DDB Latvia among the best at Baltic Communication Awards 2019
We are delighted to have brought home six awards from the biggest communication industry competition in the Baltics, Mi:t&Links Baltic Communication Awards 2019, thus becoming the second most-award winning agency at this competition.
Gold and silver awards were presented for the pre-election campaign of a candidate for the position of president of the Latvian Football Federation Kaspars Gorkšs, which we created together with the public relations agency Nords Porter Novelli and other partners. The campaign received the awards in the Public Affairs and No Budget categories. This was special recognition for us, which once again enables us to honour the memory of the driving force behind this campaign, Edgars Skulte.
We also received two silver awards in the Integrated Communication and International Communication categories for the LiveRiga project Insider’s guide to Riga, which for a second year in a row has helped Riga and Latvia to become the fastest growing tourism destination in the European Union.
We received another silver award in the Digital Communication category for the Nationwide Sortathlon campaign, which we created together with Latvijas Zaļais Punkts. The Sortathlon’s activities resulted in a rapid increase in rubbish sorting, with the number of sorters in Latvia increasing 11%, or approximately 100,000 people, over a two year period.
In turn, the bronze award in the Sponsorship Category was presented to a joint project with Deep White – LIDO Most Sonant People’s Dance Place. This project turned the popular restaurant LIDO into an informal meeting place for dancers and singers, making its own unique contribution to the festive atmosphere during the Centenary Song and Dance Celebration.
The Mi:t&Links Baltic Communication Awards is the biggest communication industry competition in the Baltics. This year, a total of 185 entries from five countries were submitted in 15 categories. The entries were judged by an international jury, which represented business, governmental and academic circles, as well as creative industries and non-governmental organisations.
We would like to thank our partners for their trust, audacity and great cooperation.
