Why is this work relevant for Media?

85% of the Turkey population spend 350 minutes watching TVC per day. TV series are the most consumed TV content both by the Turkish society in general and our target audience in particular. ‘Kadın’ (Woman) is one of the most popular TV series among our target audience.


Situation 85% of the Turkey population spend 350 minutes watching TVC per day. TV series are the most consumed TV content both by the Turkish society in general and our target audience in particular. ‘Kadın’ (Woman) is one of the most popular TV series among our target audience. Brief The number one competitor of Finish who had been rapidly gaining power, set off on a deeper bond with the localization strategy. Unfortunately, this situation led Finish to lose its leadership in consumer perception against its closest competitor. The brand had to sit on the leaderboard again in the hearts of the target audience. So, we needed a communication that focuses not only on functional benefit but also on emotional benefit. Objectives To create an emotional bond with the target audience through the most loved TV series. To increase loyalty and regain the market leader position.

Describe the creative idea / insights (30% of vote)

We decided to use Bahar, the lead character of the TV series… a character that Turkish women can identify with and is really fond of her. We positioned Finish as a brand that supports women, recognizes them, values them and tries to make their lives easier, thus closing the emotional gap between us and the target audience by going beyond performance communication. To appeal to the audiences, instead of integrating the product we decided to integrate a smile. We made an ad which is an continuation of the scene.

Describe the strategy (20% of vote)

The main character of the series “Bahar” certainly does not have an easy life. She is trying to survive alone with two kids with very limited money and she is also suffering from health problems. Especially in difficult economic conditions like the one Turkey is experiencing at the moment, our target audience feels a deep connection with her, and is inspired by the strength and hope she has despite these difficulties. The only thing the viewer wanted was to see her happy. The family is really poor and she did not even have a dishwasher. We thought this might be a good opportunity for Finish to get involved. But our golden rule was to respect the original content and be as native as possible and make sure that our presence as the brand did not ruin the target audience’s favorite show for them.

Describe the execution (20% of vote)

On November 13, a brand-free communication was launched with 3 influencers. Influencer's tweets are broadcasted as TV band in real-time in related scenes of the series. One of the Influencers tweeted that the main character Bahar needs a dishwasher. That tweet was also broadcasted as a TV band. We also answered this tweet as Finish, and we announced that we had a surprise for Bahar on Twitter and TV band. On November 20, a dishwasher was given as a gift to Bahar by her stepfather. Our integration ad became online just after that scene. In the ad, we see her smiling for the first time because she could have time for herself instead of washing the dishes. Just after the integration, we thanked the stepfather, who gave the machine as a gift, on the Finish Twitter account. And this tweet went online as TV band in that episode.

List the results (30% of vote)

• 43% increase in Finish Quantum sales. That way we could maintain market leadership. • 400 bps increase in top of mind brand awareness • 600 bps increase in the ‘brand I love the most’ score in dishwashing detergent category. • While the competitor brand scores decreased in trial, usage and frequency scores; for Finish the trial increased 3 pts, usage increased 5 pts and frequency increased 1 point. • Best loved brand score increased by 12%. • Finish took back the leadership from its competitor and my lifestyle brand score increased to 70% • Loyalty increased from 37 to 44. • 66% of the people who watch the ‘Kadın’ series believe that Finish is a brand that makes women’s lives easier. • 74% of the people who watch the ‘Kadın’ series believe that Finish is a brand that values women.

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.
