Title of Entry: “Deadpool Gets All the Likes”
Category: 224c. Social Media Campaign

When Deadpool hit the movie theaters earlier this year, it shattered box office records. When it was to be released to the home audience, the question to Fox Home Entertainment was how to maintain that momentum.

The movie is an action-packed, irreverent and humorous adaption of a comic book series. What made the movie successful on the screen was put into play for the promotion.

Tapping into social media, Fox sold the Digital HD and Blu-ray release through clever trailers, face-changing graphics and social interaction starring, of course, Ryan Reynolds. With 200 million social impressions and an extensive organic media coverage, Deadpool is Fox’s best performing HD title.

If you want to people to read an article, then you must tell a story and do it well. Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle has many stories to tell from its patients. Some are happy stories, some not. Others are some place in between.

Diane Mapes is a writer and cancer survivor. Her well-crafted writing in a particular piece speaks of a subject rarely broached that deserves a forum — sex after cancer.

The subhead explains why the piece exists in the first place: “From impotence to ‘chemopause’ to missing body parts, treatment side effects can mess with patients’ sex lives — why don’t we talk about it more?”

While the winners for the 2016 MarCom Awards won’t be announced for a little bit, we’re showcasing select entries that stand out. Keep checking back to see if your work will be highlighted.

MarCom Awards Organization: University of California, Davis
Location: Davis, California
Title of Entry: “Sexual Violence Awareness and Education Campaign”
Category: 320c. Other — Integrated Marketing Campaign

Sexual violence is one of the most pressing issues on colleges campuses. University of California, Davis, decided to meet the problem head on with an expansive integrated marketing program. The program targeted almost every aspect of student life with a mixed medium of banners, coffee sleeves, napkin holder signage, videos, T-shirts, web resources, and a speaker. The university wanted to get the word out and to make sure everyone heard it.

Here’s some behind-the-scenes info from Andrew McDaniel, a campaign specialist for Student Affairs Marketing and Communications (SAMC) at UC Davis:

“A recent Association of American Universities Campus Survey on Sexual Assault and Sexual Misconduct shows that 1 in 6 undergraduate students and 1 in 14 graduate and professional school students have experienced some type of non-consensual sexual contact since entering college. That’s why UC Davis launched the Sexual Violence Awareness and Education campaign in November 2015.

“Ongoing student, faculty and staff input as well as campuswide collaboration have contributed to the campaign’s success on our campus. While Student Affairs Marketing and Communications (SAMC) leads the day-to-day efforts, we work with colleagues throughout campus to maximize messaging, reach and resources. Most importantly, we collaborate directly with students through focus groups and internships to ensure that the campaign is current and reaching students in a meaningful way.

“Using feedback from student focus groups, we launched a series of Snapchat-inspired videos through campus social media, which received nearly 40,000 views.”

Trade shows can be an assault on the senses – bright lights, music, digital displays, geometric walls, rainbows of color– the list goes on and one. To stand out in a giant exhibit hall takes creativity and sharp design.

New York’s MC² more than met the challenge at a world renowned print and paper exhibit held in Dusseldorf, Germany, for client Ferag AG headquartered in Zurich, Switzerland. Ferag specializes in the development and manufacture of conveying and processing systems for the graphic industry and direct mailing.

At the Drupa Exhibition, MC² created a 15,000-square-foot LED canopy, which is the size of a soccer pitch, that provided a visual background for the presentation of the Ferag equipment, a live printing system that wrapped around the exhibit. Farag CEO Jürg Möckli called the display a “masterpiece.” See for yourself.
