SweetRush’s creative and innovative mobile and video learning programs impressed the judging panel in the prestigious and rigorous competition.

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., July 17, 2017 — The Summit Creative Award competition recently announced its results for 2017, and SweetRush was named a winner in two categories, educational video and multimedia.

Silver Winner: Educational Video
For a promotional video for the now Hilton Honors® loyalty program and educational curriculum created with Hilton

Bronze Winner: Educational Interactive Media
For Counter Intelligence, a sophisticated, serious game for tire sales associates, created with Bridgestone Americas

Including this year’s awards, SweetRush has been honored with a total of six Summit awards. Previous honors include wins in the categories of video and interactive media and a Platinum award for education marketing.

“Shifting demographics in the workplace are really driving demand for creativity in learning solutions, to make sure that we’re gaining—and keeping—the attention of learners,” said Arturo Schwartzberg, SweetRush Cofounder and Chairman. “Being recognized by an awards organization that focuses on creativity is an honor, and it demonstrates that our focus on creative—and the results our clients are seeing—is helping us lead the learning and development industry.”

This year, the Summit Creative Award received more than 5,000 submissions from 24 countries, and all projects were reviewed by a panel of international judges that included professionals in Australia, Canada, Chile, Japan, South Africa, and the United States.

“Winning a Summit Creative Award is a significant accomplishment in one’s career. With vetted judges, tough judging criteria, two-phase blind judging processes, and strict bylaws limiting winners, only deserving entries receive recognition,” said Jocelyn Luciano, Executive Director for the Summit International Awards. “The creative work this year was outstanding. Watching the judges debate the details of individual entries in the runoff for the top spots was inspiring.”
