"Our only instruction to voters, is to vote"14 March 2012 -
Paris, 13 March 2012 - The French Association of Communications Agencies has launched a public campaign to encourage citizens to vote: 'Join the fight against abstention in the elections!' The initiative is based on the desire to demonstrate that communication and creativity have a fundamental role to play in France, an economic role on the one hand and addressing human & societal issues on the other.
The AACC is therefore launching the first ever collaborative campaign created by its member agencies, for l'Association Democratie et Communication.
Created after the presidential elections of 2002, l'Association Democratie & Communication aims to modernise French political communication, in particular by questioning the negative impact of the Law of 1990 on voting, during the periods preceding electoral ballots.
This unique campaign, made up of 9 original creative treatments using different media channels, will run between 25 March & 9 April 2012.
It is the work of the following agencies:
Action d'eclat: "Une Goutte d'Eau"
Ailleurs exactement: "L'Abstention n'aura pas ma voix"
Being: "Le Bulletin"
Herezie: "Trop Jeune"
JWT: "L'Appli Moi President"
Lowe Strateus: "Le Compteu"
TBWA\Paris: "5 ou 10g/Le Slam"
TBWA\Corporate: "Vote Zapping"
Wunderman: "L'Entretien d'Embauche"
These campaigns will run with the support of the media in more than 40 media platforms, which wanted to affirm both their belief in high-quality creative advertising and their willingness to get behind a public cause: the fight against voting abstention!
The creative campaigns can be seen and shared on a special site set up by the AACC: www.aaccvote2012.fr
