2020 MarCom Awards Spotlight: Keep Left

We’ll continue to feature some of this year’s most noteworthy MarCom Awards entries throughout the competition.

MarCom Awards Organization: Keep Left

Title of Entry: “Guide Dogs Australia Puppy Zoom ”
Category: Strategic Communications | Communications/Public Relations | 162c. Special Event ($175)

In a crowded news world, in the time of Covid, how do you capture the media’s attention and promote your message? Keep Left, an Australian marketing communications agency with offices in Sydney and Melbourne has a motto: develop narrative and content that connects with the head, while resonating with the heart. In a recent campaign, Keep Left connected all those dots. Their client wanted to raise awareness of International Guide Dogs Day…a recognition of canines who aid visually impaired people. For obvious reasons, in-person events were not possible. So the marketing communications agency went virtual on the world’s number one platform. Keep Left found the cutest puppy in Australia to serve as an ambassador. The puppy was named Zoom and the country was introduced to Zoom, wait for it, on Zoom. In depressing times, a cute dog goes a long way. By the time the campaign ended, almost 400 media outlets covered the event and 90 million people were reached.

The deadline for the 2020 MarCom Awards is October 22nd. Enter now, before it’s too late.
