A+E NETWORKS LATIN AMERICA, Miami / A+E NETWORKS LATIN AMERICA / 2019
Cyberbullying affects everyone regardless of race, gender, or age. The network offers a unique access to real life situations that are relevant to our growing audience. We want to provide our audience with: the latest topics of discussion and information, on how we are involved, and how the audience can help make a difference, too. Our objective is to support the causes of today, by creating awareness to the Latin American and Brazilian communities using all our platforms on the topics of harmful social issues. This is the first ever social awareness campaign by the network in which our first campaign project supports anti-bullying focusing on the issues of cyberbullying in the Latin America region and Brazil. Cyberbullying is a major problem in which it is also under speculation due to cultural norms.
It started with the fact that we have a TV platform that we can use to address social awareness to our audience. We decided to expand on what our audience could relate to--and that is a topic of a major social issue.
As this is our first social awareness campaign, we want to be creative as much as we possibly can attain. Cyberbullying came about because social media at the time was in the news and the topic of conversation between celebrities on how people around the world are affected by validation on the amount of "likes" and sexual harassment.
The idea is to use our TV, Digital, and Social Media platforms by creating a viral campaign in which a user would post a picture holding up their right hand and either write or say "#DiNoAlCyberbullying" (Say No to Cyberbullying). We created on-air and digital promotions for the campaign.
Conducting research and gathering data provided information to execute the campaign strategy. The target audiences were both adults 18+ and parents in Latin America and Brazil regions.
