Mediaura was honored to have been asked to sponsor and attend the 2016 AAF-Louisville Louie Gala this past weekend. This celebratory event is an opportunity for all the advertising and marketing agencies, as well as freelancers, to come together and recognize the excellent work created in 2015. The Louie is the first award that you must receive before your work can be submitted for regional and national awards, which makes winning a Louie award a big step in the right direction.
As a long time supporter of AAF-Louisville and the organization’s mission, we were proud to bring attention and facilitate the voting for the 2016 People’s Choice Award for the second year in a row with our voting app. Our Director of Business Development, Ashley Blakemore is on the Board of Directors for AAF-Louisville and was a committee member for the 2016 Louie Gala, along with our Account Executive Melissa McCarty. They both attended this event.
This year the committee mixed things up by choosing a different venue (The Muhammad Ali Center) and nixing the sit down dinner, putting an emphasis on drinks and tastings with a finger food buffet. The event featured live music, Copper and Kings and Rivulet tastings and a Selma exhibit, with an after party at the Aloft Hotel.
People’s Choice Award Voting App
The AAF-Louisville Louie Gala People’s Choice Award recognizes the best of the best of the Louie award winners. Only select winners are eligible for this prestigious recognition, therefore Mediaura wanted to create a voting method that was as innovative as the nominees. Voting is only open for a brief window of time during the awards presentation, so we had to develop a mobile-friendly method that could be available to attendees and raise awareness prior to voting becoming available to them.
Our designs were created to follow the aesthetic feel of the Louie Gala, and to bring focus to the award itself. Leveraging smartphone technology, Mediaura built the microsite on Flash (a Python framework), incorporating a MySQL database, with hosting on PythonAnywhere for a cloud solution, the Mediaura development team was able to fully-realize the needs of AAF-Louisville within a few days.
The app was a huge success and we are proud of our design and development team for making it happen in such a short amount of time.
