The Adrian Awards recognize outstanding travel marketing achievements in advertising, digital marketing and public relations. New entry categories this year include: Digital Marketing - Website User Experience; Digital Marketing - App User Experience; Public Relations - Blog.
"We are always impressed at the creativity of the advertising, digital marketing and public relations campaigns in our industry, and we really look forward to honoring that work each year through the Adrian Awards," said Robert A. Gilbert, CHME, CHBA, president and CEO of HSMAI.
"This year we wanted to showcase the power of storytelling and innovation in customer user experiences. Our theme, Adrian in Wonderland, challenges the industry to show us the story of their journey in this year's creative work to bring customers to their city, hotel, resort, cruise line, restaurant, museum -- their Wonderland," added Fran Brasseux, CHSE, CHBA, executive vice president, HSMAI.
Gold, Silver and Bronze prizes will be awarded in all categories in Advertising, Digital Marketing and Public Relations. Platinum winners are selected as the most extraordinary entrants from the field of Gold winners, and the highest distinction - "Best of Show" - is granted to the top Platinum winners.
In addition, Benefactor Awards are presented at the gala, and this year, a new award enters the mix, the Yahoo! Yodeler of the Year Award. Presented by Yahoo and tumblr, the award recognizes thought leadership in online storytelling measured by the guest's journey of web-based inspiration, engagement, perception, and conversion. Candidates will be judged on their storytelling strategies in content marketing, native advertising, and online blogging.
Other Benefactor Awards include:
