New York-based social engagement agency SS + K’s work with Obama for America was recognized in four categories for two campaigns. The “For All” campaign is a finalist in the “Best Social Engagement Campaign” and “Best Social Creative,” the “First Time” campaign was recognized in “Best Branded Viral Video” and both campaigns emerged as finalists in “Best Use of Social Media for a Cause.”
OMD had its hand in three different finalist campaigns, for work with Visa, Pepsi and Intel. Glamour Magazine’s partnership with Wildfire by Google is up for the award in both “Best Branded Social Community” and “Best Social Media Platform Innovation.” Finally, both Definition6 and PHD had successful partnerships with HBO on campaigns for “Game of Thrones” and “Trueblood,” respectively.
