2011 Digital PR Awards – Video

Winner: Kronos Inc. – Celebrating Working Women: International Women’s Day 2011

To mark the 100th anniversary of International Women’s Day (March 8, 2011), workforce management company Kronos created an animated video celebrating the achievements of women in the workplace. The challenge was to do it in a respectful way, without over-selling Kronos, says Ken Volk, Kronos’ creative director and project leader. With that in mind, Kronos kept the branding understated. In addition, Kronos produced both English- and French-language versions. Kronos pushed the video to key media outlets; the video was promoted on YouTube’s home page on International Women’s Day. —SP
