Coca-Cola wins Content Grand Prix at WARC Awards
A campaign created by FP7/CAIRO for Coca-Cola around the African Cup of Nations has won the Grand Prix in the Effective Content Strategy category at the 2018 WARC Awards.
The category rewards branded content strategies that can demonstrate a business outcome.
Coke is facing a challenging time in Egypt, as its rival Pepsi is the official sponsor of the African Cup of Nations, and Egyptian fans are losing interest in following their national team because there is a ban on live attendances. The soft drink beverage manufacturer has had to rethink and rework its strategy in this market.
