AVA Winner Lynn University

Winner: Lynn Univervity
Title of Entry: #lynndebate Social Media Campaign
Location: Boca Raton, FL
Category: 3c.Social Campaign

Lynn University played a prominent role in the 2012 Presidential Campaign.  The Boca Raton, Florida university hosted the third and final debate between Pres. Barack Obama and challenger Mitt Romney.  The third debate was the most important for each candidate, especially for the President who faltered in the earlier exchanges.  Lynn University was in a unique position to increase branding and raise awareness, especially with 59 million viewers tuning in.  The administration utilized a social media campaign before, during, and after the debates to capitalize on the event.  Leveraging Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Flickr, Google+, Tumblr, foursquare, and Instagram, Lynn University reached out to the country and the world.  On the night of the debate, the school’s hashtage, #lynndebate, was trending top 3 nationwide and top 5 worldwide.  The total number of debate related tweets totaled 6.5 million.  In addition, the university produced 52 debate related videos and 2,000 debate photos.  Lynn University was only established in 1962 and has fewer than 2,000 undergraduates.  For a small school, the university scored big in its social campaign.

Winner: Mullen
Title of Entry: CENTURY 21 Moves Into SimCity  Social
Location: Boston, MA
Client: CENTURY 21
Category: 3c.Social Campaign

Boston based Mullen was looking to increase Century 21’s profile among consumers between the ages of 25-34. This coveted age group represents the largest share of homebuyers. How people shop for homes has drastically changed in recent years and Century 21 wanted an innovative way to tap into the seismic shift. Mullen created a digital campaign that integrated social media with the gaming community. Research shows that 81 million people play social games and that 27% of them are either buying homes or thinking about it. Mullen partnered with SimCity to put Century 21 in the game. Players could place Century 21 offices into their cities and win bonuses. Almost 200,000 gamers took advantage of the offer. The campaign also created a huge jump in Facebook likes and generated a number of media stories around the country.
