Bangalore: Facebook announced the winners of its first-ever Studio Award, that rewarded campaigns that "made full use of Facebook marketing products" in a celebration of all things viral.

With 1000 submissions from 40 different countries, some stinkers were sure to fail like Poopbags.com and "Be the Butt Campaign," which asked pet owners to submit a photo that would replace its "iconic rear end" logo with the butt of a contestant's dog.

For American Express "Small Business Saturday" campaign by Digitas and Crispin Porter + Bogusky won the Facebook Studio Award's highest honor, the Blue award. If the campaign's title didn't give it away, "Small Business Saturday" efficiently mobilizes consumers to frequent stores owned by small businesses.

"Mob the Rainbow" campaign for Skittles, which engaged Facebook fans to participate in real-life, physical events was the favorite one. For "Valentine the Rainbow," Skittles had fans sending hundreds of Valentine's Day cards to someone who they didn't think got a lot of love during the rest of the year.
