Creative idea explanation:


Campaign idea explanation: Lebanon is plagued by continuous political unrest that jeopardizes its future. The Lebanese population lost faith in their politicians and can’t seem to find any common national objective to rally around. By applying its humankind philosophy (change the way people think, feel and behave), Leo Burnett initiated a CSR campaign to trigger National Conscience. The campaign started with the development of a book, written by Leo Burnett Mena Chairman, Farid Chehab, “A Bet For A National Conscience” promoting federative economy.The book was posted online; with the option for readers to input their opinion. The book would evolve accordingly. Few months later, the book was printed in Arabic, French and English and was launched in the 2 most important book fairs in Lebanon.The success was immediate, with 8 million online hits and 2.2. Million USD in free PR coverage across all Media. Even national network billboards were granted for free to support this National Cause. In few months the book sold 2000+ copies and became the subject of university students’ discussion forums and economical workshops. The cause lead to the creation of the first civic economic lobby in the history of the Nation ( Civic Influence Hub , CIH) with the objective of activating the 5-year water plan as a first federative project (project Blue Gold). Perhaps, The most interesting result was the correlation between a hasty parallel project launched on april 25 by the government, the public hype and the foundation of CIH.

Multiple entry explanation: The success is immediate; the site gets 8 Million hits and the book more than $ 2.2 Million in free media coverage. The objective was fully reached, as only 9 months after the e-launch, a group of influence –Civic Influence Hub- CIH- was created by 35 of the most powerful Lebanese businessmen.CIH raised on its first session $ 2Millions to fund its activities. The e-book was read on-line by more than 10,000 people across 318,510 interactive sessions. The site received 7,856,791.00 hits until march 2012.In libraries, more than 2000 copies were sold until March 2012. Chehab is now invited to conferences, talk shows and universities to develop the ideas of the book. Finally, the success of the book led to the launch on April 25, 2012 of a parallel governmental project for water, indicating a strong correlation with the public hype, CIH creation and demand generated by the book.

Campaign idea explanation: Since its 1964 launch, ROM chocolate has been a symbol of Romanian pride. With the 2010 American Rom campaign, the brand strengthened this position. But after one year off air, ROM’s market share and brand indicators were going down. The brand needed a turnaround, all within a minuscule budget. The brief was to create a campaign to rekindle people’s national pride for December 1st - Romania’s National Day - a date that meant little but another day off to our 25-35 y.o core target . Our idea was rooted in a stunning discovery... if one googled: ‘Romanians are’ in various languages the suggested search predictions were all derogatory. Changing Romanians’ image on Google was the perfect means for ROM to reach its communication objectives and re-awaken national pride. We knew Google predictions could change if we got enough online positive searches, but most important, positive content on Romanians. We started the campaign with an online seeding of the insulting screenshots. Overnight, media exploded turning this into the hot topic of the day. Three days later we came with the solution: we redirected ROM’s webpage to a landing page, www.romaniansaresmart.com, where people could generate positive searches in Google pages around the world. To add to the campaign’s momentum we partnered with the top 10 Romanian bloggers, each adopting a personalized search. Following them, hundreds of local bloggers joined the movement, helping to generate positive content for Romanians. A series of testimonials featuring key opinion leaders urging people to join in the campaign turned viral. The campaign peaked when Romanian CNN, Realitatea TV, joined the campaign in a one-day live broadcast TV marathon, for the National Day, where public figures and regular folks offered support. “Romanians Are Smart” has evolved from a search tool and a web destination into a powerful content platform.

Creative idea explanation:


Campaign idea explanation: Quality of roads is the eternal problem of Yekaterinburg – the fourth largest city of Russia. The local site URA.RU, which writes about life in the city, decided to remind politicians that it is their duty to repair the roads. The problem is – our politicians don’t care about potholes. Their only worry is their own public image. We associated road holes with the images of certain politicians. In the night, on three potholes in city center, we drew faces of the governor, the mayor and the vice-mayor. The news about caricatures became a sensation. With this intense PR the politicians were no longer able to sit idle. The holes were fixed. The news about the action was released in more than 300 media venues, the website traffic on URA.ru doubled. The officials at last started to do their jobs.

Campaign idea explanation: The client wanted to implement an event that would gain media interest, while also providing sufficiently strong communication of the Jägermeister brand message. The most important aspect of communication was support of the consciousness to combine "Jägermeister and ice". Due to the limited budget offered by the client, Outbreak opted for the path of a "buzz stunt", an unexpected event that provokes interest all across society, including the media. The result was the creation of three giant ice balls with frozen bottles of Jägermeister inside, appearing in public over two phases. Phase 1: A ten-ton ice ball with a frozen Jägermeister bottle and antlers mysteriously appeared overnight in the former military grounds in Milovice. We informed the media of its existence with the help of agents provocateur. Phase 2: Jägermeister disclosed that it was behind the ice ball mystery. Phase 3: Two 3-ton ice balls were brought to the summer festivals Sázavafest and Joyride. The ball was placed near a selling point for the Jägermeister brand message. Fans of Jägermeister themselves chosen the place of delivery of the third and final ice ball through a contest over the social network Facebook. Results: Placement in the main newscast of TV Nova and Prima TV, total viewership 2,621,780 people, 3 articles in the best-selling Czech newspaper MF Dnes (834,000 daily readers), 3 articles in the best-selling Czech tabloid Blesk (1,400,000 daily readers), 6 articles in other major printed media, numerous online media articles, ex. Novinky.cz (2,000,000 daily readers) or iDnes (600,000 daily readers), 400,000+ views on YouTube and Stream. Impact at festivals: roughly 35,000 people.Media value of phase 1: CZK 14.9 million. Media value of phases 2 and 3: roughly CZK 4 million. Public consciousness of the connection of Jägermeister served only chilled or on the rocks rose by 15%.

Creative idea explanation:


Campaign idea explanation: Olympic Games are all about pushing one’s limits. Dolce Sport, official broadcaster of the Olympic Games in London, wanted to do more than just broadcast the competition. They wanted to live up to the olympic spirit and inspire Romanians. So, we challenged a romanian bike lover, Florin Georgescu, to ride the bike from Romania to London in 20 days (more than 2000 km) and to film his attempt through a camera mounted on his helmet. He is blind. He rides the bike in tandem, with his best friend. During Olympics, Dolce broadcasted not only the Olympic Games, but also Florin's ‘marathon’. While people could watch the Olympic Games on TV, they could also follow Florin's attempt daily on Internet, under the message ‘see beyond limtis’. Highly impressed with his story, it was covered both by traditional media (most important 2 TV channels in Romania, national newspapers) and digital media (digital editions of national televisions and papers), who covered it all along his journey. His story echoed all the way to New York, as NBC interviewed him during his journey. People were so touched by his attempt that they cheered him on, like a true olympian (avatars, blog posts, facebook & twitter posts etc). In order to interact with him, they uploaded supporting & cheering audio messages on campaign website that he could listen on the road through a specially developed mobile app. They also supported him through other digital tools like the campaign’s facebook page or the avatar generating application. When he finally reached London, President of the Olympic Committee welcomed him and made him an honorary member of the Olympic Committee. With more than 200 articles (traditional and digital media) and thousands of social networks reactions, the campaign reached and inspired more than 2.5 million people.

Multiple entry explanation: Dolce Sport is a media channel and the campaign created awareness for the broadcasting of the Olympics on Dolce Sport and also promoted Dolce Sport as more than just a broadcaster of sport events, being an inspiring brand.

Campaign idea explanation: Background: The Israeli-Palestinian conflict has been going on for over 60 years, with growing tension every day. Mission: Find a creative way to bring Israeli and Palestinian citizenscloser together. Idea: Blood Relations – The mutual blood donation project. Instead of spilling blood, people from both sides could share it, starting with those with most reason to hate – bereaved Israeli and Palestinian families. The Israeli national blood bank and an Islamic hospital agreed to accept blood donations so they could be shared with those on opposite side to save lives. Results: • Mutual blood donations were made around the world by Israelis and Palestinians, and Jews and Muslims• The event was featured on national news, reaching astaggering 24% rating (approx. 1,600,000 people)• People across the world who couldn’t donate blood physicallyshowed their support by donating virtual blood on facebook.• The project was covered internationally by NBC, BBC, Reuters, Associated Press, Vanity Fair, and more, reaching an estimated global audience of 350,000,000 people• Blood Relations got a direct response from the United Nations, the White House, US Congress, US State Department, and other organizations such as the Red Cross are also coming forward to take part

Multiple entry explanation: Our idea reached an estimated 350 million people worldwide – by bringing those with most reasons to hate each other together, to share blood instead of spilling it.

Creative idea explanation:


Campaign idea explanation: By Lebanese law, men and women are not equal. The discriminatory laws reduce women to “half citizens”.The challenge was to create enough awareness among the Lebanese society.The main objective was to foment enough popular participation in order to be able to pressure the relevant authorities and concerned parties. We started online, asking women to add mustaches to their profile and change their gender, to become men. The discriminatory laws were simplified into statements to be shared, and an online petition was circulated.NGOs, activists, reporters, bloggers, helped build hype by generating their own content.On March 8th, International Women's Day, women dressed as men. By nightfall, 20 meters away from parliament, the movement was joined by hundreds of women.The event made it to the 8 o'clock news on leading local and Arab channels.We received international exposure being featured in magazines, radios, newspapers, as well as numerous regional and international blogs & websites. The movement got 1.2 million USD of free media coverage. On August 4th 2011, i.e., 7 months after the start of the “No Rights No women” movement, The Honor Crimes Law was abolished. The Domestic Violence law is now in final study by the parliament.

