UrbanDaddy took home Best in Show for its “MINI Night Out” campaign at last night’s fourth annual Digiday Publishing Awards gala.

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.

Other Digiday Pubishing Award winners include The Huffington Post, which took home Best Content Marketing Program for Chipotle Food for Thought and AOL for MAKERS in Best Use of Video by a Publisher.

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.”

Other notable winners include Quartz for Chartbuilder in the Best Publishing Technology Innovation category and Gravity for Most Disruptive Publishing Technology.
