Judging has been completed for our submissions to the 7th Annual Davey Awards, and we’re excited to let you know that our Grocery Shopping Tour has been selected by The International Academy of Visual Arts to receive a 2011 Davey Award.

Current membership represents a “Who’s Who” of acclaimed media, advertising, and marketing ﬁrms including: Conde Nast, Coach, Disney, The Ellen Degeneres Show, Estee Lauder, HBO, Monster.com, MTV, Polo Ralph Lauren, Sotheby’s Institute of Art, Victoria’s Secret, Wired, Yahoo! and many others. See www.iavisarts.org for more information.
Judging and Awarding:
Entries are judged to evaluate distinction in creative work. In determining Gold and Silver winners, entries are judged on their merits based on a standard of excellence as determined by the IAVA, considering the category entered. A category may have multiple Gold and Silver Winners, or may have none. Entries are scored on a ten point scale by the judges. Generally, Gold Winners receive a score of 9.0 or above and Silver Winners receive a score of 7.0 to 8.9. No more than 10% of entries will be awarded a Gold Davey. Best in Show selections are made by the Academy, from the pool of Gold Winners, based on their scoring and other elements of merit as determined by the Academy. The judges will award 11 Best in Show honors, one for each medium. Please visit www.daveyawards.com for a complete list of winners.
