EAGAN, Minn. -Clio Sports on Wednesday announced the 2018 Clio Sports Winners in the Gold, Silver, Bronze and Shortlisted categories. The Minnesota Vikings are recipients of the following awards:
• Social Media - Social Video – Believing in Miracles – Silver
• Digital/Mobile - Virtual/Augmented Reality – Augmenting Game Day – Bronze
• Multi-Platform Campaign – Conquering a Season with Viking Quest – Bronze
• Social Media - Social Video – Capturing a 'Miracle' on Camera – Shortlist
• Single Platform Campaign – Vikings Color Outside the Lines on Snapchat – Shortlist
The "Believing in Miracles" entry received the second-highest honor and was driven by fan submissions and media reactions to the memorable Minneapolis Miracle play that took place on Jan. 17 in the Divisional playoff game against the Saints. The play resulted in a dramatic Vikings win that evening, and the moment has reverberated and resulted in a flurry of award-show wins for the Vikings organization.
"Vikings Entertainment Network is proud and honored to be recognized in the Clio Sports awards this year," said Bryan Harper, Vice President of Content and Production. "We have an elite group of videographers, editors, producers and social content creators that work tirelessly to give our fans unforgettable social media and video coverage. Winning one silver and two bronze Clios is really a tribute to our loyal fans, and it motivates us to keep creating the greatest digital, social and video content in the National Football League."
Clio Sports was created in 2014 to honor the best in sports advertising and marketing. Every year, an elite panel of judges sifts through hundreds of credible entries to determine who's-who in sports marketing.
