Canada takes four Internationalist Awards

PHD Canada and Mindshare picked up trophies at last night's ceremony in New York.

PHD Canada’s team will be coming back through customs with some extra hardware. The agency won three prizes at last night’s Internationalist Awards, which were handed in New York City.

The agency took a Gold for its “Discover UNB” campaign for the University of New Brunswick. That campaign used VR to give would-be students a tour of the campus without actually traveling there.

It also won a Silver for its “Boxing Week Bonanza” work for The Source and a Bronze from its “Reaching a New Target” campaign for Moen. Contobox was also listed on the Moen win.

Also taking a Bronze at last night’s ceremony was Mindshare and Contobox for its “Air Canada Brisbane 360” campaign. That campaign used a similar tack to PHD’s UNB work, utilizing 360-video to get show viewers a slice of Australia and entice them into taking an actual trip there.
