April 12, 2012 by Dave Haynes

InWindow Outdoor won the Best in Show award yesterday at the MediaPost Digital Out-of-Home Media Awards ceremony in New York, held at the tail-end of that day-long Digital OOH forum.

The award was for that Run with Ryan campaign for Asics that was installed in New York’s Columbus Circle subway station. The installation, which has has won a few awards lately, let New Yorkers watch or even run alongside a video of American elite-level  marathoner Ryan Hall.

Reports MediaPost:

During the ceremony, awards judge Tony Jarvis, creative director of Olympic Media Consulting, said the “Best in Show” was an especially difficult decision this year, because the judges were split over several other excellent category winners, especially Pearl Media’s “World’s Largest Claw Game” execution for Chevrolet, which took top honors in the “Most Innovative Technology/Platform” category. The campaign, which utilized an interactive 3D projection technology enabled pedestrians to interact with a virtual giant claw to grab and draw real prizes, including a Chevrolet car.

Pearl Media was also a winner in the “Best Branding Campaign” category for its “Simply Perfect” campaign for Patron Tequila featuring live artists creating art in a storefront window that pedestrians could interact with and even bid for works of art during a simultaneous auction on eBay.
