in December? Xmastreesdirect.co.uk was set up to solve this problem. The

campaign is based on the miniature tree on every computer screen - the

cursor, with the white background filling in for snow.

The EMMA Awards celebrate multiculturalism in the field of media.

Saatchi & Saatchi used an image that most immediately represents media

in people's minds - a microphone - and fused this with an ethnic image

of afro hair. The campaign inspired people to ring up and vote.

Army cutbacks in 2000 saw a switch from TV recruitment ads to this

competition which offered a prize of seven nights training with the Army

in Kenya.



The usual rules in small print became the central idea, with Army rules

such as "entrants with a fear of lions, rhinos and snakes should

immediately reconsider." 13,484 entry forms were handed in and 2,649

downloaded from the Army website. 80 per cent requested a brochure.
