AMCP, the governing body for the annual Hermes Creative Awards program, has announced that IDIS, South Korea’s largest in-country surveillance technology manufacturer--alongside strategic communications partners Bryant Zamberlan Group and TMF Marketing—is a 2018 recipient of the program’s highest level honour, the Platinum Hermes Creative Award, for the planning, design, and global execution of the company’s year-long 20th Anniversary strategic program.

The honour recognises all aspects and stages of the now-completed program, including all results documented and available at the time of submission. The 2018 Platinum award represents back-to-back successes for the IDIS team, who also took home 2017 Platinum honours for the earliest multi-media aspects of the anniversary program.

IDIS’s Platinum-award winning ‘Two Decades of Innovation’ strategic program was a year-long recognition of the company’s 20 years in the security and surveillance industry

Highlighting IDIS’s contributions and innovations

The Hermes Creative Awards program is one of the industry’s oldest and most respected programs, evaluating strategic, communications, and marketing efforts for more than 20 years through a highly-controlled awards competition, judged by fellow industry professionals who, over the program’s lifetime have cumulatively evaluated more than 200,000 entries submitted in more than 100 countries. In 2018, the program received greater than 6,500 entries, from which the limited winners slate was determined.

IDIS’s Platinum-award winning ‘Two Decades of Innovation’ strategic program was a year-long recognition of the company’s 20 years in the security and surveillance industry, and highlighted both IDIS industry contributions and milestones, as well as current IDIS technological innovation. The program included a mix of live events, including informative presentations and celebrations, a corporate awards-program recognising partners, customers, and media organisations who’d figured prominently in the manufacturer’s 20-year history.

These activities were accompanied by a comprehensive multi-media (including web, graphic, physical, and video elements) campaign designed support and spotlight technology, partners, and customers, while sharing highlights of the IDIS journey.

For the 20th Anniversary celebration, IDIS leadership worked closely with R&D, technical, sales, and marketing/PR teams to craft a comprehensive, thoughtful, and informative strategic program"

Program showcasing IDIS’s longevity

Keith Drummond, Senior Director of IDIS America, reacted to news of the company’s second Platinum honour in as many years, “The IDIS 20th Anniversary was a milestone of exceptional importance for the company, our partners, and customers. Formally reflecting on a year-long theme, ‘Two Decades of Innovation,’ really gave us the platform to speak to the company’s longevity, history of technological leadership, and commitment to market driven innovation. It was also a chance to tell the IDIS story to those whose first introduction to the company began with the launch and expansion of our brand business in 2013.

For the 20th Anniversary celebration, IDIS leadership worked closely with R&D, technical, sales, and marketing/PR teams around the world to craft a comprehensive, thoughtful, and informative strategic program. These both told the IDIS story and celebrated the partners and customers so instrumental along the way. I am thrilled to see this second, back-to-back honour in recognition of the hard work put in by the IDIS team, BZ, and TMF and the contributions of the entire worldwide IDIS family.
