Grand Effie Awarded to Nutella Campaign with Ogilvy Italia


From strategic definition, to implementation, to the measurement of results: the Effie Awards recognize the excellence of Italian marketing campaigns and open the doors to internationality.

Milan, 13 October 2020 - The award ceremony of the Effie Awards Italy, now in its second year, was held today in the presence of the few guests permitted by safety regulations and broadcast live on YouTube, brought to Italy jointly by UNA, Imprese della Comunicazione Unite, and UPA, the Association that brings together the most important Italian investors in advertising and communication. The event, supported  by main sponsors Google and Nielsen, recognized campaigns that stood out for the effectiveness of their marketing results and communications performance.

Despite the moment, made complex by the health emergency, the second Italian edition recorded an important response in terms of entries. In part thanks to the many innovations introduced this year, such as the introduction of new categories including Digital Video Campaigns, PR Initiatives and Branded Entertainment, entries increased by 50% compared to the previous year.

Entries were judged by three juries of 70 industry experts, representing the corporate world and agencies in all its forms - from media, creative, PR, and promotional and events agencies - and chaired by Assunta Timpone, Media Director of L'Oreal Italia.
 
In line with the international model, the campaigns were evaluated according to four different criteria, each with specific weight, starting with the definition of objectives, strategy, both creative and media execution, and the most important criterion, results obtained. All winners and finalists will earn points toward the worldwide Effie Index and have the opportunity to participate in international competitions such as Effie Awards Europe and Global Best of the Best Effie Awards.

The Grand Effie was awarded to the “Nutella Gemella” campaign by Ogilvy Italia.

"Effectiveness is the new currency of communication and marketing, especially in times like these when investment opportunities are more limited. I think that's why, in contrast to other awards, registrations for Effie are growing. We strongly wanted to bring this award to Italy, and seeing its value rise so quickly gratifies us a lot ”declared Emanuele Nenna, President of UNA. “Working together with UPA is one of the reasons for success: the market feels represented and properly valued. Furthermore, the Effie international circuit guarantees a showcase in which to showcase Italian skills, which are still too often far from the spotlight. A good second edition of the award is the best premise for the 2021 edition, which we are already working on, to be that of consecration."

"The world of communication is constantly changing - says Lorenzo Sassoli de Bianchi, President of UPA - accelerated by the evolution of technology and changes in consumer attitudes. Even in a complex phase like the one we are experiencing, advertising is a fundamental lever for growth, for brand identity, for the commercial objectives of our companies. Effie, which reaches its second Italian edition overcoming the many obstacles caused by the health emergency, is an excellent training ground for measuring the effectiveness of communication. The partnership with UNA has allowed us, thanks to an accurate evaluation of the projects, to select the best campaigns, concrete examples of excellent creativity oriented to results and the market ".
