The Out of Home award presented annually by Gewista for Out of Home creations in Austria was bestowed on 8 May 2019 at the Gösserhalle.
It was the 19th time that the Out of Home award for outstanding creative accomplishments in the Austrian advertising industry was presented. The formal award ceremony for creative subjects in the Billboard, City Light, Rolling Board, Digital Media, Transport Media, Megaboard and Innovative & Ambient Media categories was held at the Gösserhalle.
The guests were greeted by Gewista CEO Franz Solta and Gewista CSO Andrea Groh, who were also the joint hosts for the evening. The winners and guests were regaled with culinary delicacies accentuated by the evening’s main act, the Hermes House Band and Turntable Sounds by DJ Thomas.
The highlight of the evening, to which winners, clients and their agents were invited, was the presentation of the 2018 Out of Home awards, with seven categories in gold, silver and bronze. From the classic Billboard, to Transport Media to Digital Media, the most creative campaigns and subjects were chosen in advance by a first-rate panel of specialists.
Gewista CSO Andrea Groh on the judging for the subjects and the successful awards ceremony: “It was a pleasant task again this year to select the winner of this year’s Out of Home award from the approximately 4,500 subjects of the previous year. In awarding this prize, we honour outstanding accomplishments that are produced within the Austrian advertising and creative industry for Out of Home advertisements every year. The glamorous gala evening at the Gösserhalle also provides a perfect chance for us to thank our customers for their great cooperation!”
“It is really impressive,” says Gewista CEO Franz Solta, “how many works there were to evaluate and above all, how exceptionally creative they were in the 19th year of the “Out of Home Award”’s existence. This shows that the award enjoys a great deal of popularity and is a high priority among agencies and advertisers alike. Out of Home media - from posters, to Transport Media to DOOH - represents unique design possibilities that provide perfect opportunities for creative thinkers, and it was a joy to have the privilege of awarding prizes for the best subjects.”
