JUDGES’ COMMENTS — We thought this was a great, well presented campaign, that brought together strong audience numbers on Twitter, strong paid campaigns and engaging videos. The campaign delivered impressive results and was a clear winner. Well done!

Alpro, VMLY&R and Dorst & Lesser WINNER

Brits choosing to put plant-based in their tea shouldn’t have to compromise on taste nor on the experience. The wait is over with Alpro My Cuppa! In October and November 2020, we ran a campaign on Twitter to promote our new product launch in the United Kingdom with the objectives of creating mass product awareness, driving consideration and capturing conversions. We developed a full funnel strategic approach following a 3 stages phasing: tease & reveal, amplify and echo. We leveraged Twitter’s product offering to amplify the launch of My Cuppa by selecting four different placements, including a FirstView tweet. The campaign achieved above benchmark results, including a very strong reach on reveal day, and performed beyond expectation on qualitative KPls. We also successfully leveraged conversation through paid and organic activity resulting in a very high positive sentiment. Our Digital & Media Team is made up of a lean group of 8 talented individuals, whose work is not always fully grasped within the business due to uneven levels of digital knowledge. Winning the Global Social Media Awards would definitely boost internal visibility of our team, shed a light on the great work we do on a regular basis and thus obtain some well-deserved recognition.

OK

JUDGES’ COMMENTS — This was a brilliant campaign that made the most out of the Facebook tools that are available, and proved crucial given the limitations faced in terms of content and budget. The use of advanced methods of geo-targeting was impressive and especially the fact that this campaign is being used by three other councils.

Air Social & Surrey County Council WINNER

As the coronavirus crisis took hold in spring 2020 and Air Social was busy helping clients adapt, we identified a way our services could help local authorities in their attempts to limit the virus from spreading. Having delivered hugely successful digital marketing campaigns to boost ticket sales for clients in the events industry, Air Social recognised that the same methods could be implemented to help councils deliver their coronavirus test and trace communication strategy. We began working with Surrey County Council on a digital marketing campaign to trace, track and notifying people of localised outbreaks via social media and geotargeting. #KeepSurreySafe has enabled Surrey County Council to provide real-time updates and signpost residents in specific towns and villages to relevant information and guidance within minutes of any spike in cases occurring. The campaign was so successful, it has now also been rolled out across Devon and West Sussex and it is hoped that a similar approach will be adopted by local authorities to inform and educate residents about the vaccine roll outs available in their local area.

AM Battenhall for NHS England & NHS Improvement WINNER

As COVID-19 took hold in March 2020, Battenhall worked with NHS England and NHS Improvement to create a campaign that aimed to ensure NHS coronavirus safety messages engaged young adults in the UK. The critical objective was to explain how to stay safe, save lives and protect the NHS, by augmenting the government’s mainstream media campaign through newly created social content tailored to a specific group. In a two-week period, a highly innovative and interactive GIF campaign was created and activated through Instagram and TikTok, and was viewed over 33 million times. It was then shared through 100 influencers, representing some of the nation’s most trusted voices to reinforce the message, generating a total ‘opportunities to see’ (OTS) figure of more than 303 million. All of this was achieved on a budget of £0.

JUDGES’ COMMENTS — We thought this campaign was very strong and created phenomenal results, reach and engagement. especially given the budgets and time constraints. The campaign was highly innovative and we felt this campaign was an outright winner. Well done!

E Insider WINNER

The Insider News channel was launched in July of 2020, and already has over 22 million views and nearly 65,000 subscribers. The channel has been so successful, in part, because of how the videos break down complex issues in the news. We give our viewers first-hand accounts of major events as they unfold, and follow up with explainers on the how and why of those events. Unlike Twitter or Instagram, YouTube is suited for longform stories that really dive into the individuals and communities that shape American politics and life. People turn to the news section of YouTube to find information, educate themselves, and watch news coverage — and it’s our mission to be a reputable source.

