Mercy media house wins prestigious awards

Mercy Sisters owned media agency Fraynework has taken out a series of prizes at a leading international interactive media awards competition.

The Horizon Interactive Awards, a leading international interactive media awards competition, announced the 2007 award winners.

According to a statement from Fraynework, the sixth annual international competition recognised excellence in interactive media production among multi-media developers worldwide.

Fraynework was recognised for their excellence in all four of their entries in the video and interactive media productions with one Gold award and three Bronze awards.

The awards include a gold medal in the video/short film category for a DVD the agency produced for the Mercy Sisters' health and aged care services, and bronze medals for its weekly e-newsletter Mercy E-News, a documentary of Papua New Guinea, and a self-promotion DVD.

Fraynework Manager Anne Walsh said: "We are delighted at the public recognition these Mercy projects have received and which we have the pleasure of producing across the Mercy world.

"They tell important stories about people trying to make a difference in other lives. The Horizon Awards draw attention not just to the quality of the work but to the values of compassion and justice these stories hold," she said.

The 2007 competition saw nearly 1,000 entries from 24 countries around the world. An international panel of judges, consisting of industry professionals with diverse backgrounds, evaluated 19 different categories ranging from online advertising to video games.

The 2007 winning entries showcase the best-developed interactive media solutions including web sites, CDs and DVDs, online ads, video and more.

According to Mike Sauce, founder of the Horizon Awards, the 2007 competition was a fantastic display of creativity and effective communication blended with technical excellence.
