McCann Systems won the the APEX Installation of the Year, which I totally agree with, and and bluemedia won APEX Content of the Year awards, which I totally didn’t.
I was a judge. Some of the awards, frankly, were all about big budgets and big wow eye candy stuff. Projecting on water vapour is cool, but the content was pretty darn pedestrian when compared to some other work.
That said, there were nine judges and they settled on these. I think my top choices lined up with about half of those selected.