JUDGES’ COMMENTS — We thought this was a brilliant, bespoke strategy completely tailored to YouTube with great results! The use of graphics and animation to bring the subject matter to life was fantastic. Congratulations!

33Seconds & Earthtopia WINNER

33Seconds is a creative communications agency that dived into the world of TikTok in 2020. We set up Earthtopia – an account for 16-24 year olds dedicated to addressing climate issues and providing sustainable solutions through light and humorous content that felt native to TikTok. Earthtopia went from 0 to 130k followers in 10 months and has gained 1.9M likes. Using an organic strategy that tapped into trends and TikTok challenges, we’ve had over 35 videos receive 100k+ views with our best achieving 4.1 million views. We’ve partnered with the UN, been invited to talks hosted by WWF and have officially been verified. TikTok has also invited us to their Creator Marketplace and Amplify program as well as featured us regularly on their Learn On TikTok series, in particular ‘C is for #ClimateChange’. To win this award would be the icing on the cake for all the hard work and effort that has gone into using TikTok for the good of the planet.

JUDGES’ COMMENTS — The agility, creativity and strength as a team came through really well in this entry. Their content is hyper niched for intended audiences and the platform, and achieved the set objectives. The results are great and they should be proud of their work.

Jungle Creations WINNER

Jungle Creations is a social-first publisher, owner and operator of some of the world’s most popular media brands on social that create and publish content across Snapchat, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and TikTok and have collectively amassed over 121 million followers. With over 15 million subscribers, our Snapchat shows aim to inspire, educate and have some fun with the Snapchat generation. It seems to work, with our shows reaching on average 55 million monthly unique viewers. Only 60 shows globally get more than 10 million uniques monthly, and four of them are produced by Jungle. Despite the challenges presented last year, we pushed forward with our investment in Snapchat, even launching two new shows in April in response to the shift in audience needs due to Covid-19. In 2020, we achieved 2.5 billion minutes of content viewed across our shows, our audience grew by 142%, and we increased the watch times across our shows by 32%. Snapchat became our largest individual revenue stream programmatically, generating £1.2 million in monthly revenue from the platform.

DHL Supply Chain WINNER

In a world of disruption and crisis, colleagues from around the world in the logistics and supply chain industry stepped up to play a key role in the Covid-19 pandemic. Hitting APAC first and quickly reaching Europe, DHL Supply Chain’s response was immediate, informative and assuring. “Connecting People – Improving lives” was not only our purpose but our calling. Using Linkedin as a primary social channel, we told our story in real time through our people from frontline to boardroom. We championed our industry, gave transparency to the issues at hand and shared with our customers and shareholders the facts as we had them. We showed how local efforts had global effects and our message to our customers was clear, we can help, let’s talk. The effort to make a personal connection was noticed and appreciated - our Net Promoter and loyalty scores from customers were the highest they have ever been in 2020. Winning this award, would give recognition to the 155,000 DHL Supply Chain colleagues who keep the world moving in these uncertain and wildly unpredictable times. That’s why we at DHL need to keep on delivering. Today. Tomorrow. And the day after that.

Chain Reaction & Dubai Opera

WINNER

When Covid-19 hit, it changed the world, and what was meant to be a busy season quickly became a very quiet and worrying time. As a major entertainment venue, Dubai Opera was faced with the challenge of maintaining a connection with its audience during the pandemic, despite he fact that all shows were cancelled. After reaching out to Chain Reaction for help, we proposed “From Home To Stage”, a unique social media campaign that would call on people to video their talents and share them with Dubai Opera via social media. To further inspire the audience, we collaborated with popular performers to hold live Instagram concerts to maintain viewer engagement. We are delighted to say that the campaign has performed phenomenally well. We have smashed our engagement targets, achieving over 500K in engagement and attracting over 800 entries, not to mentioned >3.3M impressions, >400K video views and >47K likes! Additionally, this campaign was recently awarded at the MENA Search Awards as the ‘Best Use of Social Media’ and ‘Most Viral Campaign’ 2020 which meant so much for every member of our team as the campaign is one that is very close to our hearts. We were humbled yet very proud of these achievements and are even more fuelled to keep striving for more success.

