Campaigns for Cineplex Entertainment, Coca-Cola, Rexona, Visa and Whiskas are among the 21 campaigns that have been shortlisted for the WARC Awards’ Effective Content Strategy category – a search for branded content strategies that can demonstrate a business outcome. 

Chaired by John Dokes, Global Chief Marketing Officer and General Manager of AccuWeather Network, a judging panel of 16 top industry professionals from agencies and clients alike looked for evidence of how a content strategy – as opposed to a traditional advertising strategy – has helped a brand achieve business goals. 

Campaigns from a diverse range of brands and for a wide variety of different markets have been shortlisted. As well as a global campaign for Ikea, campaigns ran in Brazil, Canada, Egypt, India, Lebanon, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Thailand, Tunisia, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom and United States.
