Why is this work relevant for PR?

We used the Champions League Final as a reason to build awareness and good reputation for the gastro-bar “Rebra & Kotlety” . Using a non-standard idea, we achieved a unique PR effect. “Rebra & Kotlety” became the headliner of national TV and online media. We received over 40 million impressions & over 100 free media publications. Local bar became the famous all over the country.

Background

When Champions League Final came to Kyiv, we’ve lost our best feature - hospitality. There were only money and profit in minds. Owners of the apartments canceled reservations to resell it more expensive later. B&B prices increased in 50-60 times. The biggest European media wrote about Ukrainian’s greediness. The Liverpool FC officials appealed to UEFA to ask help in dealing with crazy prices for housing in Kyiv. It was a national shame!

Describe the creative idea

To earn back our reputation of hospitable nation, gastro-bar “Rebra & Kotlety” decided to lose money. We transformed gastro-bar into a free hostel for European fans and listed it on Airbnb. Day later fans have booked all beds in our Hostel-Bar. On May 26, they arrived in Kyiv.

How do you make an idea work when your entire media budget is pulled, a week before launch?

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.

The gin, the city, the song and the search for the special colour of Seville

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.
