EPrize Honored with 2011 Communicator Award for Creative Excellence: Pleasant Ridge-based interactive promotions provider ePrize has been honored by the International Academy of Visual Arts with a 2011 Communicator Award, recognizing the company’s creative excellence in the Interactive category. In its 17th year, the awards receive more than 9,000 entries annually in six categories — audio, integrated campaigns, interactive, marketing effectiveness, print and video. As a recipient in the interactive discipline, ePrize received an Award of Excellence, the awards’ highest level of distinction. EPrize’s recent campaign on behalf of workwear manufacturer Carhartt was the focus of the entry, which leveraged tiered incentives to showcase Carhartt product lines to workers. The Communicator Awards are judged and overseen by IAVA, an organization with more than 550 members who represent various disciplines of the visual arts and are dedicated to embracing progress and the evolving nature of traditional and interactive media.
