The winners of this year's prestigious BIMA Awards have been announced at an ceremony that saw 750 top creatives from the UK's digital industries converge on the famous Koko venue in Camden for a night of gongs, music, dancing and networking.
The much coveted Grand Prix went to Philips outstanding Cinema 21:9, a web campaign based around a commercial that pushes The Matrix-style bullet time VFX to its limit. The campaign by Tribal DDB Amsterdam, DDB London and Pool Worldwide also picked up awards in the Microsite, B2C and Motion Graphics categories.
Picking up two gongs a piece were Start Thinking Soldier by Skive and Publicis Modem (Interactive Advertising and Advergames) -- which was also awarded a host of Runners Up prizes -- the BBC iPlayer (Website, and Accessibility and Usability), the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic pilot project Things to Come by Startdotstar Limited (Sound Design and CD Rom, DVD or Interactive TV), and Philips_vs (PR and Outreach).
