WARC Media Awards 2018: Effective Channel Integration winners announced
Droga5 wins Grand Prix for Tourism Australia's Dundee campaign

LONDON, Jan 15, 2019 - (ACN Newswire) - EasyJet in the United Kingdom, Gillette in Israel, Harley-Davidson in Canada, Heinz Beanz in Australia and Maybelline in China are among the 12 winning brands of the Effective Channel Integration category, WARC Media Awards 2018.

Award-winning examples of how sophisticated communications architecture has helped boost campaign effectiveness hail from a wide range of markets and cover a variety of sectors, including FMCG, travel, telecoms, soft drinks and media/entertainment.

One Grand Prix, three Golds, six Silvers, two Bronzes and three Special Awards for particular areas of expertise have been awarded by the jury panel chaired byLaurent Aliphat - Head of Media, Renault.

EMEA leads the way with six winning case study papers, followed by APAC with four and the Americas with two.

Droga5 was awarded the Grand Prix, as well as the POE Award, for Tourism Australia's campaign Dundee - The son of a legend returns home to attract US high-value travellers to the country.

Although long-haul travel from the US has grown by 11% in recent years, Australia's share of US tourism stands at only 1.3%. To increase this, the agency created a promotional campaign for the new Dundee film, featuring a roll call of Australia's biggest stars and promoted it on social media, digital and OOH, culminating in the 'official movie trailer' being shown during Super Bowl LII. The campaign led to an 83% increase in intent to book and yielded a 6:1 ROI for earned coverage.

Commenting on the Grand Prix-winning campaign, jury member Emily Fairhead-Keen, Strategy Partner, Wavemaker, said: "It broke down boundaries between advertising and culture in a way that was really interesting and ballsy. It had a great tease and reveal and it was very well integrated too."
