Mediatel announce Connected Consumer 2015 awards shortlist

Known as ‘The Connies’, the awards are now in their third year and are held in celebration of those pioneering new advertising, technological and commercial opportunities in the connected industry.
Aimed at organisations that are devising and powering connected strategies, the shortlist represents a wide variety of media focused businesses – including media owners, agencies, consultancies and technology providers.
Posterscope and Total Media’s campaign for Lenovo was shortlisted under ‘Best use of Connected Data’ category.
Chaired by media consultant Graham Lovelace, the nominees were placed in the safe hands of a number of hand-picked media experts – including Richard Marks, managing director, Research the Media; Stacey Anklam, vice president of client solutions, AutoGraph inc; Rupert Staines, managing director, RadiumOne; Mark Cross, director, Chartroom; and David Pidgeon, editor, Mediatel Newsline.
Commenting on the shortlist, Lovelace, director at Lovelace Consulting, a convergent media specialist, said: “This year’s Connies are the biggest and best. As the shortlist shows, we had entries from right across the industry, and the judges were impressed with the incredibly high quality.
“It reflects the many ways that ‘connectedness’ is making an impact in the way that media owners, agencies and brands target and reach connected consumers, and how technology breakthroughs are making it all possible.
“There’s plenty to learn from these players, and there’ll be plenty to celebrate at The Connies on April 23!”
This year’s awards will be followed by Mediatel’s annual Connected Consumer Conference in June – an all-day event that will see a number of key industry players discuss and debate the current state of the industry.
