#Reeds19: Tectonica wins Best International Firm and Best European Website
February 25, 2019
We are truly honoured to have been awarded the Campaigns & Elections’ 2019 Reed Award for Best International Firm. This is our third consecutive year receiving this honour, following a triple-win last year.
This year we're bringing home two awards back to our new offices in Barcelona. All three years we have won Best European Website award. We consider it our greatest moment of pride yet to receive recognition as the Best International Firm for our overall work building powerful campaign solutions for progressive parties, nonprofits and socially-conscious businesses around the world. We put our hearts into every projects we make, and we are are immensely proud to be recognised by the leading voices in the industry.
Best International Firm
Seven years ago, Tectonica started as a two-person operation in Buenos Aires, Argentina. We set up folding chairs, tables, and our personal laptops and started working on something that had until that moment only existed in our minds.
Today, we've grown into a 10+ member team and worked with 250+ clients around the globe. Our work has been used to fire up support for progressive movements, help community organisers amplify their voices, promote inspiring documentaries, and change the direction of politics across continents.
2018 was an amazing year; we completed more than 50 NationBuilder projects for progressive campaigns, grew our team, and made plans to move abroad. This year, we finally made Barcelona, Spain our new home. We rebranded our studio and will soon be expanding our offering. We’re excited for the challenges ahead.
We’re honoured to have been recognised for our work by the industry’s most important award, and we're excited to continue creating digital strategies for inspiring movements across the world.
Más Madrid: Best European Website
We won the Best European Website award for the online platform we created for Más Madrid, the movement to support Manuela Carmena in the lead up to her run for mayoral reelection. This is the third year in a row we've won in this category, and we couldn't be prouder.
We're passionate about helping movements in Europe take full advantage of the Internet’s capabilities. NationBuilder has become a staple in digital organising in Europe, and we’re glad to be one of the leading strategists using its capabilities to empower movements across the continent.
About the Reed Awards
The Reed Awards are the political campaigning business's most important event (they’re often called “The Oscars of the political industry”). Held by Campaigns and Election, one of the industry’s leading publications, they recognise the year’s most innovative and effective campaigns around the world.
Here at Tectonica, we’re no strangers to the Reeds. In 2017, we won the Best European Website award for our digital design and development work on the Sadiq Khan for London Mayor campaign. Last year, we brought home the Best International Website and Best European Website awards for the multisite solution we created for La Republique En Marche ! and the Best Action Center / Grassroots Website award for We Are All America, an activism platform dedicated to promote refugee and immigration rights across the U.S.
This year, the ceremony was held on February 20 and 21 in Austin, TX. It was an incredible opportunity to meet with our peers in the industry and to share experiences and lessons as well.
