ESV Digital Strengthens Its Expertise in Social TV by Winning Two European Awards with Canal+

The PromaxBDA Europe 2014 is a one of a kind awards ceremony, which took place on the 25th of March in London, honoring the finest work in TV Promotion, Marketing and Design for the European region. The ceremony recognized campaigns in several categories and selected winners from over 1500 entries.

We are happy to announce that a campaign created by Komilfo, the agency we merged with earlier this month, was recognized at the ceremony, reinforcing our expertise in Brand Content and Social TV.

Our client, Canal+, received two awards with the Truth Terror – campaign for the TV drama “Tunnel” in the following categories :

  • Gold Award in the category “Platform Website”
  • Silver Award in the category “Use of Social Media for Programme”

See the full list of winners.

The objective of the “Truth Terror” campaign was to put the digital user into the shoes of the main character, in this case the serial killer. The operation began with a teaser aimed at the bloggers creating a mystery around the series via cryptic messages and scary videos. We also created a dedicated website enabling users to discover the world of the the Truth Terrorist, aka the serial killer. Visitors were able to find clues and share his secrets with an original user experience. On top of that, we launched social media profiles on behalf of the Truth Terrorist on Facebook and Twitter interacting with the real audience.

The campaign was successful and created a buzz in the digital platforms even before the release of the first episode. Each visitor generated at least 3 sharing actions on the site and in total resulted over 230 000 interactive actions.

We are extremely happy and proud of the recognition at the PromaxBDA Europe 2014, and we are currently working on different projects to expand our expertise in digital activation and social campaigns.
