Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation
The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation connected with new players by releasing an exclusive clothing line with a LOTTO MAX ticket attached.
The lottery was struggling to attract younger players while facing the challenge of a rise of new gaming options such as sports and online betting and video games.
The Lottery released the world’s first wearable lottery ticket in the form of a clothing line with a barcode giving the wearer access to a year's worth of lottery tickets, resulting in a 200% increase in ticket sales.

Flutwein increased donations and awareness about flooding and the Ahr Valley in Germany by selling bottles of wine that had survived the flood.
To raise donations for the damaged areas, Flutwein branded the bottles of wine that were rescued from the cellars of the wineries.
The newly created #flutwein brand united the wines of more than 50 independent wineries from the Ahrweiler region under one single label and generated over 4.4m euros in six weeks.

There were ten winning case studies in the 2022 competition, with Deutsche Bahn: Rediscover Germany, through Ogilvy Frankfurt, taking the Grand Prix.
Deutsche Bahn collaborated with state tourism associations and motivated Germans to holiday in Germany and get there by train.
The creative was based on an element of surprise in ads that showed amazing destinations that were then revealed to be in Germany and a landing page offered further inspiration and booking options.
