The day that we’ve all been waiting for has finally arrived! Our judges spent the last few weeks combing through your Prezi Awards nominations. We saw creative educational prezis, persuasive business pitches, and a bevy of beautiful designs. It certainly wasn’t easy, but after much deliberation, we've finally chosen the best prezis of the year. See them in all their glory here, or check them out below.
Without further ado, here are the best prezis of 2016:
BEST OVERALL DESIGN
As our most coveted category, it takes creativity, skill, and and hard work to create a prezi worthy of winning Best Overall Design. This year, we are thrilled to name The Secret by Presentaciones.biz as the winner.
Why we love it: This is a beautiful example of visual storytelling. The combination of a well-chosen metaphor, close attention to detail and expert zooming (not to mention a subject we can't get enough of) ultimately won our hearts. Love this prezi, too? Tweet it out!
BEST BUSINESS PREZI
Pitch decks, overview presentations, and marketing campaigns--oh my! There were so many Best Business Prezi submissions to choose from this year. In the end, we selected The Bar by Perfect Pitch Consulting Group.
Why we love it: Perfect Pitch utilized Prezi's audio and media support to create a story of Big Rock Brewery that can stand alone. This prezi is perfectly designed for embedding in a website, and combines a recorded narrative with an invitation to explore the content at your own pace. Love this prezi, too? Tweet it out!
Not only is Hans von Krottnaurer's delightful Kein Schnee (no snow) prezi seasonally appropriate, it's also the winner of this year's Best Zoom award.
Why we love it: Hans used smart, effective movement to tell his festive tale. Navigate through his crisp illustrations to see what we mean. Love this prezi, too? Tweet it out!
BEST REUSABLE DESIGN
Tired of the same ol' resume templates? So are HR departments. David Melhart, this year's winner of the Best Reusable Design award, shows you how to mix things up with his prezume.
Why we love it: Who doesn't love a good 8-bit graphic? David's use of trendy graphics along with fun zooms and creative ways of sharing his experience make this prezume a great template for anyone looking for a new way to tell the story of themselves. Love this prezi, too? Tweet it out!
If you're looking to learn something new, The Ivory Trade by The Prezenter is a great place to start. As the winner of this year's Best Edu award, this prezi tells an important story with unforgettable facts and fluidity.
Why we love it: The Prezenter's use of Prezi makes the story of ivory banning more than just a story. Facts are presented alongside audio and visual content that makes you feel really connected to what you're viewing, thereby creating a more engaging and memorable experience. Love this prezi, too? Tweet it out!
Congratulations to all of our winners this year, and a big thank you to our community for once again making the Prezi Awards a resounding success. We can't wait to see what you all bring to the table in 2017!
