The 9th FIPP Insight Award winners were presented by Esther Braspenning, chairwoman of the FIPP Insight Committee and content manager of WeMedia in Belgium. The awards, sponsored by UPM, enable media companies and trade associations to highlight research-driven pieces of work that have enabled them to materially improve their business.
The award winners were:
INSIGHT AWARD OVERALL WINNER
The jury was impressed that they used innovative techniques which delivered good results, which were in turn used by the industry. It was an exellent piece of work, particularly as it was driven by collaboration across four major companies.
BEST INSIGHT PROJECT B2B
The judges said this was a great campaign and the reception in the market was very good. It focused on magazines' core strength. The judges really liked the strong integration with the agency world to shape the research. It tackled a complicated subject matter using a combination of techniques to get to a strong story for magazines.
This was an interesting neuroscientific research piece according to the judges, which provided new insights on how trust in media affects advertising in media, an area that hasn't been researched a lot.
The judges found the subject of influencers very relevant.
Another important piece of research by Magnetic, with a good, innovative approach that is highly transferable, said the judges.
According to the judges this was an extensive piece of research into this important subject. It provided a view on brand safety and trust from the advertiser/agency and the consumer.
COMMERCIAL OUTCOME AWARD
The judges said this campaign really showed a positive impact on sales.
SILVER – Ready to Shop, Associated Media Publishing, South Africa
The judges noted this campaign's very practical and useful incorporation of technology using QR codes. It's interesting for advertisers on one hand and makes direct shopping for consumers very simple.
The judges were impressed that MPA mobilised all its members to place all these campaigns in their titles, which in itself was a great achievement. The campaign was also very relevant for other associations.
MULTI-PLATFORM INSIGHT AWARD
The judges said this was a very interesting, very innovative piece of work. It works both for the editorial teams to base their work on as well as working to sell the magazines.
The MPA Social Media Engagement Factor was commended by the judges for its relevance and its transferability. At least one other association has already replicated it.
The judges recognised the work of Associated Media Publishing in the Diversity Award category for its #SayYesToLove campaign. As part of the special issue of Cosmopolitan South Africa it featured a trans-gender model on its cover and focussed on a social media campaign to raise awareness.
