The winners of the 13th Annual Davey Awards have been announced by the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts, and Ascedia is proud to be part of the list, winning a Silver Award for the mobile app we developed for the Aircraft Owners and Pilot’s Association (AOPA).
With nearly 4,000 entries from across the US and around the world, the Davey Awards honor the finest creative work from the best small agencies, firms, and companies worldwide. The Davey Awards is judged and overseen by the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts (AIVA), a 700+ member organization of leading professionals from various disciplines of the visual arts dedicated to embracing progress and the evolving nature of traditional and interactive media.
Current membership represents a "Who's Who" of acclaimed media, advertising, and marketing firms including: Code and Theory, Condé Nast, Disney, GE, Keller Crescent, Microsoft, Monster.com, MTV, Push., Publicis, Sesame Workshops, The Marketing Store, Your Majesty, Yahoo!, and many others.

“The agencies awarded this season truly reflect the notion that small agencies produce big ideas. The work entered into this year's Daveys portrays the smart approach to creativity that embodies the capabilities and talents of small firms from across the world,” said Derek Howard, Executive Director of the AIVA. “On behalf of the Davey Awards and our Academy, we want to applaud this year’s entrants for their dedication and commitment to their craft. We offer our congratulations once again to those selected as winners for the exceptional work they submitted.”
Ascedia’s work with AOPA is part of the agency’s growing emphasis on mobile app and immersive technology development. The AOPA app was designed as a place for members to connect and experience a wide variety of content, while also providing access to up-to-the-minute flight restriction alerts. Ascedia’s user experience (UX) experts provided guidance on features and flow and worked with AOPA’s team to develop an app that aligned with the organization’s original vision.
"AOPA's vision to utilize their website content and redeliver it in a mobile application sparked Ascedia's team to develop this innovative app," said Anne Burdge, Account Supervisor. "Together, our teams created a great tool for users to view and engage with AOPA’s abundant content. This award is a testament to the collaborative user experience and design approach Ascedia took with AOPA, as well as the industry-leading technology methods we use to ensure end users have a positive mobile application experience."
