Media Trust and JWT London launch Campaigns for Good
16 June, 2011
On 16 June, Media Trust and advertising agency JWT London are launching ‘Campaigns for Good’ giving UK charities the chance to win expert help and advice for a communications campaign to run in 2011.
The winner will receive a planning session with award winning JWT London experts to help them build their brand strategy and develop ‘starter for ten’ campaign ideas. Media Trust and JWT London will also provide ongoing volunteer communications support, resources and training over three months.
To enter UK charities must provide information about their organisation and have a commitment to run a campaign this year. Entries should explain the campaign’s objectives, key messages, timescale, target audiences and expected results.
The best three campaign ideas will be shortlisted on 11 July and asked to present their idea to a panel from JWT London, Media Trust and Jeremy Bullmore of WPP, on 19 July. One winner will be announced and will receive an afternoon on 01 August with ten of the top directors of the Planning team at JWT London and continued support from Media Trust. The runners up will receive a personalised package of support from Media Trust.
Gavin Sheppard, Director of Marketing and Communications at Media Trust, said: “We’re delighted to be working with JWT London to give charities the opportunity to receive specialist advice to run their campaign. JWT London’s creative expertise will be invaluable in helping the winning charity to get their cause successfully seen and heard. It’s fantastic that WPP’s Jeremy Bullmore is on board to help us choose the most worthy winner. Jeremy recently won the Advertising Association’s Mackintosh Medal and we will really appreciate his input. ”
Tony Quinn, Head of Planning at JWT London, said: “We’re very excited to be launching this new initiative as part of WPP’s renewed support of Media Trust and their fantastic work. We look forward to lending our collective talent and experience to many a worthwhile UK charitable cause.”
