Snap 2021 Virtual Awards Event
On Thursday March 11, SNAP presented 'REIGNITE' - the 2021 Virtual Awards Event. The event recognised the achievements of the Snap Print & Design network, celebrating in particular the winners of twelve award categories. Finalists and award winners were announced via live-broadcast from studios in Sydney, with live-crosses to Snap Centres across Australia throughout the proceedings. Pre-recorded videos invited the Snap network to 'REFLECT' on its journey over the past few years, and to 'REIMAGINE' the brand and business into the future.
Here are some highlights from the event.
'REIGNITE' Event Invitations
While the initial 'Save the Date' advice was communicated via email, the event invitation which followed showcased how great design and speciality print finishing can be employed for maximum impact and engagement.
'REIGNITE' Party Pack
In the lead-up to the event, 'REIGNITE PARTY PACKS' were delivered to Snap Print & Design Centres across Australia, to help get preparations for the celebrations underway.
Containing goodies such a sparkling wine, party snacks, novelty party props, coasters, badges and even a scented candle, the REIGNITE Party Packs showcased how design and print can be used to strengthen engagement, particularly important for 'virtual events'.
Setting up the Live-Broadcast Studio with Signage
Rather than just the standard black drapes behind the presenters, the live-broadcast studio was transformed with printed themed media walls, topped off with lectern signage.
