This is an Intriguing study that resulted in positive outcomes. It tests the theory that positive people who read positive content are more engaged, open-minded, purposeful and productive. The study ranks high in innovation and usage.

What’s nice about this research is that they truly are what they preach – this is not only an external message they are pushing well in order to see revenue return.  It’s also at the heart of their internal culture.  This is what makes this research so powerful! They walk the walk and talk the talk!

Pay Attention


The team:

Magnetic cleverly played on the title of the study, Pay Attention! by initiating attention-grabbing activities such as a dedicated microsite, custom magazine covers and gatefolds distributed to agencies in custom branded boxes.

The judges loved this entry and are looking forward to hearing more about the consumer results in the future.

Bauer Media Australia

  • Jane Waterhouse, Story 54

The judges said:

Bauer Media pulled back the curtain on a topic long overdue in addressing the spending power and importance of women 50+. Motivated to re-educate the advertising industry, the study brings to light the power, beliefs and attitudes of this female cohort. The Defiant study scores high in relevance, reception and transferability of the study and information to other markets.

This while not an innovative project in itself is a great initiative for the country. With strong content, the judges looked forward to evidence in the future of what difference this initiative has made either in terms of commercial impact or revenue.

Heart of Britain

The judges looked forward to results and outcome of the research in the future.
