This annual awards competition is solely devoted to the recognition of outstanding online advertising in all of its various forms.

Hark founder Jeffrey Harkness states, “My team and I are particularly proud of the Vermont Symphony Orchestra project and the work that went into creating a world-class site. Taking a traditional, cultural entity like the VSO, digitally rebranding, and successfully modernizing the look and feel of their website possessed all the elements of what we love and do best at Hark.”
