Positive, Blue Cross and Blue Shield Anti-Obesity TV Spots Win Addy Gold and Silver

We chose to highlight folks making positive lifestyle changes in order to fight obesity in their lives; placing their images against a backdrop of an upbeat, positive song. Our hope was to positively drive them to the website about a very positive thing: better health at betterhealthnc.com and pay off BCBS’s positive positioning statement, “Your plan for better health.”

The response was overwhelmingly positive. The judges at the 2009 ADDY AWARDS also responded positively by giving it GOLD in the National TV, Consumer Services category.

We did one edit that was more somber in tone; to be used in PSA situations. I feel this proves that great images and a great idea can work in more than one mood. A great,  patient editor never hurts either.
