Answers in Genesis logoWASHINGTON (NRB) – Answers in Genesis will receive the 2017 NRB Media Award for Most Innovative Digital Method on Thursday, March 2, 2017, at Proclaim 17, the NRB International Christian Media Convention in Orlando, Florida.

The NRB Media Award for Most Innovative Digital Method is presented to an organization that utilizes trending, cutting-edge strategies and innovative platforms to move Christ-centered communication forward for a single event, tactic, or technology.

Answers in Genesis (AiG) is an apologetics ministry dedicated to helping Christians defend their faith and proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ effectively. AiG provides answers to questions about the Bible — particularly the book of Genesis — regarding key issues such as creation, evolution, science, and the age of the earth.

This past year, the AiG team used cutting-edge social media techniques to promote and broadcast the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the ministry's Ark Encounter, including 360° photos and videos, Facebook live videos, and live drone footage. The ceremony was live streamed on Facebook and YouTube, receiving more than 180,000 views and reaching more than 1.5 million.

The Most Innovative Digital Method Award is one of 21 awards that will be presented during Proclaim 17, which takes place February 27-March 2, 2017, at the Orlando World Center Marriott in Orlando. For the complete list of 2017 award recipients, click here
