Cultural/Context information for the jury

Lotteries´ campaigns focus on showing the luxurious life people could possibly gain. This strategy pushes people to play only when these images come in front of their eyes. But life is very different. It is full of duties and boring things to carry on, and it is rather rare that people experience traveling with helicopters or sailing on a yacht. Thus, to be more effective, West Lotto changes the strategy to change the people´s point of view. West Lotto points at the life people could lose instead, because this is the life people live every single second. This way any single duty or boring thing is a real reminder and pusher to go and play West Lotto.

Dreamy and slightly surreal, Ice Skaters for Ikea from CZAR Brussels

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 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.
