Companies around the world use digital annual reports to showcase their annual business achievements in an interactive and user-friendly way. Each year, the most innovative digital masterpieces are honored by the juries of the LACP Vision Awards and the ARC Awards. More than 1,000 annual report submissions are judged every year, and we are very proud to say that our client’s reports are always among the winners. So, let’s take a look at some of the projects that were able to impress the LACP and ARC juries this reporting season.
Highlights of the 2017 Annual Reporting Season: Top Winners at the LACP and ARC Awards
With a total of 7 ARC Awards, the 2017 Annual Report from China Telecom clearly stood out from the crowd. Following the overarching theme of “Co-building our Smart Future”, the online report was constructed to replicate a cube of Tetris pieces. The cube represented the relationship between China Telecom and its many external stakeholders. By “deconstructing” the cube into its various fragments, visitors can experience the “building blocks” of company reporting, such as financial key figures, ESG reporting, or Corporate Governance reporting.
Another great achievement for our Hong Kong colleagues is the digital annual report created for China Unicom. The multi-award-winning report features a galactic theme with numerous interstellar highlights, such as asteroids, constellations, black holes, and stellar nebula. A 360° visual environment invites the user to move through “space” and to discover the facts, figures, and innovative ideas of China Unicom.
Looking at the Russian annual reporting landscape, Rostelecom’s colorful rreport was honored with an award of the highest Platinum category at the LACP awards. The report’s main focus was on the company’s digital projects, which were visualized through the implementation of extensive 3D graphics. Additional lucky winners in the region are Aeroflot, with its annual report featuring an animated main page with full-screen dynamic images, as well as the HMS Group with their report titles “Well Balanced Management” which presents key messages and themes via unique images, such as a color-changing mandala, on the main page, and also throughout the report.
Among our European projects, Geberit was honored with 2 “Golden Moments” this year for its state-of-the-art integrated annual report, which featured a special interactive “Sharing Knowledge” section. In addition, BMW Group’s digital report, which focused on e-mobility, took its former position on the winner’s podium once again.
