Get The Flow wins 5 Lions in Cannes

Back to news overview

This week, Vodafone’s Get The Flow campaign (in collaboration with DDB & Tribal Amsterdam, Maak, MEC, WeFilm and Awful Men), has won five (!) awards during the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity. The campaign was also rewarded with a Lion in the PR category. It is the first time that Het PR Bureau has won this prestigious award. Vodafone’s campaign was nominated nine times. One category still has to name its winner.

Next to a bronze Lion in the category ‘PR’, the Get The Flow campaign won two bronze Lions in the category ‘Promo & Activations’, as well as winning a Lion in the categories ‘Media’ and ‘Entertainment for Music’. The category ‘Sound Design’ still has to name its winner.

Camiel Overgaauw, account manager and partner: “Vodafone succeeds time and time again in highlighting social issues that are connected to technology. They’ve shown this with the Street Messenger campaign, the Back to School campaign and now also with their most recent Get The Flow rap app. There’s a fine line between Vodafone as a commercial brand and as a pioneer in highlighting social issues, but they are able to strike the right tone and open dialogue due to their open attitude. Something that is subtle and impressive at the same time. It’s fantastic that this campaign has also received international acclamation.”

Get The Flow is an app that helps children with a stutter to practice their speech in a cool way. Through various rap exercises in various paces, teens can simultaneously train their speech technique and rap skills. The campaign was launched together with Ali B and Miss Montreal and was highly visible in the media. RTL Late Night was one of the many media platforms to pay extensive attention to the issue.

”We work together with a dedicated team at Het PR Bureau. A great mix of creativity and PR expertise. In close collaboration with their network in media, influencers and behind the stage, they make plans happen.”

Esther ter Braak - Brand Manager

“For a startup brand like ours, it was extremely important to see frequent media coverage. Het PR Bureau has laid the foundation for our growth from Amsterdam to 6 other cities in the Netherlands. Despite our relatively modest budgets, we were able to achieve enormous coverage together. I look back on a number of activations with great pleasure.”

Vincent Hosman - Country Manager Nederland

"Netflix was ​​looking for the best suitable communication partner in every country. This could also be a 'local hero', as long as they are big enough. For the introduction of Netflix in the Netherlands and Belgium, we have partnered up with Het PR Bureau. The desired Service Level Agreement was new to Het PR Bureau, but they adapted very quickly and it soon surfaced. Within the international framework, they surprised us with their proactivity and creative ideas."

Joris Evers - Vice President Netflix, Head of Communications Europe, Middle East & Africa

”The uniqueness of Het PR Bureau is that the people are able to both think on a strategic level and at the same time roll up their sleeves to set up an event or activation. A high-quality one-stop-shop in the field of PR, that is what we were looking for and what we ultimately found in Het PR Bureau.”

Wieteke van Hunnik - PR & Communications manager

“In de zoektocht naar een bureau dat ons merk in de Benelux kon introduceren, kwamen we na een intensieve oriëntatie bij Het PR Bureau uit. Hun netwerk, ondernemerszin en drive gaven de doorslag. We waren onder de indruk van hun professionaliteit. De strategie van het bureau is dat ze VAPs (Very Adorable People) op cruciale posities aan het werk zetten. Intussen hebben we, sinds de start in 2011, ruim zeven jaar samengewerkt. Ik kan gerust stellen dat Het PR Bureau een belangrijke rol heeft gespeeld in het groot maken van Spotify in de Benelux. "

“Het PR Bureau is a smart, professional group of people with nice perspectives where I felt at home immediately. Especially in a very difficult market such as the insurance industry, in which many interests play a role and which has many limitations, they did very well. I regard Het PR Bureau as a premium agency. With such a partner you can be assured that your campaign will be executed impeccably.”
