Describe the brief/objective of the direct campaign.
The brief was to highlight Stella Artois sponsorship of the Cannes film festival by getting people to apply to win a “money can’t buy” experience at the film festival - 1st class flights, helicopter transfers, a suite at the Carlton, premiers and after parties and your own yacht.

Explain why the creative execution was relevant to the product or service.
To express the uniqueness of the prize from a simple ‘win tickets to…’ we decided to give away someone else’s tickets, a person of great notoriety and respect. We created a character, Jacques d’Azur, a highflying legend of the Cannes film festival for over 60 years. And then we killed him. So what was a ‘win tickets’ competition, became an ‘inherit Jacques d’Azur’s weekend at the Cannes Film Festival.’

Describe the creative solution to the brief/objective with reference to the projected response rates and desired outcome.
