Howell, Liberatore & Associates Wins Three Silver AIVA Awards

January 4, 2017 (Elmira, NY) - Howell Liberatore & Associates, Inc. (HLA), is proud to announce that we were recently awarded three silver industry awards: a W3 Award for our production of the Schuyler County Transportation Link Line video, and two silver Davey Awards for The Roper Center for Public Opinion Research (Cornell University) Tradeshow Display and the Transportation Link Line video.

The W3 Awards honor the power of web creativity and excellence, and recognize the people behind award-winning sites, marketing programs, social content, mobile site/apps, and online video. In its eleventh year, the W3 Awards received over 5,000 entries.

The Davey Awards honor small agencies with big ideas rather than large budgets. The 2016 Davey Awards received nearly 4,000 entries from ad agencies, interactive agencies, production firms, in-house creative professionals, graphic designers, design firms and public relations firms. Both the W3 and Davey Awards are sanctioned and judged by the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts (AIVA).

“We are extremely pleased to have won three prestigious awards this year out of so many other worthy entries,” states Eiron Smith, president of HLA. “I’m very proud of our small team of incredibly talented professionals who put this kind of creative, out-of-the-box thinking into every project we do.”

The Schuyler County Transportation Link Line video was created to help the people of Schuyler and neighboring communities understand the different transportation solutions that Schuyler County offers by creating an interactive, educational and fun video.

The Roper Center Trade Show materials were designed and produced in a simple but sophisticated way to make it easier for the Roper Center to showcase their organization at trade shows.

“We were once gain blown away at the creativity and quality of this year’s entrants. As our connected world continues to expand in new and exciting ways, our winners are a true testament to the power of Web creativity around the globe.” Said Linda Day, the director of the IAVA.
