Wired Magazine, Xerox Take Creative Media 'Best In Show'

For the second consecutive year, a finalist in the Business Media category - Wired magazine's campaign for Xerox - took Best in Show during Media magazine's 4th Annual Creative Media Awards Tuesday night in New York. The campaign, which was done in collaboration with Xerox media shop Mediaedge:cia, marked the first time a major magazine turned its cover over to a user-generated media campaign. To demonstrate the custom print capabilities of Xerox's iGEN technology, the campaign enabled magazine subscribers to upload their own images to create personalized versions of Wired's cover.

Wired's 2007 Best in Show comes a year after Bradley & Montgomery took Best in Show honors at Media's 2006 Creative Media Awards for a business media campaign that adapted electrical outlets in the Indianapolis International Airport into a new business advertising medium for client Chase Commercial Banking.
