Bayshore Solutions is a Horizon Interactive Distinguished AgencyTAMPA, FL, and DENVER, CO, April 2016 – Bayshore Solutions is announced as a 2016 Horizon Interactive Distinguished Agency upon winning nine awards in the 2016 Horizon Interactive Awards competition.

Silver Horizon Interactive Awards were earned by the Port Canaveral website in the government category, QC Energy Resources in corporation websites, Restaurant Magic in B2B websites, and USF Center for Advanced Medical Learning and Simulation (CAMLS) in university websites.  Bronze Horizon Awards were won by Columbia Restaurant in restaurant websites, Gardner-Gibson in consumer information websites, Morphogenesis in health and human services websites, Physicians Leadership Institute in training or e-learning websites, and the David A.

The Horizon Interactive Awards competition, now in its 14th year, was created to recognize excellence in interactive media production worldwide.  This year’s Horizon Interactive competition judged over 1,100 entries from 21 countries around the world.  Each year, those entries are scrutinized by an international panel of judges and narrowed down to the “best of the best” to be recognized and promoted on an international stage for their excellence. The winning entries showcase the industry’s best interactive media solutions.

“The competition raised the bar for immersive, interactive experiences both online and offline,” said Mike Sauce, Founder of the Horizon Interactive Awards. “This year’s competition again saw an emphasis on full screen, immersive user experiences coupled with fully responsive frameworks to allow consistency from desktop to tablet to mobile phones. Brands are finding new ways to connect with customers through multi-channel marketing while providing consistent messages. The stand-outs this year found a way to integrate the online interactive world with real-life scenarios and other offline traditional media. This highlights the power of digital communication and reflects that technology is a part of our lives at just about every turn. We continue to showcase digital media projects which strive for the best blend between top-notch creative imagery with clear, concise content, and well thought out user experiences.”

“Bayshore Solutions is excited to win nine Horizon Interactive Awards and to again be honored as a Horizon Distinguished Agency,” said Kevin Hourigan, President and CEO of Bayshore Solutions. “Such industry recognition validates our methodology and the consistent pursuit of excellence in not just aesthetic and functional elements, but in results-driving performance of the web properties we create for our clients.”
