Category: 131c. Consumer Engagement

You’ve heard of a spokesperson. How about a spokespoon? The Crossroads Community Soup Kitchen and Food Pantry is on a mission to end hunger in New York City. To draw attention to the problem, the nonprofit partnered with Saatchi & Saatchi Wellness in a consumer engagement campaign.

On the New York streets you see many things but rarely a giant spoon. Residents could not pass up the opportunity to pose with the spoon, which had engravings encouraging people to buy tickets to a fundraising dinner. The pictures were posted on their own personal social media sites as well as those of Crossroads to raise awareness of the event and sell tickets. See more pictures here>>

Location: Turkey
Title of Entry: “Boxes Full of Happiness”
Category: 71c. Communication/Marketing Campaign

Malls in Turkey are very popular and competitive. Each year we get entries for a wide variety of promotions and games. Many of the marketing efforts use social responsibility as a means to attract attention.

Here is an entry from Espark Shopping Center in Eskişehir, Turkey, that caught the judges’ attention. In an ingenious campaign, the mall let shoppers choose gifts for poor students in a nearby village that would increase their interests in arts and sports.

Unbeknownst to the shoppers and kids, the gifts would be given instantly with the interaction being shown live on a large television screen in the mall. The ensuing publicity reached millions in a variety of social and traditional media platforms.

Title of Entry: “Know Your Lemons Breast Health Education”
Category: 45. Illustration/Graphic Design

With all the breast cancer awareness efforts throughout the country, it can be difficult for a specific message or organization to stand out. Strong creative visuals are key to grabbing attention, and the “Know Your Lemons” campaign by Worldwide Breast Cancer has done just that—reaching 166 million in January alone.

The charity’s design-led approach removes the difficult communication barriers around breast cancer to inform more powerfully, setting a new standard for awareness on an impressively global scale. Who knew lemons could take the bitter topic of cancer and turn it into a sweet metaphor for saving lives?
