The Spikes Asia Festival of Creativity has announced that Unilever have been named the 2015 Advertiser of the Year.
Over the last five years Unilever have taken an impressive 41 Spikes for their brand advertising across the Asia Pacific region. Amongst these are 11 Gold trophies and three Grands Prix which were awarded to ‘The Day I Visited my Son’ in Film Craft, ‘Radio Prank’ in Radio and ‘Where What you Grow is What you Eat’ in the Media category.
Terry Savage, chairman, Lions Festivals said that Unilever is a brand that refuses to stand still, adding that “they consistently strive to create marketing that is innovative and creatively bold. At Spikes Asia, the juries only award outstanding creativity, so the fact that they have scooped so many accolades is a huge credit to the quality of their marketing in the region.”
Unilever is one of the world’s leading suppliers of Food, Home and Personal Care products with sales in over 190 countries and reaching 2 billion consumers a day. Unilever’s Sustainable Living Plan (USLP) commits to decoupling growth from environmental impact, helping more than a billion people take action to improve their health and well-being and enhancing the livelihoods of millions of people by 2020.
