We are delighted to announce that we have been shortlisted in two categories as finalists in The Drum Marketing Awards 2019.
We are the only Welsh agency shortlisted under ‘Media Planning or Buying’ and ‘Advertising Campaign’ both for our work with Swansea University for their June Open Day Campaign 2018. The campaign generated a 30% increase in Open Day registrations in 2018 exceeding the 10% target, over delivering by 200%.
The Drum Marketing awards celebrate the best marketers and campaigns both nationally and internationally. Open to advertising agencies, in-house marketing teams, design consultancies, digital agencies, PR companies and integrated agencies we are pleased to represent Wales against some of UK’s largest brands and agencies.
The Drum Marketing Awards are considered to be one of the industry’s most sought after accolades and have many prestigious judges such as Sarah Kiefer (Director of Business Marketing at Spotify), Tatiana Piccolo (VP of Global Fragrance at Avon UK), Victoria Needs (Director of International Marketing at Sony) and Charles Allen (Head of Marketing at Arsenal Football Club).
In the ‘Advertising’ category we are nominated alongside campaigns for Vodaphone, Swinton Insurance, Sky Betting & Gaming and Samsung. In the ‘Media Planning or Buying’ category we are nominated alongside Fox Sports for the Fifa World Cup 2018 and Volkswagen UK.
For Swansea University, we created a multi-faceted campaign which utilised a broad range of media to engage with 18-21 year olds including; video on demand, TV, digital and various outdoor platforms to name a few.
