Day 2: IAB Reveals Winners of First-Ever ‘Mobile Rising Stars’ Competition

IAB Mobile Rising Stars
These are the formats:

Filmstrip: Scrollable, multipanel, horizontal or vertical ad unit, much like “The Filmstrip” Display Standard Ad Unit Richly engaging experience with tons of content possibilities delivered in page with users fully in control
Slider: Overlay unit on the bottom of a page mirrors touch screen habit, prompting users to slide the entire page over, unveiling a full brand experience, much like “The Slider”  Display Standard Ad Unit Optimal creative space keeping viewer fully in control of ad experience

Adhesion Banner: Standard banner that “adheres” to its start position when device is rotated or when content is manipulated (e.g., with a tap to magnify) Elegant solution to fundamental challenge


Full Page: Full screen experience that accommodates both portrait and landscape orientation An ideal creative canvas—the whole screen—with interactive functionality
