The longer they're here (girl)/Single nonprofit

Agency: Lavender*
Client: Youth Off the Streets

With more than 100,000 children living on the streets in Australia, nonprofit organization Youth Off the Streets wanted to increase awareness of youth homelessness and prompt donations. The charity launched an outdoor ad campaign targeted consumers that featured life-size, die-cut posters of kids placed in urban locations. “The longer they're here” street posters were a metaphor for what happens to children on the street: they became ragged, torn, sunbleached and defaced, and they disappeared over time. The campaign attracted national press, radio and international online coverage. A total of $92,000 Australian was received, which was enough to provide hot meals to more than 200 kids every night for six months. Online donations increased exponentially when compared to pre-campaign.

Throw us a bone/Single nonprofit

Agency: M&C Saatchi/Mark
Client: Sydney Dogs and Cats Home

Struggling to spur donations in a weak economy and recruit volunteers, Sydney Dogs and Cats Home sought a standout campaign. The charity ran an outdoor campaign around a character named Frankie the Wonderdog that enabled consumers to donate $5 by mobile phone and be rewarded with a trick. On a billboard near Sydney's Customs House, Frankie hounded passersby to “throw us a bone” in the form of an SMS message in return for an immediate on-screen trick. Eight tricks encouraged repeat donations. In three days, 1,327 bones' worth of donations were made, and  17.4% threw bones two or more times. The nonprofit also saw a 600% increase in new volunteers, and 25% of dogs needing homes were adopted.

Also placed bronze in the Ambient/Guerrilla category.

Skill tester/Single consumer

Agency: DDB Group, Melbourne
Client: Parkinson's Disease Victoria

Rigidness and shaking associated with Parkinson's disease make everyday tasks difficult. Parkinson's Disease Victoria created a crane-type arcade game that picks up objects to enable consumers to experience the lack of physical control brought on by the disease. Games were filled with household objects such as milk cartons and TV remotes, and it was impossible to pick up anything. The headline was “Parkinson's makes easy things hard.” It placed the games around Melbourne, and every game played raised $1. In the first 12 hours alone, more than $5000 was collected.
