Blockdot Wins Gold at the Summit International Awards


April 30, 2008 (Dallas, TX)– Dallas-based Blockdot was named a winner this week in the 2008 Summit Creative Award competition, receiving a prestigious gold award in the“men’s audience Web site category” for its ChevyCobalLabs.com web site.

Now in its 14th year, the Summit Creative Award competition has established itself as one of the premier arbiters of creative excellence. This is the second consecutive year Blockdot has been recognized by the Summit Creative Award competition; in 2007, Blockdot’s Find the Pink Spoon project for Baskin-Robbins took home a sliver award.

ChevyCobalLabs.com, which aims to attract first-time auto buyers looking for a hip ride with great gas mileage and an affordable sticker price, has raised the bar for automotive sites. With its fuel-injected fun and street cred image, the site entices users to participate in the Cobalt community for extended periods of time through a customization tool that allows users to trick out their own vehicle, compete in street tricked or trashed competitions, and race against others in a huge multiplayer game that stretches across multiple locations.