Creative idea explanation:


Campaign idea explanation: Serbian hospitals were poorly equipped to provide care for our youngest and most vulnerable citizens. The 40 years old incubators were severely outdated, resulting in death rate for babies to exceed 60 percent. To help little heroes we created the biggest humanitarian movement in Serbia ever and mobilized more than 1 million people and 700 companies to join their fight. Image of a raised baby’s fist - drawing on the well known image of resistance – became an iconic symbol for the campaign, sweeping across the country! “Battle for the Babies” raised funds for 195 incubators, amounting to 2.600.000€ covering the needs of the entire country. Media reach was over 85% of total population. Campaign generated 420.000€ worth of free media and 1.700.000€ of PR. President of Serbia declared 2012 the Year of Babies.

Multiple entry explanation: Battle for the babies kicked off with activities of our guerilla squads and spread through web and social networks. Then we motivated all media channels to join the battle for life of prematurely born babies through donation of free media time. Media companies who supported the cause: all national and local TV stations; newspapers and magazines with highest readership in the country; national and local radio stations, billboards and city lights; bus branding companies; cinemas; numerous web sites and regional web portals.

Campaign idea explanation: In 2009, Serbian government announced the new system of driving training and testing. Three years and thousands of lives later – the new system still doesn’t exist. Confidential driving tests leak to the public, resulting in young people only learning the leaked tests and not the entire range of traffic laws. So, we created an app with real accidents videos and let it leak as the “new driving tests for the new system”. Within 48 hours, Ministry of Interior announced that the new system starts on October 25th, and the site crashed temporarily due to used bandwidth.

Multiple entry explanation: New Driving Tests campaign has an innovative approach – it is an app that was launched guerilla style as “new driving tests that leaked” on internet. The campaign generated great free media coverage, and pushed the government to make a public announcement regarding the issue.

Creative idea explanation:


Campaign idea explanation: The opening day of the model makers fair was until now the least-visited day of the whole fair. The aim was to change that this year. Fortunately, in 2011, the beginning of the fair coincided with Independence Day in Austria. Our job was to redirect visitors of the Independence day's celebration to the model makers fair. We sent a self-made tank to join the traditional military parade at the Heroes Square in Vienna. Remote-controlled, with a total weight of 320 kg and to the scale of 1:5. Past the cordoned areas, the police and the military, our tank pushed relentlessly through to his huge counterparts, the real tanks and military equipment displayed at the Heroes Square. The magic of model making is to make things smaller. In intruding the military parade with our mini tank, we transfered much of this magic directly to the Independence Day's celebrations, drawing attention to the starting model makers fair. But more important: Guerilla advertising has never been taken so literally!! The previous visitor number record was increased by a further 4 % and the model makers fair enjoyed its best ever opening day.

Creative idea explanation:


Campaign idea explanation: The launch of Paramount Comedy channel in Moscow and St. Petersburg was a case of building awareness and differentiation on a 200 000 euro budget. It was clear for us that the tight budget cannot support a proper level of reach neither on mass media nor on digital. Not if we needed to pay for it! The launch date was set for April 1st, - April Fools’ Day. Once a celebrated day in Russia, calling for pranks and fun, it was now almost forgotten. Dusty. Obsolete. Restoring the meaning of April’s Fools seemed the perfect way to launch Paramount Comedy and build its association with humor and fun. But how? We discovered that April 1st is also The International Day of Birds. We convinced one of Russia’s most respected non-profit ornithology organizations –The Russian Birds Conservation Union – to initiate a campaign against April Fools’, lobbying April 1st as exclusively reserved for The International Day of Birds. Nobody cared for April Fools’ Day anyway, right? We started by creating controversy in digital and offline media. And when this heated up, Paramount Comedy stepped into the battle to support the fans of April Fools’ Day. It initiated a new movement: «Save April Fools’» and gave people tools to fight the lethargy and restore April Fools’ Day to its known and deserved glory. The movement’s micro-site even offered digital pranking ideas and tools. The campaign reached more than 40 million people, out of which more than 60% (or 24 million people) were exposed to the branded phase of the campaign.

Campaign idea explanation: Selecting the university is the life changing moment for any 18 years old. It will decide your job, your future. And Ozyegin is one of the newest and very different universities. It has an entrepreneurship program, good internship connections, harvard and stanford level teachers and so on. So we said that, if you choose Ozyegin, your future CV looks better! In order to prove that, we create a life simulation to show your years in Ozyegin Universitesi and more. In order to capture the attention of the 18 years olds, we created this simulation in facebook. We took Facebook timeline and turned it into future timeline, showing the user's Ozyegin Future! While playing with simulation, users created their future CVs and with those they have been elected and the chosen ones were interviewed from University jury and selected for scholarships! This way, a game really changed their life.

Multiple entry explanation: This campaign has several innovative points; This is the first time in the world, Facebook timeline worked as a future timeline. We used well known timeline behaviour to talk about the future. With this campaign University could choose its own students. (In our country there is a central system that manages choices). With this campaign, university got applications from top 1000 students. Because of the AI structure of the simulation system, everyone experienced a different life simulation.
