We Are A Nominee: The Drum Awards for Digital Advertising

This entry was posted in News on .

Our campaign #MoreThanAVote, executed in collaboration with Sadler Strategic Media, has been nominated for the Social Purpose category of The Drum Awards for Digital Advertising 2021. This award honors the best technology and digital media in advertising globally. This is the third award nomination for More Than A Vote (read: More Than a Vote: Two Time Winner of the Creative Media Awards). 


During the 2020 election, we partnered with More Than A Vote, an organization led by Lebron James, Patrick Mahomes, and other stars, for a three-stage Instagram influencer marketing campaign to raise awareness on voter suppression.  

Black creators in target cities (Philadelphia, Atlanta, Detroit, Milwaukee, Miami, Chicago, New Orleans, and Birmingham) shared personal stories and encouraged members of the Black community to register, volunteer, and ultimately to vote.
