The 2011 categories were, for the first time, not divided into those relevant to publishers and agencies.  Instead the 52 categories were broken down into clusters that were open to all.  The reasoning behind the enhanced category system was to extend the awards to a wider range of digital publisher, agencies and brands and to ensure that submissions were evaluated by judges with relevant experience and expertise.

Says Cockcroft: “our restructuring of the category system definitely worked in terms of the number, calibre and variety of entries.  We are looking forward to having even more new entrants next year.”

The 2011 Bookmarks were powered by FNB.  Says Stephen Claassen, FNB’s Provincial Chairman of the Western Cape: “FNB celebrates innovation and we support the digital industry because we love the innovation coming out of it.”

The winners were chosen from over 450 entries and were judged by top industry professionals.
