Blue Water was recently recognized by the Web Marketing Associations 12th annual Internet Advertising Competition (IAC) for the American Lung Associations Share Your Story campaign. Named Best Associations Integrated Ad Campaign and Best Health Care Integrated Ad Campaign, the campaign honored Lung Cancer Awareness Month and provided support to patients, caregivers and survivors whose lives have been impacted by the disease.

The Share Your Story campaign is part of the American Lung Associations Facing Lung Cancer microsite,, which provides resources and education to individuals and families living with a lung cancer diagnosis. By facilitating public discussion around lung cancer, the #1 cancer killer of men and women in the United States, the Share Your Story campaign continues to help build awareness and reduce stigma around the disease, offering a source of support and providing a sense of reassurance and inspiration to those facing lung cancer.

The campaign consisted of a revamped homepage mosaic showcasing real people’s lung cancer stories and photos, landing pages where people could submit their stories and read those of others, buttons to facilitate social media sharing, and a tab to gather stories from Facebook. Additionally, a press release, e-newsletter, Facebook posts and Tweets (using the hashtag #LCAM) were sent out to encourage story submissions and honor the stories shared. As a result of this campaign, visits to the website in the month of November increased by 102 percent from the previous month, with a total of 130 stories shared.

Intel won for a system of linking passive ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) tags to Intel processors, thereby enabling new features and capabilities for computers, tablets and other electronic devices.

BP International was selected for an RFID-based control-of-work solution that makes refinery “isolation” work safer and more efficient, and that enables the company to maintain accurate records, updated in near-real time. HP Brazil won for an RFID-enabled system to track the recycling of its printers.

Omni-ID won this year’s Best in Show award for its Visual Tag System, which includes RFID tags with display screens for showing bar codes, images and text, enabling a company to provide workers with real-time information and instructions regarding moving assets.
