We’re delighted to introduce AwardStage – a web based system that makes life easy for awards managers, entrants and judges.
We have never made a secret of the fact that, at Oval, we love encouraging entrepreneurial spirit. A good idea should never be wasted; rather it should be explored, researched and – assuming the basis is sound – it should be put to the test.
Last year, we were tasked with developing an award management system for Creative Circle. This organisation is both an awards and education body, and exists to encourage and reward creatives in the fields of design and media. Each year, they hold a competition to enable individuals and agencies to showcase their best work across a number of areas.
The system needed to provide a robust, intuitive and secure way of managing the entire process, from initial entrant registration through submission of entries, payment, and onto judging and collection of the final scores.
This is where Oval stepped in. We devised an online award management system which enabled the smooth running of the awards, and we learned a lot in the process.
Us being us, we didn’t want to put this newfound knowledge and insight to waste, and realised that there was a significant gap in the market for a system like ours. And so it was that AwardStage was born!
We have spent the last year refining the intricacies of the system, testing it to breaking point, building a beautiful brand and website, and are now on a mission to spread the word! You can find out more about AwardStage here.
