One of the projects we worked on earlier this year has scooped up 1 Silver and 3 Bronze Lions at the 2017 Cannes Lions Festival!

The Comic Relief Swear Jar app was nominated for a total of 9 Lions, receiving nods in the following categories:

Silver: Promo and Activation – Use of Technology
Bronze: Promo and Activation – Use of Mobile
Bronze: Direct – Use of Mobile
Bronze: Media – Use of Mobile

The campaign, developed by Grey London, encouraged people in the UK to donate to Comic Relief by clocking up swear words on the Swear Jar app.

To inspire the UK public’s best swearing, they featured some iconic swearing moments in movies and TV shows. We helped them secure the rights to use clips from Love Actually, Four Weddings and a Funeral, The Late Late Show with James Corden, Bridget Jones Diary, The King’s Speech and many more.

In addition to the Lions, the campaign was a huge success with 100 million combined media impressions and 11k+ app downloads in the first week. This year Comic Relief raised an enormous £73.3m – that is effing fabulous!!
