Press release from: NuZoo Media, Inc.

Chicago, IL, Nov. 25, 2008 – Interactive company NuZoo Media has won a Silver International Davey Award for the inventive tourism video “Just Beyond the City Limits,” produced for the Chicago Southland Convention & Visitors Bureau. This is the third straight year NuZoo has been honored with a Davey Award.

The Davey Awards exclusively honor the “Davids” of creativity, the finest small firms, agencies and companies in the world. The Davey Awards is the leading awards competition specifically for smaller firms, where firms compete with their peers to win the recognition they deserve.

“It’s thrilling to be recognized by the Davey’s,” said NuZoo president Dan Pulik. “The team works hard to produce excellence for our clients, and it’s gratifying to be awarded this honor, especially when the competition is so tough.”

The Davey’s received more than 4,000 entries from across the U.S. and around the world encompassing video, interactive multimedia, integrated and multimedia campaigns, marketing effectiveness, web sites, radio, advertising, print and collateral.

The Awards are judged and overseen by the International Academy of the Visual Arts (IAVA), an invitation-only member-based organization of leading professionals from various disciplines of the visual arts. Entries are judged to evaluate distinction in creative work.

The 10-minute video was produced to promote tourism in the Chicago Southland, promote the 61 communities that make up the Southland, and prompt consideration of the Southland as an alternative to Chicago and other cities for a wide range of year-round events. It plays at several Illinois highway oases, is distributed via direct mail in marketing campaigns, and a shortened version is shown online.

NuZoo’s strategy was to provide 5 2-minute videos separated by special effects because the primary target audience would only be stopping briefly at the oases and would have limited time and attention spans. Showcased within each segment are categories including professional sports, dining, festivals, entertainment venues, and convention capabilities.

A ticker runs at the bottom with events information and the CVB’s URL to show specific events, promote year-round events, and provide easy to remember information without the need of the accompanying audio.

The special effects were created to show the proximity to Chicago and brand the video with the CVB’s logo and tagline.
