NEW YORK, NY (August 10, 2015) — Creative ingenuity and effective execution defines the shortlist finalists for the 11th annual IAB MIXX Awards, revealed today by the Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB). The roster of 121 select campaigns from 10 countries highlights best-in-class digital marketing that exemplifies what works across multiple interactive screens today, and signals what the future holds for the digital advertising landscape.

Michael Lebowitz, Founder and CEO of Big Spaceship, is serving as the chair for the 2015 IAB MIXX Awards, and winners will be selected by a cross-industry panel of 38 judges, featuring renowned agency creative luminaries, brand marketing powerhouses, and blue-chip publishers.

“This year’s nominees exemplify the best and the brightest across digital today – shining a spotlight on new technology, strong strategy and creative uses of data,” said Lebowitz. “Each of the finalists showcased a keen understanding of today’s digitally-focused consumer and took advantage of the deep experiences that can only be fully realized through an interactive medium.”

“The IAB MIXX Awards recognizes the game changers in interactive advertising – those who redefine creativity and innovation for our ever-evolving industry,” said David Doty, Executive Vice President and CMO, IAB. “This list of finalists celebrates visionary work that offers deep insights into how interactive marketing can excel in capturing consumers’ attention around the globe through the use of everything from mobile and video to data and multiple technologies.”

The finalists and winners will be honored this year at the 11th annual IAB MIXX Awards show, a dinner reception and celebration that is the culmination of the preeminent two-day IAB MIXX Conference held during Advertising Week in New York City. The 2015 event will take place at Tao Downtown on Tuesday, September 29.
