Winner: MWW Group – Nikon Film Festival Social Campaign Championing D-SLR Video
Leading into 2010, MWW Group helped Nikon plan and launch a completely new kind of film festival—one that relied entirely on social media. This initiative earns our WOW! Award, which celebrates an original, creative approach to the use of digital channels. The agency selected Nikon spokesperson Ashton Kutcher, along with actor Rainn Wilson and Internet star iJustine, to both judge and promote the festival. The judges shared their personal videos shot on the Nikon D-SLR camera to guide the entrants. Winners were announced on iJustine’s popular YouTube channel. This effort to reinforce for consumers the Nikon brand’s capacity for digital innovation yielded great success. The festival received 2,200+ video submissions, NikonFestival.com received 500,000+ hits and the campaign grabbed 121+ million digital media impressions. —SP