Reko Social & Rentokil PCI

WINNER

With Democratisation of Internet, Influencer marketing has become more relevant than ever. However, there is lack of visibility and data in this space. The objective for Rentokil PCI was to have Analysis, Monitoring, Execution and Audit of Influencer Marketing campaign. COVID-19 lockdowns in India in Q2 2020 impacted Rentokil PCI’s residential sales due to consumers safety concerns and social distancing even when Disinfection were categorized as essential services. Using Reko Social Influencer Software and data science to build a trusted influencer network, Influencer campaigns in Q3-Q4 helped in gaining trust from customers again and recovering the Cockroach Control Service revenue lost during lockdowns. (90% + recovery in sales in Q4!)

JUDGES’ COMMENTS — We thought this campaign demonstrated amazing creativity, outreach and communication during extraordinary times, and as such, delivered unbelievable ROI. A worthy winner – well done!

H OneFifty Consultancy & British Business Bank WINNER

British Business Bank exists to increase the supply of credit to UK SMEs. A consistent decline in applications for funding - despite research showing that if they do so, they’re far more likely to become high-growth businesses - was a concerning trend. Continuing to tell them this was not going to deliver results. ‘Don’t Grow It Alone’ was an exclusively social, behavioural change campaign aimed at SMEs – a completely new communications approach for the Bank, which ultimately saw 634 SME owners enquire about funding options direct from campaign content and smashed all KPIs set (engagements were 423% higher). It was grounded in data and behavioural science from the start, showing that the main barrier was attitudes towards finance rather than circumstance, meaning the true barriers could be directly tackled. It’s also just been named as the Government Communication Service’s campaign of the month as it “saw a complex communications challenge and came up with a good creative solution”.

JUDGES’ COMMENTS — We thought this was a well written entry demonstating clear strategy and a really solid impact! By leveraging social, it meant a complex issue was explained in an easy and creative way and more relatable for the audience! A clear winner for us – well done!

JUDGES’ COMMENTS — We thought this was a simple, yet highly effective campaign that knew what it had to do and achieved great reach! They have used the bushfires to educate people about climate change an how this affects us everyday. A very powerful campaign. Well done!

Tug & WWF International WINNER

WWF is the world’s leading environmental charity. Following the Amazon fires, the Australian bushfires of summer 2019-2020 gained global attention. People lost their homes, their livelihoods and their lives, and animals perished in their millions. The fires continued as a new disease outbreak was discovered in Wuhan. Disaster fatigue began to set in, just when Australia needed aid most to tackle the fires and provide care and support to people and wildlife. WWF approached Tug with a challenge: To raise vital funds for their Emergency Bushfire Appeal on social media. This was the first time Tug had appealed for donations on organic social. We used a cross-channel approach on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Our aim was to inspire hope rather than despair, to galvanise people to help. Our organic social posts reached 9,506,526 people, with an average engagement rate of 7% (over 3X the industry average). But most importantly for WWF and the Australian relief team, we exceeded our fundraising goals. By continuing to talk about the bushfires beyond the initial disaster, we raised awareness of the long-term impacts of climate-related disasters. The bushfires have become a springboard to encourage WWF’s audience to take action in other ways, such as by signing ongoing WWF petitions.

United Esports is proud to partner with Tampax to be the first creative media and marketing agency to bring feminine care messaging into the esports & gaming space. Women in gaming are a vastly under-served and under-appreciated audience. As a trusted innovation partner of Procter & Gamble, United Esports jumped at the chance to help Tampax achieve a first mover advantage within gaming, by leveraging a strong number of gaming personalities to create fun, relatable content that drove incredibly high-impact engagements.

