UrbanDaddy Wins Best In Show at Digiday Publishing Awards
This highly targeted national campaign was created by UrbanDaddy for client MINI Cooper USA and showcased the the new MINI Paceman in its natural environment: the city at night.
With “MINI Night Out,” UrbanDaddy created “the first ever luxury nightlife chauffeur and concierge service” as regular people were taken on exclusive nightlife adventures in Chicago, San Francisco, Miami and New York City. Guests signed up in advance to hop from club to club selected by UrbanDaddy, take photos and post their experiences to social media. UrbanDaddy also won Best Advertising Innovation by a Publisher for MINI Night Out.
AskMen won Best Design for its website, Business Insider grabbed Best Editorial Achievement by a Publisher for “The Truth About Marissa Mayer: An Unauthorized Biography,” and The Onion captured first in Best Use of Social Media by a Publisher for “Diamond Joe Biden.”
Winners of Digiday’s Publishing Awards were selected from 50 finalists across 12 categories, ranging from Best Branded Content Integration by a Publisher to Best Monetization technology for a Publisher. Judges — selected from the staffs of Quartz, Condé Nast, kbs+ Content Labs, Philadelphia magazine, Thought Catalog, Code and Theory, Kettle — had a highly competitive set of submissions to sift through.
