Vienna, 15.11.2019. This year the Technisches Museum in Vienna provided the intriguing and inspiring setting for the showcasing and award presentation of the 19th Golden Pixel Awards. Around 220 guests were immersed in pixel fever and viewed the best projects of the past 12 months in 16 categories. Gewista was there and was able to win in one category, but also scoop an overall victory!
The search for the best
This year, the Golden Pixel-Team was inspired once again by wonderful presentations. 164 projects were submitted, all of them displaying a tremendous level of creativity and execution. As in every year, the projects that made the short list were presented in the form of an exhibition prior to the award ceremony. The expert audience was visibly impressed by the presentations. Golden Pixel moderator Thomas Rottenberg was there for the third time and conducted the evening entertainingly and with humour. The event organisers Dr. Werner Sobotka (VFG) and Michael Seidl (EMGroup) welcomed the guests and gave an insight into the process of the Golden Pixel Awards.
The Golden Pixel Awards and categories
The Golden Pixel Awards were created to show the vibrancy and value of print. This year the entrants have succeeded most impressively in this regard. “We saw projects with a definite “Wow” factor at the jury meeting. In some categories it was not easy at all to identify the winner from the multitude of superb presentations”, said Michael Seidl of the EMGroup GmbH, who publish two of the leading industry magazines PRINT & PUBLISHING and PACKAGING Austria.
Victory in the category “Billboard & visual communication” & Golden Pixel Trophy Nr. 10 for Gewista
The overall winner was again chosen from all category winners this year. The Golden Pixel Trophy, a roaming statue that is passed onto the new overall winner each year went to the “Römerquelle Recycling-Held” project, submitted by Gewista Werbegesellschaft m.b.H, with the client Römerquelle Trading GmbH, the agency being MediaCom. The jury commented on the project as follows: “A real attention-getter! Entertainment and the involvement of passers-by in recycling and demonstrating amusingly how to implement a concept perfectly with diverse options. This campaign could not be crowned with a laurel wreath, but certainly with the Golden Pixel Award.”
Networking between old locomotives
For the winners, the traditional group photo again followed the awarding of the Golden Pixel Trophy. Afterwards the culinary voyage of discovery began in the form of the Golden Pixel buffet. The Golden Pixel Gala Evening is a popular networking event and many guests took advantage of this opportunity until late into the evening, while enjoying the musical accompaniment of the wonderful band Music Deluxe.
