2011 Digital PR Awards – Public Affairs Campaign

Co-winner: Euro RSCG Worldwide PR – Campaign Money Watch ‘They Win U Lose’

With partner Campaign Money Watch, Euro RSCG fought aggressively to reinvigorate the core Obama voter base before the 2010 midterm elections. Focusing on six states with closely contested Senate elections, every tactic was designed to generate diverse opportunities for coverage; these tactics included articles, op-eds, bylines, blog posts, online advertising, viral assets and social media. Celebrities including Wyclef Jean and actress Beth Broderick blogged and tweeted for the cause on outlets ranging from the campaign’s Web site to CNN.com and Huffington Post to regional publications. The two-week media blitz drew 1.05 million unique visitors to the home page and earned 130 online media placements. —BM
