NowThis, Twitch and Code and Theory win at the Digiday Fall Awards Gala

NowThis, Twitch, Code and Theory, Group SJR and Salesforce are among the winners emerging from the Digiday Fall Awards Gala, which was attended by Turner, Dow Jones, MailChimp and CBS Interactive, all of whom were finalists. The event, which recognized work across the Digiday Awards, Digiday Technology Awards and Digiday Worklife Awards, was held at The Lighthouse at Chelsea Piers in New York City.

Mobile news publisher NowThis, part of the Group Nine family of media brands, is this year’s winner for Most Innovative Publisher under the Digiday Awards. The seven-year-old digital publisher now reaches over 115 million people per month in the U.S. alone, 60% of whom are millennials. This is, in part, due to an increased number of conversations with newsmakers ranging from Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to Robert De Niro to RuPaul. Also winning a Digiday Award is Code and Theory. Work on behalf of brands like CNN, Nasdaq, Adidas and J.P. Morgan Chase has landed the New York City-based group Creative Agency of the Year.

Amazon-owned Twitch was named Best Video Marketing and Advertising Platform under the Digiday Technology Awards. The streaming service teamed up with Reese’s to create an experience that allowed users to simulate an Easter Egg hunt across five sponsored influencer streams. Also winning a Digiday Technology Award is Salesforce Marketing Cloud, which was named Best Marketing Automation Platform.

Taking home the Digiday Worklife Award for Most Innovative Culture, which is awarded to the company whose culture best fosters unique, original and successful thinking demonstrated by tangible results, is Group SJR. The idea-obsessed marketing consultancy focuses its efforts on ideas, not hierarchy.