N G I A MP Manifest & Hotels.com WINNER

Our research told us British millennials love to moan and, even more so, love to complain online so we decided to give our audience a safe space to rant or, more importantly, somewhere to banish the most hated things of 2020 - say hello to Hotel Room 101. The strategy was simple - Twitter is known as a place of culture and conversation and we have built the UK Hotels.com profile to be a creative platform for irreverent content and social commentary. We used both to unite our audience against 2020. Using a classic hotel theme aligned with the much-loved Room 101 format, we gave over our timeline to the Twitter community and built a social campaign that engaged, entertained and rewarded people for over 10 hours.

JUDGES’ COMMENTS — We absolutely loved this campaign! It’s creative and brave on a low budget, and it’s fantastic to see the pick up in key media too. Really great work. Congratulations!

Alpro WINNER

“Alpro’s story began in 1980 with an seemingly simple question: ‘What if the goodness of soya could be used to feed the planet’s population without the middle man [cow)?’ This idea flourished. The plant-based movement grew. And 40 years down the line Alpro is still pioneering the plant-based food revolution. 2019 was a key moment in our history as we upgraded our brand identity [logo, packaging, etc) and tone-of-voice, embracing a new core creative idea: GOOD FOR YOU! A platform to help us get our plant-based message to the masses, prompting everyone to embrace a more sustainable diet. We launched this new platform to the world in September 2019, coordinated from our central location in Belgium. A unique tour de force for our brand by setting up the biggest campaign until then, leveraging our in-house social media expertise to the max! Our Digital & Media Team is made up of a lean group of 9 talented individuals, whose work is not always fully grasped within the business due to uneven levels of digital knowledge. Winning the Global Social Media Awards would definitely boost internal visibility of our team, shed a light on the great work we do on a regular basis and thus obtain some well-deserved recognition.”

Tug & WWF International WINNER

COVID-19 originated in animals but jumped to humans. Destruction of the natural environment led to the pandemic outbreak and is increasing the likelihood of similar pandemics happening in future - but the general public are largely unaware of this. As the world’s leading environmental charity, WWF is in a unique position to educate and inform the public about the connection between the destruction of nature and pandemics such as COVID-19. WWF approached Tug to raise awareness of the link between ecocide and pandemics. Their goal was to reach as many people as possible and connect with them in an impactful way, driving them to sign a petition calling on global leaders to take action to prevent future pandemics. WWF had a finite budget for the campaign and asked for Tug’s recommendation on how to spend most efficiently, with the goal of driving 13,600 petition signatures. Tug created assets for and ran a highly reactive paid social media campaign on Facebook, Instagram and IG Stories which featured a video ad with three ad copy variations. Overall we achieved 43,325 petition signatures at a CPA of £0.39. We also achieved 236,767 link clicks with a strong CTR of 1.29%.

We’re all familiar with the ‘difficult second album’ syndrome. The ‘sophomore slump’. It’s what makes our paid social media campaign for medical negligence specialists Patient Claim Line (PCL) so notable: Hugely profitable for them. A case study in refinement for us. Having already enjoyed a ‘hit’ Facebook ads campaign in 18/19, PCL challenged us to match a doubling of campaign spend with a doubling of lead volume and lead value. Why wouldn’t you spend more to make more? We tested our approach and modelled an expanded campaign and projected that ‘yes’ we could double returns. But we didn’t just double returns. We increased the value of leads generated YoY +215.55% to £28.04M. Big numbers. Business building numbers. Life-changing numbers. How did we do it? • B y using appropriate paid social tactics such as lead gen forms, WCAs (Website Custom Audiences) and lookalike audiences developed from robust seed audiences; • T hrough embedded collaboration with the clients’ internal team to define lead quality and what would consistently deliver it; • W ith deep audience investigation and continual refinement of our strategy to create an ever-expanding pool of ever more suitable prospects. It’s a success story that winning this award would allow us to share. That diminishing returns are far from a given. That with the right research, strategy and application incredible things can happen!

