In the Company of Huskies Win Two International Awards at OBIE Virtual Ceremony 2020
In the Company of Huskies has thanked the Outdoor Advertising Association of America for awarding its work with St. Vincent de Paul (SVP) and Smurfit Kappa in the OBIE Awards.
Christmas is a critical time for donations for SVP and the campaign ‘Some things shouldn’t be a family tradition’ was designed to remind people that there is another side to Christmas. For most of us, it’s a wonderful time of year, but some families face the prospect of a hungry and cold Christmas. The SVP Annual Appeal included the award-winning poster on Dublin’s Liberty Hall, which used the building’s distinct architecture to make it look like an empty cupboard, highlighting the alarming increase of food poverty across Ireland.
‘Some things shouldn’t be a family tradition’ campaign increased public support and much-needed donations for SVP at this key time.
The other campaign to receive an OBIE was Smurfit Kappa’s ‘Better Planet Packaging’. Plastic pollution is one of the most pressing environmental issues, and this global initiative was set up by Smurfit Kappa to explore and re-imagine packaging solutions for a more sustainable world. The award-winning outdoor ‘Let’s make waste extinct’ shows that our choice of packaging can make a big difference, not just for the ocean but for our environment as a whole.
For nearly 80 years, OBIEs have been recognising creative brilliance in outdoor so it is an honour to win two coveted international OBIE Awards. In the Company of Huskies thanks its clients at Smurfit Kappa and SVP. And special thanks to the team that worked on these projects including Taylor James, Donal Moloney and Big Picture Media.
