"The Davey Awards' mission of highlighting small but hugely creative companies strikes close to home for us—P6 has never let itself be limited by its stature, and indeed we pride ourselves on being more nimble, versatile, and innovative than companies twice our size," explains Project6 Founder and President Esten Sesto. "It's a particular honor to be recognized by the AIVA, which represents such a diverse cross-section of the industry's most inventive companies." The AIVA's current invite-only membership includes frontrunners of media, advertising, and marketing including Code and Theory, Condé Nast, Disney, GE, Johns Hopkins Medicine, Microsoft, Tinder, MTV, Push., Publicis, Sesame Workshops, The Marketing Store, Worktank, Yahoo!, and many others.
Entries to the Davey Awards are judged on their merits based on a standard of excellence set forth by the AIVA for each category. Categories may have multiple Gold and Silver winners, or they may have none—regardless, no more than 10% of entries are awarded Gold Davey (i.e. a rating of over 90 on a 100-point scale determined by the judges). Project6 received a Silver Davey for Alteryx.com, the official website for Alteryx, Inc., revolutionizing data science and analytics with customers including, Audi, Kroger, Ford, Unilever and Vodafone.
"This season of the Daveys has once again put the outstanding work that comes from small shops across the globe on display. We are proud to showcase those who utilize flawless execution, groundbreaking technology, and a fresh approach to the thought process to generate amazing content,” noted Derek Howard, Executive Director of the AIVA. Project6's honors this year reaffirm its status as a world-class design and development firm that delivers thoughtful, pioneering work for its diverse roster of clients. Project6's 2018 awards join the firm's already-impressive list of honors, including 18 prior Davey Awards. In addition, during its 17 years in business, Project6 has been honored with 79 awards of distinction (and counting).
About the Davey Awards
The Davey Awards is an international creative award focused exclusively on honoring outstanding creative work from the best small shops worldwide. The 14th Annual Davey Awards received 3,000 entries from ad agencies, interactive agencies, production firms, in-house creative professionals, graphic designers, design firms and public relations firms. David defeated the mighty Goliath with a big idea and a little rock. That is the sort of thing small agencies do every day. The Davey Awards honors the achievement of the "Creative Davids" where strength comes from ideas, intelligence and out-of-the-box thinking, not a "Giant's" bankroll. Great work is about fresh ideas and exceptional execution, not the biggest budgets. The Davey levels the playing field so entrants compete with only their peers and can win the recognition they deserve.
