Describe the campaign/entry
More and more people are realizing that the more we use our technology together, the less we actually do together.
And for Shaw, Canada’s largest Telecommunications company - with over 10 million customers - this was a bit of a concern.
So for Shaw’s new brand campaign, we wanted to show people how technology can actually help provide true, meaningful togetherness - not just the superficial kind.
Instead of continuing to focus Shaw’s advertising on pricing and products that have the potential to pull people apart, we focused it on how their products can literally provide togetherness.
We thought: what if we could somehow use Shaw’s technology to get all 10 million customers to do something amazing together.
We brought our idea to life with Shaw’s new brand mantra: "Together is Amazing."

Describe how the campaign/entry was launched across each channel in the order of implementation
The campaign had two phases:

We launched with a mass campaign that spanned TV, Out of home, online, DM and a new brand website that was focused on actually facilitating togetherness.

Once people were aware of Shaw’s new positioning, we helped millions of Canadians do something amazing together – fill Canadian food banks. The goal was collecting 1 million pounds of food. We used our new website, mass advertising, Shaw vans, business partnerships and even a telethon to help get donations.

Give some idea of how successful this campaign/entry was with both client and consumer
We successfully filled Canadian food banks and exceeded our goal of 1 million pounds, raising over 2 million mounds of food – making it the most successful food drive in Canadian history.
