Ad Pays 8: The Coronavirus Response

Despite the situation we are currently in with regards to COVID-19, we have never seen a greater push from brands, advertisers and the media who are doing great things in response to the outbreak and the circumstances that we are now living in.

That is why we are today launching a special new category on our Ad Pays 8 hub that highlights case studies from industry members that have created positive initiatives in response to the virus. This will act as a one-stop-shop for all the creative and entrepreneurial work that has helped the UK get through the biggest peace-time crisis we have ever faced.

Ad Pays 8 is a report by our industry’s think tank, Credos, on UK advertising’s positive contribution to society, and features case studies that highlight such brilliant work from Adland, which are also showcased on the dedicated hub. We felt that the work we have seen surrounding COVID-19 fits perfectly with this theme and so the new category will sit alongside these other examples.

If you want to feature any work that you are doing surrounding COVID-19 on our online hub, or have seen work that you think should be featured, then please get in touch with Ellie, and we will include it in our showcase to Government, key decision-makers and professionals across our industry.

In the meantime, if you are looking for a challenge, The United Nations have issued a global call out to creatives to help stop the spread of COVID-19. Check out the brief here.
