Last night was the BIMA AGM and the official announcement of the shortlist for the 2011 BIMA Awards. It was a big night for Kempt, not only did I get re-elected back on to the BIMA Exec (a role that I'm hugely proud of holding and therefore I'm hugely grateful to the membership for allowing me to retain) but also I'm hugely pleased to announce that Kempt have appear to have done rather well in the BIMA awards this year. Our smash hit iOS/Social Game - Red Bull - Kart Fighter which we released in June has been nominated no less than five categories!
The categories concerned are: Advertising, Consumer Goods & Services, Engagement, Content & Blogging, Multi-Platform, Social Media, Viral & PR. To say that we were chuffed with this would be the understatement of the decade, we all worked stupidly hard on the campaign and so this recognition means the world to all of us. We're also hugely grateful to our amazing clients at Red Bull for giving us the opportunity to work on the project.
I do have to confess to a degree of discomfort in making this announcement - given my involvement with BIMA and the fuss I've made over the last few years about ensuring the awards were as fair and impartial as possible - but I totally didn't rig it honest!
Anyway, there are loads of fantastic projects nominated this year so, if you're interested, you can see the full shortlist over on the BIMA awards site. The awards themselves are on the 10th Nov at Fabric London, wish us luck and hope to see you there!
