HONG KONG, Apr 25, 2018 - (Media OutReach) - Winners of the 16th annual "MTR Advertising The Best of the Best Awards 2017" have been announced at the presentation ceremony held recently at the Conrad Hotel. One of the most celebrated annual industry events co-organised by MTR Corporation and JCDecaux Transport, presented accolades totaling 27 awards in 17 categories to the most outstanding works of advertisers, media and creative agencies selected from thousands of campaigns displayed on the MTR* advertising media platform in 2017.
The "Nike - YOU CAN'T GUARANTEE A WIN, BUT YOU CAN GUARANTEE A FIGHT" campaign was crowned the biggest winner of the year by snatching multiple awards, which include the top accolade "Best of the Best -- Creative Platinum Award", and "Best Use of Integrated Media Gold Award" and "Best Poster Campaign Silver Award", as well as two public voting awards "My Favourite Campaign Gold Award" and "Youth's Favourite Campaign Gold Award".
For Nike's award-winning campaign, Nike Hong Kong's media agency Mindshare Hong Kong and creative agency Wieden + Kennedy & Secret Tour epitomized a bold slogan "You can't guarantee a win, but you can guarantee a fight. It's time for us to stand up and fight back!" by featuring Hong Kong's Wonder Kid, the unbeaten professional boxer Rex Tso Sing-yu and leveraging the cool and powerful black and white visuals to dominate the whole track of MTR Central Station. MTR passengers were strongly impressed with the fighting spirit and lasting effects of the campaign, making it the undisputable winner of Hong Kong people's most favorite MTR advertising campaign of the year.
As the first-ever Virtual Reality experience in MTR Stations, the Whirlpool "The Journey of Thrilling Sound" VR Experience Campaign has won not only "Best of the Best -- Use of Media Platinum Award", but also the Silver Award of both "Best Use of Integrated Media" and "Best Interactive Campaign"! To promote the launch of Whirlpool's Smart Silence Washer, Whirlpool (Hong Kong) and its media agency ZOO Allies have created another space at the Experiential Zone at MTR Hong Kong Station for MTR passengers to enter virtually and experience a scary yet fun game as if they were in the environment of noisy washing machines. The winning campaign has successfully interacted with MTR passengers and targeted users through advanced VR technology.
"Canon Digital Campaign" was voted Gold Award winner of both "My Favourite Digital Video" and "Youth's Favourite Digital Video". Canon's winning digital video showing in Digital Motion Network has found immense popularity among MTR passengers and viewers of all ages with its light-heartedness and subtlety -- a young, carefree lady looking for the beauty in her eye, and a catchy tune to express "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. You can be your beholder's eye!" Which has effectively communicated Canon camera's intrinsic benefits to viewers.
All the winning campaigns have not only inspired the minds of the professionals but also created interactive and experiential excitement and joy for MTR passengers beyond their imagination. Thanks to the ever-innovating MTR advertising platform, which is perfectly conveyed in this year's Award theme of "Fly Beyond The Limit"!
In its endeavour to innovate the out-of-home (OOH) media industry and market, on the celebratory occasion of the 16th annual MTR Advertising Best of The Best Awards, JCDecaux Transport has proudly announced the launch of a revolutionary, audience-targeting OOH media planning system developed by JCDecaux Group.
Mr. Stephen Wong, CEO of JCDecaux Greater China, said: "MTR advertising is Hong Kong's premier outdoor media platform, not only for its reach and popularity, but also for its innovativeness and creativity. We are now on the verge of a major breakthrough in the digital-out-of-home arena with the launch of a revolutionary new media planning platform which will provide more comprehensive audience measurement, more precise micro-targeting and contextualisation of ad contents, in what we call a 4D strategy, Digitalization, Data, Distribution and Dynamic Contents.
