SEATTLE, WA. (May 22, 2013) – Publicis Seattle received a Silver Effie in the Packaged Foods category for reinventing an iconic brand, Ball Park at the 45th annual Effie Awards. The Effie Awards are known by advertisers and agencies globally as the pre-eminent award in the industry, and recognize any and all forms of marketing communication that contribute to a brand’s success.
Aiming to revive an iconic yet stagnant brand, Ball Park boldly went from selling hot dogs to families to selling guy food for guy time. Walking shoulder-to-shoulder with the shopper, aka guy’s gal, the campaign dramatized the head scratching, yet somehow endearing, things men do during guy time. And rather than trying to understand them, just feed them the bold, juicy delicious food they love and be on your way. The campaign ignited chatter and engagement on social media, drove PR, successfully launched new products, helped reclaim the #1 hot dog brand position and propelled sales above all competitors to win the grilling season triple crown: Memorial Day, 4th of July & Labor Day weekend.
Effie Worldwide stands for effectiveness in marketing communications, spotlighting marketing ideas that work and encouraging thoughtful dialogue about the drivers of marketing effectiveness. The Effie network works with some of the top research and media organizations worldwide to bring its audience relevant and first-class insights into effective marketing strategy. Since 1968, winning an Effie has become a global symbol of achievement. Today, Effie celebrates effectiveness worldwide with the Global Effie, the Euro Effie, the Middle East / North Africa Effie and more than 40 national Effie programs.
