Third Wave Digital Honored With Best of Show Award by Central Georgia Advertising Federation
Third Wave Digital is pleased to announce their recent recognition by the Central Georgia Advertising Federation as a BEST IN SHOW winner at the 2010 ADDY awards. The award was presented to Third Wave Digital for the design and development of www.commercialdivingacademy.com, a website for Jacksonville-based Commercial Diving Academy (CDA).
For the development of Commercial Diving Academy’s cutting-edge website, Third Wave Digital was honored with the coveted Gold ADDY in the Flash® enabled website category. Awards are presented based on the overall scores from an independent panel of judges. In addition to winning the Gold ADDY, Commercial Diving Academy also received recognition as the single highest scoring entry of this year’s competition. This distinction automatically garnered Third Wave Digital the BEST IN SHOW in the electronic category for the Commercial Diving Academy website.
Arguably one of the advertising industry’s toughest competitions, the ADDY’s represent the spirit of creativity across all types of media. Third Wave Digital and other Gold ADDY winners on the local level now advance to the district competition, where they will compete against 6,343 entries from across the southeast. District winners become national finalists and a final win is considered one of the most prestigious awards in the industry.
Bart Campione, President of Third Wave Digital, commented on the BEST IN SHOW win while attending the recent awards ceremony; “The management team at Commercial Diving Academy wanted to take their website to a new level of marketing expertise and they wanted to create the type of WOW! factor their students will experience while attending the academy. Our team responded with a package of web related services that exceeded the client’s expectations while meeting all of their goals…. To receive an award of this prestige is the icing on the cake!”
Visitors to the new www.commercialdivingacademy.com are immediately immersed in the world of underwater diving thanks to custom graphics, embedded video, Flash® and audio elements. This robust set of components provides users with an interactive, comprehensive experience that showcases information to consider when selecting a diving academy, as well as an online application to get the process started. There are also numerous informational videos, a photo gallery and student profiles to help prospective students learn more about Commercial Diving Academy.
To create the award-winning site, the Third Wave Digital team worked closely with Commercial Diving Academy to develop a sophisticated, user friendly and graphically unique frontend web presence. Backing it all up is Third Wave Digital’s comprehensive Content Management System including e-commerce functionality. Since the launch of the new CDA website, Third Wave Digital has provided complete support, maintenance and hosting.
“Our new site continues to get compliments, said Allen Garber, chief administration officer for CDA. Our prospective students are blown away by not only the look and feel, but also by the ease of navigation. Third Wave Digital made the transition seamless.”
