HSBC UK & Shelter win Grand Prix at Outdoor Media Awards 2021


HSBC UK & Shelter’s “Addressing the ‘No Fixed Address’ problem” by Talon Outdoor / PHD / Wunderman Thompson UK has won the Grand Prix at the Outdoor Media Awards 2021.

The prize of £100,000 worth of media space to use across Clear Channel’s UK screens was presented at an online awards ceremony by comedian Russell Kane on 10 June.

Gill Reid, partner and head of out of home at MediaCom UK, is the inaugural winner of the new Outstanding Contribution to Outdoor Award. The shortlist for this award, created to recognise those in senior roles who have helped to make a difference to the industry throughout their careers, was put to a public vote.

The Rising Star Award is shared this year by Hannah Payne, trading executive at Kinetic, and Jack Monaghan, insight manager at Rapport, who emerged as joint winners from among the biggest shortlist for the trophy to date.

The awards, run by Clear Channel in partnership with Campaign and chaired by Campaign UK editor-in-chief Gideon Spanier, celebrate the best in outdoor advertising and the people within it – and this year attracted a record number of 200-plus entries.

Purpose-driven advertising and tech innovation were prominent themes, reflecting an extraordinary year.

HSBC & Shelter’s campaign, which also picked up a Gold in the National Social Impact category, draws attention to the cycle of financial exclusion perpetuated within homelessness: without a home, it’s hard to open a bank account; and without a bank account, you have no safe space to keep money and difficulty accessing government benefits and wages.

To remove these barriers and break this cycle, HSBC UK offers a “No Fixed Address” service, partnering with charities – including Shelter – who then act as the applicants’ home address. 

Lego Group’s “LEGO ‘Rebuild The World’: Mid-Air Haptics” by Rapport / Initiative, which triumphed in the Tech Innovation category, used haptic (touchless) technology. The 28 judges – selected from brands, plus creative and media agencies – also noted that data intelligence was embedded in many of the entries across all award categories.

The campaign categories, which were revamped in 2020, span creative, planning, effectiveness, a platform for good and talent. Golds, silvers and bronzes were awarded in each and the Grand Prix chosen from among category winners.
