The company P and our last summer’s project Conspiracy For Good brought home two awards at Banff World Media Festival.
First it won it’s category and was named Best Cross Platform Project, and later in the evening was also given one of the main awards of the festival — Best In Interactive.
The reality game was designed by us at The company P with the creator of Heroes Tim Kring, and funded by Nokia. It had lots of videos for which I was the lead writer, four big live events in London, online games, phone games, live actors, and all sorts of strange things that truly made it multi platform!
The 2011 Banff World Media Festival was hosted at the beautiful Fairmont Springs in Canada every year. On June 15, 2011, CFG was up against nominees from all over the world in interactive entertainment.
The project helped build several libraries in Zambia, and stock them with 10 000 books, as well as give 50 girls scholarships. The app for the project was downloaded over 900 000 times.
