The 8th annual awards, held in the US, aims to “recognise excellence in media production.” Horizon honours the most talented developers of interactive media. The competition provides a level playing field to all participants regardless of company size.
Cyber-Duck was chosen to receive the prestigious prize after judges were won over by the website’s user-orientated design, quirky and vibrant Flash animations and clear, concise copywriting.
The 2009 competition received over 2000 entries from 32 countries around the world including: Australia, Canada, Czech Republic, Columbia, Croatia, Germany, Egypt, Spain, France, Great Britain, Hong Kong, Hungary, Indonesia, Israel, Italy, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore, South Africa, Syria, Thailand, Turkey, Taiwan and nearly all 50 of the United States. An international panel of judges, consisting of top industry professionals with diverse backgrounds and experience, evaluated each of the categories ranging from online advertising to video games.
Cyber-Duck’s Matt Gibson commented, “This is a wonderful achievement and the Cyber-Duck team is delighted to have kept up a consistently high standard across the years. We aim to bring even more to the judging table next year.”
The Horizon Team added, “Winning a Horizon Interactive Award is a sign of great achievement and validation by your peers. Now in our 8th season, our mission is to promote great work. Our international panel of judges and one-of-a-kind end-user panel looks for the best blend of artistry and functionality.”
Cyber-Duck first won the Bronze award for Company Identity and Self-promotion back in 2007 with its last eye-catching website. In 2008 Cyber-Duck won another Bronze Horizon Award for its design and development of the Greenworks website (part of the Saint Gobain group).
