Campaign of the Month March: Have a break: Greenpeace vs KitKat

Posted by Marc van Gurp | 7-04-2010 19:53 | Category: Awards, Campaign of the Month, Environment

The Osocio bloggers choose the best campaign every month. At the end of the year we will have twelve great campaigns from which we will choose the Campaign of the Year.
The Campaign of the Month of February is no surprise: Have a break: Greenpeace vs KitKat.

From a creative point of view the video isn’t a winner but the campaign from Greenpeace causes an enormous amount of media attention. And as told by a Greenpeace campaign manager to Osocio: “It’s been amazing. It’s almost like they’re [Nestlé] working *for* us…”

In case you missed it, Nestlé made some devastating mistakes. According to Greenpeace Nestlé lied about replacing the Indonesian company Sinar Mas as a supplier of palm oil. YouTube deleted the video after complaints of Nestlé. And they had some troubles about fake Nestlé logo’s used on their Facebook page.

Campaign of the Month February: Zero Rupee Notes

Posted by Marc van Gurp | 6-03-2010 23:52 | Category: Activism, Awards, Campaign of the Month, Culture, Design, Government, Human rights, Politics

The Osocio bloggers choose the best campaign every month. At the end of the year we will have twelve great campaigns from which we will choose the Campaign of the Year.
The Campaign of the Month of February is without any doubt the Zero Rupee Notes campaign from 5thpillar. Almost every blogger voted this campaign as favourite.
See the post here.

“One such story was our earlier case about the old lady and her troubles with the Revenue Department official over a land title. Fed up with requests for bribes and equipped with a zero rupee note, the old lady handed the note to the official. He was stunned. Remarkably, the official stood up from his seat, offered her a chair, offered her tea and gave her the title she had been seeking for the last year and a half to obtain without success.”

Campaign of the Month January: Aides

Posted by Marc van Gurp | 8-02-2010 22:27 | Category: Awards, Campaign of the Month, Health, Osocio

From now on we will choose the best campaign every month according to the Osocio bloggers. At the end of the year we will have twelve great campaigns from which we will choose the Campaign of the Year.
I’m currently working on a rating tool meant for you. It’s because we love to hear from you, your choice isn’t necessarily ours.

The campaign of January came in loud and clear. It got the most votes from us: Aides - Graffiti, the great video made by TBWA\Paris for the French Aids awareness organization Aides.

A second place in January for three other campaigns:
- Victims declaration of Human Rights
- Hoax: 2028 The Movie - It Finally Ends
- Embrace life - always wear your seatbelt

Is this eating disorder ad too sexy?

It’s a serious question. This woman has the typical idealized body of a model, and despite the scary body painting, the portrayal is undeniably drawing attention to her curves and bare skin. When I think about eating disorders, I try to imagine looking in the mirror and seeing a funhouse…
