Summary of the Campaign
THE CHALLENGE
Launch Utilisima in Bulgaria – the first TV channel for women.
Raise awareness about the new TV channel before its start.
THE STRATEGY
Inspire and show women they have equal rights for the TV in spite of the male oriented shows and programs.
THE SOLUTION
1000 women in the most unexpected place, symbol of male entertainment – the stadium.
During the most important derby in the Bulgarian football calendar.
1000 women in pink t-shirts establishing a new TV order.

The Situation
Utilisima is not the only female oriented channel introduced to Bulgarian viewers. They have already witnessed: FOX Life – series and sitcoms, Fiesta – culinary channel, TLC – life lessons.
But Utilisima is the first female channel from start to finish. The actual problem is that the remote control is usually situated in the hands of their boyfriends/husbands who switch only between the sports news and the Japanese action flicks.
So it is commonly assumed that men have the ultimate right over the remote control.
Until now…

The Goal
To announce that Utilisima – the first real female TV channel – is on the way.
Raise awareness about the new TV channel before its start.

The Strategy
Inspire and show women they have equal rights for the TV in spite of the male oriented shows and programs.
About a month before the launch of the channel we organized an event that would turn into a massive viral. The whole event is not only about attracting attention – it is also a statement about Utilisma and its beliefs. Stadiums are the coveted territory of men. When we put about thousand women in there we symbolically claim that women have their right to be entertained and they should have their own time and space for amusement. And that is Utilisma.
We use the viral event on the stadium to spread the word and raise awareness about Utilisima.

Execution
1000 women in the most unexpected place, symbol of male entertainment – the stadium.
During the most important derby in the Bulgarian football calendar – the match between CSKA and Levski – we filled a whole section with 1000 women.
On a signal all of them removed their jackets and revealed pink t-shirts. With a colourful choreography they set up a sign Utilisima.
During the part in which the girls set up the sign "Utilisima" the fans of CSKA started a fight with the police squads. This collision took some attention away off the girls but at the same time they felt more united and set up a beautiful contrast with the rioting crowds.
