2012 CSR Awards: Product Design/Redesign


Winner: OSRAM SYLVANIA and Weber Shandwick – Staying in the Spotlight


With the federally mandated phase out of Edison’s 1879 invention, the light bulb, which went into effect in 2012, Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) are now front and center. OSRAM SYLVANIA, the North American operation of lighting manufacturer Osram GmbH, joined with Weber Shandwick to inform the public about the upcoming national light bulb phase out and educate consumers on current and next-generation lighting options while branding the company and its superior technological offerings as the go-to brand for lighting. Focusing its efforts around Lightfair International, a leading lighting trade show, the campaign featured the launch of a 100W replacement bulb, promoted as “best in class,” and was bolstered by a targeted media campaign. In addition, OSRAM SYLVANIA engaged global CEOs with peers and key influencers at a thought leadership event during the trade show. The company’s efforts at Lightfair International generated 380 stories globally, with a Yahoo! News story on the new bulb generating 27,000 Facebook recommendations and 520 retweets. —SVC
