J. Walter Thompson supports One Show 2018 with campaign on how to 'Be Famous Famous'

Screen Shot 2017-11-16 at 6.26.37 am.jpgThe One Club for Creativity has opened the call for entries for the prestigious 2018 One Show awards, and today kicks off the humorous "Be Famous Famous" campaign developed by J. Walter Thompson New York.

The One Show entries can be submitted at www.oneshow.org, with third-quarter deadline November 30, 2017 and final deadline January 31, 2018. Juries will be announced shortly.

The integrated "Be Famous Famous" campaign from JWT, which includes print, video and interactive, makes a comical statement about how winning a coveted One Show Pencil is the only way to be not just industry famous, but "famous famous".

Says Kevin Swanepoel, CEO, The One Club for Creativity: "JWT's campaign is a tongue-in-cheek take on fame and how The One Show can make it possible. At the same time, entering work also helps the industry overall because The One Club is a global non-profit organization that uses awards revenue to give back to the industry through nearly two dozen education, professional development, gender equality and inclusion and diversity programs for creatives around the world at all levels."

Says Aaron Padin, head of art and design, J. Walter Thompson New York: "There's a lot of tension in the world right now, so we wanted to create something that makes people smile. We took a hyperbolic look at what it means to win at the One Show to poke a little fun at ourselves."

One Show Awards juries focus on creativity of ideas and quality of execution.  Judging will take place in March 2018, with finalists revealed in April and winners announced and celebrated at The One Show galas on May 9 and 11, 2018 as part of Creative Week in New York.
