MUMBAI: Vicks ‘One in a Million’ #TouchOfCare continued its winning spree at Cannes Lions 2019, bringing home 4 metals for the campaign. With one Silver Lion in the Film for Single-market Campaign category, and three Bronze Lions for Creative Strategy, Film Craft, and Film Healthcare category, this campaign notched up the highest wins for a single campaign from India.

This film is the second issue of the award-winning Vicks #TouchOfCare campaign in India and focuses on a young girl who has a rare skin condition, Ichthyosis.

While India is a modern nation, the majority of it is still uncomfortable around people who are born with a disability. The disabled generally find themselves excluded from society, which reflects in attitude towards adoption of disabled children. In the past year, out of 29.6 million orphans in India, only 42 with disabilities found a home.

Talking about this issue meant taking an entire system head-on. However, as a brand that believes ‘Every child deserves the touch of care’, Vicks took action with an emotional viral film and campaign featuring Nisha, an adopted girl filled with dreams and aspirations and an unconventional face.

The unconventional campaign captures her journey of transformation through the love and care of her adoptive mother, Aloma. Propagating the idea of giving unconditional love and care to people beyond biological relationships, Vicks ‘One in a Million’ #TouchOfCare is deeply rooted in ethos that ‘Every child deserves the touch of care’.

While last year Vicks #TouchOfCare broke the internet and went on to win several prestigious awards, including the top five best Global Campaigns of the World Sabre, this year’s Cannes wins only go to demonstrate the power of brand communication that is rested in genuine purpose.

Speaking on the win, Ritu Mittal, Country Marketing Manager, Vicks India said, "#TouchOfCare campaign is very close to my heart and it has been a pleasure to be a part of the campaign since its inception. Vicks ‘One in a million’, like its predecessor Vicks Generations of Care, is part of the larger #TouchOfCare campaign, which chronicles extraordinary, real-life stories of people providing unconditional care. Both the #TouchOfCare campaigns do not stop at being an example of evocative storytelling, but aim at influencing a positive change in the audience mind set. The campaign's continued recognition at Cannes and other global award platforms, only goes to reinforce that P&G’s ethos of brands being a force for good and a force for growth, have been in the right direction."
