The MMA Smarties awards are the leading global awards program for the mobile marketing industry that honor the best-in-class Mobile Marketing strategies, agencies and mobile ad providers. Vdopia received a total of 3 shortlisted finalists at Smarties APAC'14 as it continued its winning streak from the year before.

"Our recognition speaks to the innovations and excellence we strive to deliver to our clients and agencies every day and we are thrilled to share this honor with Unilever Indonesia and Mindshare Indonesia. When MMA added the 'Most Engaging Mobile Creative' and 'Best Brand Experience in Mobile Rich Media' categories this year, it was a nod to consumer experience in the most impactful way. The Vaseline Men Campaign has become an excellent example of a Mobile success that is both refreshingly innovative and effective, so we couldn't be more excited to see it acknowledged at the most prestigious advertising award competition in the APAC," said Preetesh Chouhan, SVP, of Vdopia Asia Pacific.

With Vaseline Men 'Handsome to the Max' Mobile campaign, Vdopia created Indonesia's first-of-its kind combination of Mobile video and rich media ad with 20 levels of engagement for a thoroughly customized experience.
