2011 Digital PR Awards – Digital PR Campaign: Less Than $100K

Winner: The Axis Agency – #Chevycrawls Takes South Florida by Storm

To introduce a new lineup of Chevrolet cars to the South Florida region, the Axis Agency used local influencers and social media (pictured) to create a fresh and unique brand experience for communities. The Axis team partnered up with Craig Agranoff—blogger and creator of worstpizza.com—to stage a “Chevy Pizza Crawl.” After holding a contest on Twitter, 20 winners were selected to eat pizza and drive around in Chevy cars. The campaign has been so successful that Axis currently has a wait-list for other top bloggers vying for their own Chevy Crawls. —SP
