Gulf Broadcast (GB), an innovative film, video and new media production company based in Bahrain, won the ‘Advertising’ segment of the Strategic Video Awards (SVA) for the ‘Harmony of Nature’ villa production developed for Riffa Views.
The SVA program is sponsored by McMurry, one of the largest marketing communications firms in the USA. Currently in their second year, the SVA received double the entries with participants including Monsanto, Nationwide Insurance, Pfizer, Peabody Energy and the American Bar Association; in addition to GB from Bahrain, which was announced winner in the Advertising segment of the Awards.
Commenting on the occasion, Mahmood Al-Yousif, CEO and founder of GB said: “We are thrilled to receive this recognition from industry luminaries. This encourages us to continue in our quest to champion better visual communications locally and internationally by setting successful examples and demonstrating to our clients our team’s creativity and dedication”.
“We would like to thank Riffa Views, our pioneering client, whose leadership and vision allowed them to embrace and adopt our suggestions as their main communication strategy which resulted in a multiple award winning website along with this Award.”
Karla Solano, Riffa Views’ Head of Marketing and PR commented: “Following the recent Award presented to Riffa Views for ‘Best Developer Website’, also developed by GB, in the Bloomberg Arabia International Property Awards, we are pleased that Bahrain’s talent was recognized, yet again, internationally.
Through their wealth of experience in emerging communications and social media platforms, GB was able to translate Riffa Views corporate vision to reality by creating innovative communication platforms.”
“The number of entries we received proves what we already know: Organizations of all kinds are turning to video as a compelling way to communicate,” says David Murray, awards program director. “But more importantly, the quality of the entries shows that they’re doing a better job across the board.”
The entries were judged by 13 communication industry experts who filtered out entries in 35 categories in every area of external and internal communications. The winners provided stellar examples of why video is increasingly becoming a preferable choice for professional communicators. The 16 winners were chosen this year with ten honourable mentions showcase the increasingly varied and unique ways organizations can use video to communicate with stakeholders.
