AVC wins CMA Award in Branded Content and Promotion for Little MAC.

Every year, the Marketing Awards jury brings together over 90 of the top creative minds from all sides of the Canadian advertising and design industry to curate the most standout work in four main sectors: Advertising, Design, Multicultural and Craft, with categories spanning Digital to Branded Content, to Direct, OOH, PR and others.

The Gold M trophy is a symbol of top-rated creative excellence and the highest calibre of execution, and the Marketing Awards Annual showcases the best of Canadian creativity across all disciplines, from coast to coast.

AVC won in the Branded Content and Promotion category for its work with MAC Cosmetics.

MAC Cosmetics had a perception problem among first- and second-generation Chinese-Canadians. They believed the brand’s Little MAC line of lipstick was both “too couture” and “low quality.” So to make it both accessible and desirable, MAC worked with Chinese fashion influencers to show Little MAC’s quality and versatility in social posts. Contesting and outreach increased reach by 197%, surpassing its goals by 250%.
