The campaign for ‘The Great Colgate Pilgrimage’ won silver in the category Best Campaign Use of Mobile, while bronze medals for work done in the categories of Best Innovation in Mobile Marketing and Best Use of Social Networks. The awards also recognised Red Fuse’ efforts for ‘The Great Colgate Pilgrimage’ and ‘Smile Camera Action’ campaigns respectively.
Colgate-Palmolive VP-marketing Ajith Babu said, “On behalf of the Colgate team, we would like to congratulate the Red Fuse team for this commendable win. As our partners, they have contributed immensely to innovatively communicate with our consumers. We look forward to many such successful campaigns."
Red Fuse Communications CEO Shubha George added, “Complex challenges need the most innovative solutions. In India, location-based targeting has been used to primarily target people in the metros and has almost always used text messaging or WAP banner. This was the very first time in India a brand had used location-based voice communication and that too to a roaming rural subscriber. Being recognised and awarded on platforms only encourages us to push the limits and strive for more innovations. Red Fuse and our client Colgate-Palmolive work as true partners and the successful results of the new-age full service agency is here to stay.”
The innovative location-based voice communication campaign has drawn national as well international recognition, with the agency winning several awards at global, regional and national events.
