American Technology Services Wins Two Davey Awards

Fairfax VA, December 3, 2018 — American Technology Services, Inc. (ATS®) announced today that its Davey Award Wins for the website design and development for The International Society for Heart & Lung Transplantation (ISHLT).

The Davey Awards exclusively honor the “Davids” of creativity, the finest small shops, firms and companies worldwide. David defeated the giant Goliath with a big idea and a little rock – the sort of thing small agencies do each year. The annual International Davey Awards honors the achievements of the “Creative Davids”, who derive their strength from big ideas rather than big budgets. ATS submitted two creative works to the 14th Annual Davey Awards and earned silver in Website Associations & Best Data Visualization website categories.

ATS continues to raise the bar! We submitted the website for our client, The International Society for Heart and Lung Transplantation (ISHLT), a professional organization dedicated to improving the care of patients with advanced heart or lung disease through transplantation, mechanical support and innovative therapies via research, education and advocacy.

“We are very excited to win these two awards from the Academy of Interactive & Visual Arts (AIVA) and the Davey Awards,” Amit Viraktamath, Sr. Development Manager, said. “Our team and client worked very hard to make this project come to fruition.”

More than 3,000 entries from across the US and around the world were judged and overseen by the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts (AIVA), a 700+ member organization of leading professionals from various disciplines of the visual arts dedicated to embracing progress and the evolving nature of traditional and interactive media.

Top entrants included Budweiser, Comcast, Dell, McDonald’s, Microsoft, National Gallery of Art, Red Bull, Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, and Whirlpool.

Once again, thank you so much to the AIVA and Davey Awards for choosing our website out of thousands of entries from around the world. We look forward to working toward another statuette in the future!
