The winning team from l to r: Gary, Andrew, Nick and Jedd
The direct mail campaign titled The World's First Stethoscope Radio Ad encourages US and European medical graduates to consider public service roles across Africa. A simple but effective direct mail campaign, it works by the recipient placing their stethoscope on the box, where a pressure sensor activates the audio clip.
Andrew MacKenzie, Boomtown's creative director, said of their work with Africa Health Placements: "It's flattering to be recognised in New York by a jury of esteemed creatives, but to be able to produce an innovative solution for a great social cause is extremely rewarding."
Part of the Boomtown CSR initiative, it found there is a shortage of doctors in Africa, with a strong need in the central regions. A creative, and innovatively executive direct mail campaign to grab the recipients' attention in an interactive way hooks the graduates' attention and encourages sharing.
Boomtown MD, Wayne Harrison, added: "The execution of this campaign demonstrates the Boomtown philosophy and approach perfectly: creativity melded with strategic thinking to create a big impact. The BOOM. It's a piece of work we're incredibly proud of."
