2012 IABC/Toronto OVATION Awards – And The Winners Are…

The Toronto chapter of the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC) held their annual OVATION Awards last night, clients and agencies were recognized for their contributions for a year’s worth of some pretty cool and compelling campaigns.  Top honors went to Narrative Advocacy Media as they were awarded People’s Choice Award for its “Best Conversation Ever” campaign. The People’s Choice Award is handed out annually in recognition of the best communications campaign of the year, as voted by IABC/Toronto members.  The “Best Conversation Ever”, was developed for WIND Mobile, and they gave five Canadians the conversations of a lifetime, while donating more than $500,000 to Canadian charities. Starting with the simple question, “If you could talk to anyone in the world, who would it be?”, the campaign brought to life WIND Mobile’s brand promise of “The Power of Conversation.” Through the campaign, five lucky Canadians will have the conversations of their lives with the likes of Michael J. Fox, Sidney Crosby, Christopher Nolan, Alex Anthopoulos and Brett Wilson.
