Finalists for the 2010 OMMA Awards were announced this week with ROKKAN representing two major projects, 2K Games and Virgin America v2.0. The OMMA Awards celebrate the year’s best in online media, marketing and advertising through three disciplines across 77 separate categories.
2KGames.com was nominated as a finalist in the Entertainment Gaming category for Website Excellence. Featured in OMMA Magazine’s Creative Roundtable this past June, 2KGames.com was praised as a visually arresting site, considerably ahead of what most gaming publishers are doing with community and social networking. The site serves as a portal for 2K’s growing line of impressive products as well as a destination for gamers to discuss the latest news and hot topics. ROKKAN and 2K Games have worked together on several projects including the award winning game, BioShock.
Also in the race is VirginAmerica v2.0 under Travel and Tourism for Website Excellence. This is ROKKAN’s second recognition for Virgin America by OMMA, running against other travel and tourism websites such as, iCrossing’s Vail.com and Level Studios’ San Luis Obispo Vacations. Virgin America continues to push the envelope in airline booking, creating a minimalistic, altruistic approach to traveling and purchasing tickets. All of the information you need without any of the fuss.
The OMMA Awards is now open for voting, allowing MediaPost members to choose up to three entries for the Member’s Choice Award. To vote for ROKKAN, you can easily sign up and cast your ballot here. Winners will be announced at the awards ceremony on September 27, 2010 at the Hilton New York.
