MUMBAI: Looks like Indian digital work is leaving a good mark at global platforms. At Cannes Lions 2014, JWT’s work for Nike India won a Silver Lion along with two Bronze Lions in the Cyber category. The campaign titled ‘Make every yard count’ was a digital film created by the agency that was then splashed across social media platforms.

The agency crowd sourced 225,001 images of cricket enthusiasts out of which 1,440 were used in the film. Athletes were invited, via social media and Nike Cricket’s official website. Around 108 travel photographers went around playgrounds, streets, gullies and cricket pitches across the country.

An interesting soundtrack was composed using chants, breaths, appeals, screams and sledges that one usually hears during a cricket match. The video received over 2.5 million impressions during the online campaign period.
