Attend the Kelly Awards in your Pajamas!

Magazine Publishers of America (MPA) is reinventing one of its most notable programs--the Kelly Awards--as a virtual awards show presented exclusively online.

The winners of the 26th Annual Kelly Awards, which award creative excellence and effectiveness using magazines, will be announced online beginning Wednesday, June 13. Created with Visual Mercenary of New York, New York, the microsite will feature an animated host, interactive gallery, commentary from judges and finalists, and even an exclusive after-party--complete with bouncer. Finalists for this year's Kelly Awards have been announced and are listed below the fold.

"For more than a quarter of century the Kelly Awards have stood for creativity and we feel that the new online event will reflect the originality, flair and cleverness that is characteristic of great magazine advertising," said Ellen Oppenheim, Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer of the MPA. "Additionally, because we empathize with everyone's busy schedules, we decided to show appreciation for the industry's work while giving attendees an entertaining and time-saving way to share in the celebration of the Kelly Awards. An inventive digital platform enables us to reach an even broader audience."

Added Ms. Oppenheim, "Many of the agencies in competition for the Kelly Awards, including past winners Crispin Porter + Bogusky in Miami and Fallon in Minneapolis – as well as several judges – are not based in New York, where the awards are traditionally held, and being away from the office for even a couple of days can be tough. Our new approach will make it easier for everyone to appreciate and participate in the Kelly Awards when it works best for them."
