The CampaignTo remind everyone of this dream we revealed the number of the legendary phone, and turned it all upside down. Instead of waiting for the winning call, they could now place the call themselves. The lines were open for 9 days, and you could place a call at any time. If someone picked up you won a prize, big or small. Everyone was hunting for the grand prize; one million norwegian kroner!
Creative ExecutionWe live broadcasted the phone, located at the National Lottery headquarters. The live broadcast could be viewed at the campaign website, billboards, and at metro stations - places where people are waiting and killing time on their phones, so they just might place a call to Hamar. On the campaign website you could also see all incoming calls from all over Norway. With just a click you could call the phone directly from mobile banners placed in Norway's biggest newspaper. With over 700 digital screens from northern norway all the way to the south broadcasting live from Hamar, Norsk Tipping was receiving calls from all over the country.
- 25,9 millions calls in 9 days. Population: 5 millions - 185 calls per second at the most intense. - Probably the first time so many people have called the same number within a given time-frame. - Organic Facebook reach: 71 % of the population - 29 000 hours streamed live broadcasting.
We wanted to make people feel that they could win at any given moment. With just a mobile in their hands they could pick up their phone whenever they felt like it and place a call. Who dares not to call if their intuition, good luck or karma kicks in? Our target audience was young people aged between 18 and 40. With the target audience always having a phone in their hands we wanted to take use of that, and make it our advantage.
Ice Skaters shows the dreamy and slightly surreal spectacle of a middle aged couple spinning and gliding on the polished wood floors of an elegant, high-ceilinged apartment in their socks. With the tagline 'Bring life into your living room' it is a beautifully crafted advert creating a warm, nostalgic mood for the brand, Ikea. It won Bronze at Eurobest in 2018 for production company CZAR Brussels. Director, Joe Vanhoutteghem and producer, Lander Engels talk to Eurobest about the experience of creating the work.
The team at Marvelous Moscow have the answer. CCO, Artem Sinyavskiy shares the story of how their work for Skylink, 'The 1 MB Campaign', went on to win Bronze at Eurobest in 2017, despite the media budget being pulled a week before the launch of the campaign.
PS21 Madrid, the creative transformation company set up by founder of creative agency dommo Agustín Vivancos, was in its first year when the team began work on Searching for the Special Colour of Seville. It was a piece of work that would not only go on to win the agency’s first major award, Bronze in Creative Data at Eurobest in 2018, but would also become part of Seville’s cultural heritage. We hear how the idea came to life from Strategy Director, Sergio Garcia and Executive Creative Director, Victor Blanco.
