Two ‘Best in Category’ Horizon Awards
The Olympique de Marseille football team website received praise for its immersive design and rich user experience: visitors can dive in the club’s news, rich history and community, fan clubs and foundation.
Swedish Bank SBAB won ‘Best in Category Viral Video’, reaching 5.5 million online views and massive social media buzz with a clip about… real estate financial services. The secret? A white horse, a half-nude comedian and a catchy hip-hop beat!
Excellence in Advocacy and News
The World Press Photo Foundation connects the world to the stories that matter. Emakina took on the foundation’s challenge to build its new website around this vision and promise. The website wins two gold awards, one in the category ‘Advocacy’ and a second in ‘Website news’. The online project embraces the continuous changes in our world, and new developments in the media and technology that have transformed journalism and storytelling.

Leading sneaker store Courir also won gold, for its efficient design and its coherent and complementary online and in-store digital experience, sharing the brand’s #sneakerspirit.
