Busan Metropolitan Police Agency & Cheil Worldwide win the Grand Effie Award for “Stop Downloadkill” at the 5th Effie Awards Korea

At the 5th Effie Awards Korea (“Effie Korea”) held on June 14 at The Plaza in Seoul, ‘Stop Downloadkill’ by the Busan Metropolitan Police Agency and Cheil Worldwide won the highest honor of Grand Effie, in the ‘public interest, non-profit’ category.
 
During the main round of judging held at the headquarters of Cheil Worldwide on June 25, ‘Stop Downloadkill’, a campaign established to crack down on hidden camera-related sex crimes that are on the rise in Korea, is said to have won by a large margin. The campaign was created under the assumption that the distribution of film from hidden cameras forms its own market, and that both the demand and supply need to be tackled. The campaign features a fake hidden camera film created against various backdrops including subways, motels, public toilets and changing rooms, where the female character suddenly turns into a monster, triggering horror in the viewers. Over the two months during which the campaign was in place on the online voyeur video black market, the distribution of illegal hidden camera shots dropped by 21% and the campaign video itself reached over five million citizens through major nationwide channels. This culminated in a bill in November 2017 that outlawed hidden cameras.    
 
Effie Awards Korea, which recognizes marketing communications effectiveness, marks its 5th anniversary this year. Launched in the U.S. in 1968, Effie runs programs in over 45 countries, including 20+ European countries. Unlike other marketing awards that focus on the creative aspect, Effie Awards value results - the setting of challenging goals and execution of efficient ideas.
 
CEO of BC Card and head of the review committee Munhwan Lee commented, “We reviewed all works that were submitted, including those in the field of new media, digital and design. Reviews were focused on a combination of factors, such as creative strategy and execution, as well as the success of the campaign itself.”
 
‘Happy Bus Day’ by Incheon Metropolitan City & Overman, and ‘Condensing is the answer’ by Kyungdong Navien & HSAd, won the Gold and Silver in two categories, respectively.
 
‘Chimmelier Test’ by Woowa Brothers & Baedalminjok and ‘The Next Big Thing’ by New Balance & visual-factory were awarded Silver, while the Bronze were given to ‘Water Lens Campaign’ by Alcon Dailies Total 1 & Phoenix Communications, ‘Uncomfort Women Project’ by The Korean Council for the Women Drafted for Military Sexual Slavery by Japan & HSAd, ‘Emart Molly's Pet Shop Hood House’ by Emart Molly’s Pet Shop & Cheil Worldwide, ‘Natural Plus Sunstick Campaign’ by AHC & TBWA KOREA, and ‘Shackleton’s Return’ by Hyundai Motor Company & Innocean Worldwide. ‘A ticket to Spain’ by Korean Air & HSAd, in particular, was given the Bronze in two categories.
 
Head of the Executive Committee Eunkyoung Han (Professor of Media and Broadcasting at Sungkyunkwan University) commented that “the works submitted were of world-class level, bringing great insight into what makes a campaign successful. I hope these outstanding works are registered with the Effie Index to promote Korea’s status in the global creativity market.”
