Flip Media dominates the interactive category at the 2008 Dubai Lynx Awards

Flip Media dominated the Interactive category of the 2nd Dubai Lynx Awards, the leading creative advertising competition for the Middle East and North Africa, bagging 4 of the 15 awards. Flip Media’s work for Emaar’s Burj Dubai garnered a Silver, while their work for Nakheel’s Ramadan campaign, MBC2’s Movies in Motion portal and the experimental website “My City Soul” earned three bronzes, giving Flip the highest tally of any agency in the Middle East.

According to Regional Account Director Yousef Tuqan Tuqan, these awards validate Flip’s approach to their work. “We’re extremely pleased by our recognition in these awards. Flip has always placed a premium on the development of solid creative work that delivers on our client’s business objectives, and it’s great to win creative awards for sites that are commercially focused.”

Flip Media is no stranger to creative awards, having been the first Middle Eastern agency to earn the coveted Macromedia Site of The Day, as well as 35 other awards in the last few years, including four Summit International Awards and a Cannes Cyberlion.

According to Tuqan, “All our awards this year have one thing in common, which is that they were the product of a lot of teamwork and thinking with our clients. Far from being considered a ‘fifth wheel’ on our client’s agency rosters, we are now being engaged as an integral part of the communications plan, and it shows in the depth and quality of thinking behind our award-winning sites.”

Dinesh Lalvani, Group Creative Director at Flip says “we had hoped for a Gold award for some of our stronger entries, but we are honored to have had so much of our work awarded. We’re very impressed by the quality of the judges and of the other awarded entires, and are pleased to see that Interactive work is being given the attention and respect it deserves in such a prestigious festival. We have some great work in the pipeline for 2008, and we look forward to an even stronger showing in future editions of the Lynx. ”
