The global campaign '#bloodnormal' for Bodyform, the feminine hygiene brand, used a digital film to break taboos and connect with women globally. As well as winning the Grand Prix, the campaign also won the Evaluation Award, for a brand purpose strategy that has gone the extra mile in measuring both commercial and societal impact.
Commenting on the Grand Prix winner, jury member Jo Arden, Chief Strategy Officer, MullenLowe Group UK, said: "This is an unbelievably great case study. It makes me proud of advertising."
A further three Golds, five Silvers, four Bronzes and two more Special Awards have been won in the Effective Use of Brand Purpose category, which recognises marketing initiatives that have successfully embraced a brand purpose and achieved commercial success as well as a benefit for a wider community.
The winners, as selected by the 17-strong jury panel (www.warc.com/WARCAwards/purpose-judges.info#claudia-willvonseder) made up of both agency and client-side industry professionals chaired by Claudia Willvonseder, Chief Marketing Officer, IKEA, are:
