Anyone who has ever read an annual corporate report knows how dry and lifeless they can be…a series of serious statements from chief officers and board members coupled with very dry facts. It’s good information for investors, but not very exciting to read. Uralkali is a Russian mining operation producing and exporting a variety of essential minerals that are vital to manufacturing and commerce. Their 2020 report, “Resilience and Progress” is a creative endeavor blending unusual font styles with artistic graphics. The layout helps paint a “year-in-the-life” of a company in an entertaining and informative style.

Category: Strategic Communications | Communications/Public Relations | 161c. Social Media Campaign ($185)

How to secure peace has always been a question before the United Nations. So is there a solution? The UN doesn’t have a definitive answer, but it recently implemented a public relations campaign that it hopes will spread the possibility. The UN targeted the youth in various countries. Instead of youth being the victims or the perpetrators of war and violence, the UN tasked young people with being ambassadors of peace.

Throughout May 2021, the UN populated social media channels with engaging visuals, playful GIFs, entertaining word games, youthful and dynamic graphics, videos and vlogs, and inspiring quote cards. The UN also hosted live discussions and Instagram take overs, launched a brand-new account on TikTok, and published stories from young people narrating their experience in conflict-ridden zones and how they make a difference in the lives of their communities.

Overall the campaign generated six million impressions, significantly increasing engagements and views across the board.
