Best Engagement strategy

SILVER: PHD for the Google App. Extra credit to The Hallway, Shine Australia and Network Ten.

PHD needed to showcase how the Google app could help people, so it created bespoke TV ads for Network Ten’s reality cooking show MasterChef, that referenced content in that night’s episode. These ads generated search queries – obviously through Google – showing consumers the power of the Google App.
