This category will honor those efforts that successfully communicate to teens or young adults.
Project “Access” is devoted to the most valuable thing for young people in the Internet - content. It was raising a question of decreasing value of content at the age of its infinity. Together with contemporary artists, musicians and designers we created content that was intentionally limited to make it desirable by its inaccessibility. It was possible to watch created content only through AR app in offline and having caught targeted placement in niche media online. We managed to finally become a leader at the “for youth” attribute by growing it’s rate to 48 points.

Seize the Awkward
Suicide is the second leading cause of death among teens. At-risk youth feel alone, but there is one group they trust for support: their friends. Our task: encourage teens to talk to friends who struggle with mental health issues. But talking about mental health with friends can be... awkward. Instead of shying away from it, we leaned into awkwardness and showed how awkward moments can be opportunities to help. Ultimately, we normalized mental health conversations, making ad-aware teens 30% more likely to speak to a friend and save a life.
