The Nudge Awards are the world’s first award scheme for Behavioural Science. We won the only Gold prize awarded of all the 2015 worldwide entries in the retail category for our work on the DAS Legal Expenses Welcome Letter.

Grand Prix – Revolution Awards, 2006, at Ogilvy

Cisco LiveCast B2B

The first ever Grand Prix win for OgilvyOne in digital category, globally. The best-of-the-best work/winner-of-winners, awarded to only one of the category winners in any one year of all the global submissions.

“Cisco System’s agency, Ogilvy Interactive, also went home with two trophies – the Revolution Award and Best B2B Service – for the Live Webcast. The campaign, which involved live footage of Cisco experts being streamed directly into banner ads, was singled out for the Revolution Award, which is given to the best winning entry overall, for showing enormous innovation.

It was a great example of how the technological and niche-targeting benefits of interactive channels can be combined, particularly in the broadband age.

Thoroughly deserved“ Susie Harwood, Revolution UK

“…Saatchi & Saatchi devised a self-selection system that also saved the agency £12,000 on fulfillment packs… After completing all the usual details, [applicants] faced a series of unpredictable timed challenges… Almost 1,900 students went to the site… only 60 got through all the challenges. The system was designed to identify candidates with determination and the ability to think ‘outside the box’. ‘Cracking results, and great use of the medium’, the judges enthused. ‘It showed a clear understanding of the audience, and their willingness to try and try again to get into Saatchis’.“

For the Canadian Tourism Commission co-wrote the idea for “Upgrade to Canada”, where German travelers were given the chance to ditch their existing tickets (to anywhere, for which they’d already paid) and upgrade to an amazing Canadian all-paid holiday.
