Ad Pros, Fancy a Facebook Award for Your Mantle?

 

Back in April, Facebook unveiled the Evolution Bureau-built “Facebook Studio,” a digital space where creative marketing types could showcase and archive their work and comment on the work of others.

At the time of its launch, you probably thought Facebook Studio sounded like a neat idea and something you would submit your agencies’ campaign work to once you had a free minute to upload a case study. Then, as you were reading this, you thought, “Oh yeah, that Facebook ad thing I forgot to do,” and visited Facebook Studio’s site to see if other creatives were making use of the portal.

As it turns out, a lot of agencies have been using Facebook Studio, specifically for the purpose of drawing some attention to social media-specific campaigns and pretty custom tabs. And, perhaps to inspire you to post even more work to the FB space, EVB has now rolled out a series of print ads that urge advertising pros to enter the Facebook Studio Awards, which was announced a couple of months back and is yet another opportunity for self-congratulation among those in the industry who like trophies.

 

To refresh your memory, the deadline for submission is December 31, and entries will be judged based on the following criteria:

  • Is the campaign social? Are people and social interactions at the core of the idea? Does it motivate people to share?
  • Does it make full use of Facebook marketing products? Does the campaign take advantage of Facebook’s full potential?
  • Does it integrate with other media? Is the Facebook idea part of a larger multimedia campaign?
  • Does it scale? Is it easy for people to interact with and share your content.

Interested competitors can submit their work here. Check out one more ad and credits from EVB after the jump.

Mall Shoppers, Gear Up for the “LOLiday Season”

No digitally savvy shopaholic’s visit to his or her local mall over the next month is complete without a new holiday-themed mobile app for download. Fortunately for patrons of Westfield Malls, they now have access to the “LOLiday App,” courtesy of the minds at EVB, who are no strangers to holiday projects.

After downloading the app for iPhone, Android or iPad2,  shoppers can then visit the “LOLiday Card Set” at their local participating Westfield Mall. Here, using the magic of mobile technology and augmented reality, shoppers can insert images of themselves into wacky holiday scenes. Why would the nation’s consumers want to insert themselves into a photo that depicts them kissing a buff, shirtless Santa Claus? Well, ladies and gentlemen, they do it for the LOLZ (see also: “lulz”). And, for those avoiding the mall completely or still incapacitated after suffering injuries from a Black Friday Wal-Mart stampede, a completely new silly photo experience awaits on the LOLiday Cards website.

Remember, a new iPad starts at $499 retail, but LOLZ are free. So, this holiday season, give the gift of laughter, and you might even win $10,000 as part of Westfield Mall’s “Laughing All the Way Sweepstakes.” Participating malls and credits follow after the jump.
