INDE’s “Goodbye Rhinos” Augmented Reality App Gets BOLD Awards Nomination
Crowdsourcing Week and H-FARM came together to organise the most innovative awards program – the BOLD Awards showcase the best in the world from innovative businesses and individuals within a diverse range of industries.
INDE’s Goodbye Rhinos Augmented Reality application, “resurrecting” the last three Northern White Rhinos has been selected as a top 5 nominee for BOLD Awards 2019 in “Crowdsourced Marketing & Advertising Campaign”. The AR app brings the world’s biggest rhino sculpture – created by Australian artists Gillie & Marc, dedicated to the memory of the Last Three – to life, to help raise critical awareness about rhino conservation and extinction.
“We received hundreds of submissions and thousands of votes from all over the world. Our judges, with category specific expertise, found that your work is extraordinary!”, said Mia Zamora on behalf of the BOLD Awards Team.
The awards will be presented at a gala event inside H-FARM, an outstanding, out-of-the-box location just outside of Venice, Italy on April 5, 2019.
