Campaign Digital Awards 2006: Best Charity and Public Sector Campaign

WINNER
Project: Smart online, safe offline
Client: Lydia Fitzpatrick, marketing manager, Home Office
Agency: Profero
Writer: James Taylor
Art director: Ian Owen
Designer: Stuart Peddie

The Home Office emphasised the impact young internet users' online behaviour could have on the wider world, through this campaign by Profero. The judges were wowed by the executions, which commandeered MSN Messenger - a creative first - and featured a figure with an emoticon face. The powerful visual was intended to shock.

The ads on Messenger had an impressive 12 per cent click-through rate, and the campaign as a whole delivered more than 45 million page impressions.