Stand Out Digital & Akt London

WINNER

Stand Out Digital is a digital media agency founded in 2014 with the goal of being an end-to-end provider of digital marketing services for start-ups and SMEs. As more and more customers’ journey start online, we count on a team of seasoned biddable professionals to support our clients’ digital marketing needs, relying on three core values: integrity, innovation, and grit. After running a successful crowdfunding campaign in late 2018, and a few attempts to venture into digital advertising with uneven results, AKT got in touch with Stand Out Digital to manage their paid social activity Up to that point, paid social campaigns across Facebook and Instagram consisted of low investment, irregular optimisations towards CPA and an overall ROAS below profitability levels (established at 3). With a full funnel approach, from mid-September until the end of December we managed to increase ROAS up to 4.13, crucially upscaling business volume (purchase value increased by 177% compared to the first 9 and a half months of 2020). Ours is a relatively young agency with a small but passionate team devoted to serve our clients. Winning this award would provide a seal of quality to our work and help us growing as a business.

Marketers are under more pressure than ever to prove that paid media is contributing to the bottom line of the business, and not just delivering marketing KPIs.

Elizabeth Morales Insider WINNER

Elizabeth Morales is a great example of why it pays off to be nimble and innovative in this industry — her creativity knows no bounds. With a finger on the pulse of what’s trending, she is always eager to weed out outdated strategies and experiment with new, inventive ones. Her most recent win has been leading the charge on Insider Inc.’s distribution efforts on TikTok, a move she proposed when post people even knew about the platform. Thanks to her work, TikTok is now a major social media platform for Insider, bringing in revenue and ensuring our presence there as an essential asset to our brand. Elizabeth deserves to win this award because she embodies what a great social media strategist is — someone who is creative, flexible, and willing to take a leap in order to meet audiences where they are.

JUDGES’ COMMENTS — We were very impressed with this individuals ability to take risks, create a strategy and work hard to make the implementation a great success! She sounds like a remarkable young marketer and should be proud of what she has acheived. Congratulations!

Tourism New Zealand Social Media Team WINNER

Tourism New Zealand is the organisation responsible for marketing New Zealand to the world as a tourist destination. The major platform we use to do this is the 100% Pure New Zealand marketing campaign, a campaign that has evolved over the past 20 years to make New Zealand one of the world’s most well-respected and wellknown tourism brands. As a newly formed team within the organisation, we’ve been consistently delivering and achieving above and beyond. Despite the tremendous impact of Covid on the Tourism Industry, the Social team at Tourism New Zealand has never shied away from big, bold ideas, even at a time when our border is closed and international tourists are unable to visit. We thrived in 2020 with the most innovative thinking, approach, and social formats to make sure the brand stays relevant and remains top of mind for our audience by building a genuine relationship with our social followers through on-going conversation and engagement. It would mean so much for our small team to win an award for the work we do to enrich New Zealand.

Y Made By Giants WINNER

Made By Giants™ combines brand and communications to help tech-powered brands reach the next big thing. Our services range from branding, to PR, to social media and digital marketing campaigning, powering bold and brave growth stories for tomorrow’s tech giants. We were born in 2020, a memorable year for us and for the world. Our team of seven giants (with another about to come aboard) have developed amazingly over the last six months. We have a growing client base of upcoming tech brands with nine clients based across Europe, the US and APAC. We are thrilled to have committed revenues of £350,000 with a healthy new business pipeline in the offing. Our client partners are attracted to our specialist experience, energy, bravery and giant creative ideas. We work with tech-powered brands - brands that are spear-heading the fourth industrial revolution, digitising our society and building a sustainable future for all of humanity. Launching an agency when the world has turned upside down is hard enough. But launching an agency without an external backer, angel investor and seed capital (while the world stays upside down) is harder still. We are giant underdogs, going from zero to £275,000 in the last six months of 2020 alone. This award would be dedicated to all our giants and client partners for believing in us.
