MEDIA RELEASE – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Boosted website has beaten out stiff global competition and has won the coveted Innovative Technology for Good Citizenship Award, at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Awards.
Congratulations to our Digital Partner NV Interactive who will receive the award at a ceremony in Washington D.C. in July.
This is the third award for Boosted, which has won in the same category with NV Interactive at the Microsoft New Zealand Partner Awards, and received Bronze at the Best Awards for the brand identity created by Strategy Design & Advertising: Auckland.
“It’s incredibly rewarding to have Boosted recognised on the world stage”, said Arts Foundation Executive Director, Simon Bowden. “We congratulate NV as recipients of this latest Award and are proud of our whole team for creating something truly unique”.
Boosted is indeed a team effort, bringing the insights of the Arts Foundation, the combined power of the brand & design from our Creative Partner: Strategy Design & Advertising: Auckland and technical integration & development from our Digital Partner: NV Interactive.
Boosted has successfully raised $325,000 for New Zealand arts projects in its first year of operation, with over 2,500 donations and an impressive success rate of 60%. This amount raised almost doubled the Arts Foundation’s annual budget to support arts projects in New Zealand.
“In partnership with the Arts Foundation, we have been able to develop a dynamic and lively ecosystem of artists and arts lovers who come together to create profound creative experiences. This is a tremendous reward in itself and it is even more gratifying to have our expertise and the result of it recognized on the global stage for innovative use of Microsoft technologies,” says Matt Pickering, NV Interactive Managing Director.
