What was the Challenge / Background of the Campaign?
The Department of Health decided to focus on the positive effects of a smoke-free life to family members. Highlighting the fact that children model themselves on their parents, copying not only their good traits and habits but also their bad ones, a multimedia campaign was launched. Using women's weeklies to target the core audience of loving mothers, a series of advertorials was developed showing kids copying funny parental behaviour. 47 000 successful quits were directly attributable to the campaign.
