Best in Digital and Interactive Media

Eligibility/Criteria – This category focuses on specific consumer-facing products from companies, leagues, teams and governing bodies that deliver sports programming and content through various digital media platforms.

This includes:

  • Over-the-top and direct-to-consumer digital video networks, either those sold via subscription or ad-supported business models
  • Authenticated and unauthenticated digital video networks
  • Mobile applications
  • Websites

The category aims to recognize excellence in this area from a single digital product or application. A company’s entire body of work from the eligibility year should not be submitted. Entries in this category should demonstrate both technical innovation and an ability to deliver original content.

While this category recognizes consumer-facing products, business-to-business service providers that play critical roles in the development and delivery of those products should also be named as part of the nomination.
