The SOCAN Songwriting Prize is Canada’s most prestigious award for independent music creators. This year SOCAN grew their nominations to 10 French and 10 English artist from 5 each the previous year, requiring a new site design to accommodate the change.
Crescent designed a fresh, colourful site configured to spotlight the 10 French or 10 English nominees on one page. From a technology perspective, we extended voting capabilities into the social platforms collecting votes both through Twitter and Facebook in addition to the on-site voting that was already in place. The built-in controllable music player was also upgraded providing an interrupted listening experience while a user navigates the pages of the site. The reusable design template also feature space for award sponsors and contest terms and conditions. All in all a highly interactive and engaging site for SOCAN to enable users to be fully involved in the voting process.
