when it comes to fair judging. Check out these changes plus all categories and descriptions over on the dedicated Mobile Spikes awards page.
