Describe the campaign/entry
Deutsche Telekom’s “Life is for Sharing” campaign is about creating real moments so amazing that people just have to share them.
We had to create an event that their core audience across Europe would love to get involved in, create the biggest and best buzz to date, raise brand awareness and push products across 8 European markets.
We brought together an international pop star and their fans to make their next music video. Katy Perry’s popularity made her a perfect fit with the target audience.
Katy starred in an integrated campaign offering her fans in 8 European countries the chance to feature in her official video for 'Firework'.
The lyrics formed the perfect basis for a campaign competition entry mechanic, as participants shared their spark (talent) by submitting user generated content for their chance to win.
Ultimately 250 winners went to Budapest for 5 days to take part in Katy’s video.

Describe how the campaign/entry was launched across each channel in the order of implementation
The best 250 entrants were chosen by Katy, the agency, and her fans.
The key winners shared their experiences and pushed products in local market advertising campaigns.
We created a social network site so 250 winners could bond before the shoot.
The winners descended on Budapest for 5 days for the video shoot. The key winners were filmed on their journeys to the shoot and featured in a 3 minute longform commercial that sat next to Katy’s ‘Firework’ video on her YouTube channel.
