98FM’s Best of Dublin Awards is an annual event to celebrate the people and businesses of Dublin.
The awards allow the public to nominate their favourites across 20 or so categories, ranging from Best Chicken Wings to Best Taxi Driver.
I was the digital designer on the campaign for 2016 & 2017. The campaign required digital display ads, as well as a designated page to accept nominations and votes, based on the overall event branding.
The awards ceremony takes place in a different venue each year, and each year requires a large production. As the digital designer I created all branding and assets for the many screens in these venues.
Once the awards begin, the screens are used as an integral part of the show. For each category the nominees are announced using stings, as seen here:
The MC announces the winner which is the queue for the AV team to switch to another video showing the winners name on screen, and this continues to play as they accept the award. A shortened example can be seen here:
