Far North Queensland Media Awards
At a gala presentation at Paradise Palms in Cairns, Graphically Speaking/Oz-e Commerce Solutions was announced as one of only 3 finalists in 2 different media categories.
The Far North Queensland Media Awards celebrates the achievements of all forms of media providers throughout Far North Queensland. This includes electronic media in the form of radio, television and the internet, as well as the traditional print media which includes newspaper, brochures and other publications. This year the awards received over 200 entries for the different categories.
The judges, sourced from around Australia and renowned in their fields, analysed all the entries to arrive at a short list of the top 3 finalists for each category. At the Awards Ceremony the 3 finalists were announced and displayed on large audio video screens prior to the relevant Award Winners being announced.
"Although we didn't win an Award we were absolutely delighted to be announced as ranking in the top 3 in the two categories of Best Colour Advertisement for any type of publication, as well as Best Internet Website. It's especially rewarding to know that the quality of work we do for our many clients has been recognised to be right up there with the best that is produced anywhere in the Far North." said David Lee, managing director of Graphically Speaking.
The full page advertisement, produced for Paronella Park, published in a high quality hard cover tourist guide was exceptionally noteworthy as this category is extremely highly contested by the many graphic design firms and advertising agencies in the Far North.
The internet website, also for Paronella Park (www.paronellapark.com.au), was the result of Mark and Judy Evans desire to completely update their original website to reflect a more modern style and to be even more comprehensive in it's description of their unique and much celebrated tourist attraction.
This latest recognition of Graphically Speaking's website design abilities follows the Internet Guide Award previously bestowed on the local business by Britannica.com in February this year.
