LEEDS, England, November 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
Branded3 picked up the Grand Prix award amongst a handful of other prizes at the 2011 Drum Awards for the Digital Industries (the DADIs) at the Royal Armouries in Leeds.
The prestigious event, held at the Royal Armouries in Leeds, saw the biggest names in digital media out in force, with some of the UK heavyweights nominated for several awards. But it was to be Branded3's night as no less than three gongs made the short journey to their offices in Aberford on the outskirts of Leeds.
Branded3 celebrated a year of rapid growth and considerable success at the awards ceremony, with the company's flagship social media campaigning tool Twitition picking up the Grand Prix Award, as well as further trophies for Best In-house Website or Campaign, and Best Use of Social Media.
Headed up by CEO Vin Chinnaraja and Director of Search Patrick Altoft, Branded3 has built an enviable reputation since its inception in 2003. Working with global brands like BMW, Malaysia Airlines, and EMI, Branded3 has proven itself capable of competing with the world's best in SEO, social media, web design and digital development.
The trio of DADI awards is the latest in a string of successes for Branded3, which won Bronze at the 2011 Digital Impact awards for its work with Interflora, and Silver at the same event for Twitition.
Branded3 has won awards in the past for its innovative digital solutions, picking up a GoldenTwit prize in 2010 for Competwition, and the SEO industry looks to Patrick Altoft's blog, Blogstorm, as an industry standard bearer.
In the last 12 months, the company has grown considerably and is looking forward to further expansion in 2012 as it continues to deliver top Google rankings in some of the most competitive industries in search, while producing market-leading web design and development work.
Vin Chinnaraja reflected on a dream evening for his firm, saying: "We could not be prouder to win the Grand Prix Award and I am delighted for everyone at the company.
"The digital marketing landscape is getting more and more competitive by the day and it has been an incredibly challenging year. But we are enjoying the challenge and we hope that this award will help us to push on even further in the New Year."
Patrick Altoft said: "We are just as passionate about social media as we are about search, design and digital development, so it is great to gain recognition from our peers in the industry. We're very proud of the work we've done over the last year, and the development of Twitition has helped us contribute something that we believe is a truly valuable, powerful web resource. We believe in the power of social media to spread messages around the world and we are always coming up with new ideas to help people do just that."
He added: "Things never stay still for a second in digital media, so we won't be resting on our laurels. We know we're up against some tremendous competition so we'll have to work doubly hard if we're to win this award again next year."
