Global creative network, MullenLowe Group was awarded the Grand Prix in the PR category for Unilever’s Lifebuoy campaign ‘Chamki – The Girl From The Future’, at this year’s Spikes Asia Festival held from September 19 – 22nd in Singapore. Collectively, the MullenLowe Group network took home 12 awards: 1 Grand Prix award, 7 Silver awards, and 4 Bronze awards for Unilever client brands Lifebuoy, Clear, and Breeze, as well as for clients 7-Eleven, China Telecom, and PETA. MullenLowe Group is also parent company Interpublic Group’s (IPG) top performing network in terms of awards won this year.
‘Chamki – The Girl From The Future’, is a global collaboration from agencies MullenLowe Lintas Group (India), MullenLowe Singapore, and MullenLowe SSP3 (Colombia). The campaign includes the delivery of a powerful piece of content that is part of the ongoing #HelpAChildReach5 effort, transforming long standing cultural habits to promote handwashing with soap in the most rural parts of India in order to save lives. Every 20 seconds a child under 5 years dies due to preventable diseases like diarrhea and pneumonia, and 44% of these deaths occur during the first 28 days of a child’s life. Armed with this statistic, the multi-market team brought Chamki, the girl from the future, to life, to explain the importance of handwashing as a crucial step in disease prevention and death in the early stages of a child’s life.
Chamki’s message won the hearts of expecting and new mothers of all socioeconomic backgrounds to evangelize the cause. This life saving message was taken via a traveling cinema in media dark, rural India, to hundreds of remote villages where expecting mothers could experience the message. ‘Chamki – The Girl From The Future’ generated:
