'Lidl movie moments' took home Grand Prix.

of


Lidl's "Lidl movie moments" by Starcom scooped the Grand Prix, as well as the award for Best Use of Cinema (Large) and a high commendation in the Best Bespoke for Cinema category, at the 2019 Digital Cinema Media Awards.

The 14-month family-led cinema partnership was celebrated at a red-carpet ceremony at London's Ham Yard Hotel on 18 September, along with other winners of awards, which are run by DCM in partnership with Campaign.

"Lidl movie moments" included a brand ad created by Karmarama, plus bespoke idents and assets by DCM Studios and Contented involving five movies, including Mary Poppins Returns and Toy Story 4. It aimed to drive engagement and customer purchase by incentivising Lidl customers to increase their basket size with the opportunity to win family tickets to the cinema.

The judges, chaired by Campaign global edigtor-in-chief Claire Beale, considered it a contender in every category it entered. A "clear and compelling" entry, it was praised for its commitment in capitalising on the unique nature of the cinema environment over the long term.

The Digital Cinema Media Awards celebrate and reward the best cinema advertising launched in the past 12 months. Since their inception five years ago, the awards have evolved to attract a broad mix of brands and agencies and to showcase more bespoke-for-cinema work than ever, along with evidence of how brands can use cinema to deliver short-term sales results and play a pivotal role at the launch of a campaign.
