Pereira & O’Dell Leads Digiday Video Awards Finalists

Pereira & O’Dell is a finalist in six categories, based on four different campaigns for the Digiday Video Awards, which recognize excellence and breakthrough achievement in video, advertising and marketing.

The San Francisco agency landed finalist nods for its work on four different campaigns with Skype, Ad Council, Toshiba and realtor.com. CBS was recognized in three categories: “Best In-Banner Video Ad,” “Best Original Non-Scripted Video Show/Series” and “Best Video Destination – Entertainment.” Three others are also up for the award in three categories: Public relations and marketing shop Pmk*Bnc, production company B-Reel and video marketing company TubeMogul.

With 18 categories ranging from “Best Original Scripted Series” to “Best Video Ad Network,” our judges had their work cut out for them. The Video Awards judges came from Bleacher Report, kbs+, Iris Worldwide, Rokkan, Digitas, Saatchi & Saatchi and more. For a full list of our judges and information on judging criteria, see here.

This year we’ve added a “Best in Show” award. The full list of finalists is available on the Digiday Video Awards site and listed below. Check out a Digiday-produced compilation of finalists’ creative.
