Alvaro Alés, CEO of 360º Marketing & Communications & IMPACT Awards Jury Chair, commented:
“On behalf of all the jury members of the European IMPACT Awards, we would like to extend our gratitude to all the agencies that participated in this year’s edition. Their outstanding marketing campaigns have demonstrated a significant impact on the advertisers’ brands, setting a higher standard of excellence in the industry across Europe. The awarded campaigns serve as a benchmark for the industry and for future generations of marketing professionals.”
Ireland took the lead with 19 trophies, followed by the UK, Czech Republic and Spain with 4 trophies respectively.
The Grand Prix for exceptional work was presented to ZEAL Creative for their campaign Carlsberg WWF x ZEAL for the Carlsberg Marston’s Brewing Company. Carlsberg aimed to leverage the growing trend of “buying better” by appealing to consumers’ increasing preference for ethically and socially responsible brands. With a 175-year history of striving for betterment, Carlsberg sought to recruit younger consumers (18-24) and shift existing beer drinkers (24-35) by emphasizing sustainability as a key driver. Through a partnership with WWF, Carlsberg aimed to authentically engage millions of beer drinkers in protecting the UK’s ocean wildlife, demonstrating tangible actions like the Snap Pack packaging innovation and a commitment to zero carbon emissions to build a reputation as a brand worth paying more for.
The call for entries for the 2024 edition will open in September 2024. For more information, please visit the Awards website.
