So far, 2016 has kept the entire Jpixx outfit on their toes. From the Portsmouth Public Schools Google Chromebook Launch to the TAO Sea Level Festival earlier this month, Jpixx has worked on some amazing projects with some incredible people. But don’t worry if you missed the latest — all highlights are right here, just for you.
Jpixx was on location to capture the reactions of over 4,000 high schoolers the day they were gifted brand new Google Chromebooks throughout the city of Portsmouth. In conjunction with Virginia’s e-Learning Backpack Initiative and Google For Education the laptops have opened a world of opportunity for the students to expand their education beyond the classroom.
The annual TAO Sea Level Singer/Songwriter Festival showcased some serious talent this year and proved yet again that Norfolk’s locals know how to really bring the house down. Spearheading the festival’s digital marketing efforts was the Jpixx crew, who made a special appearance on stage to receive the 2016 Beacon Award for contributions made to TAO throughout the years. Needless to say, there were a lot of high fives that day.

*A big congratulations to Andy Geels, the festival’s Emerging Artist Contest winner and also to Katie Howard, who was voted the audience favorite in the Jpixx online poll. As the winner of the Emerging Artist Contest Audience Poll, Howard will be receiving a free HD music video experience from Jpixx – stay tuned!
