The Communication Award recognises the most impactful and successful integrated communications campaign promoting the team’s work ahead of the competition. The winning team is judged on the quality and creativity of the content, the volume of activity as well as the impact of the campaign.
Green Team Twente set out to accomplish three main goals with their communications plan: to document the team’s activities, to promote Green Team Twente and Shell Eco-marathon, and to amplify important information around the advancement of hydrogen as a fuel.
The team developed a detailed communications plan that included the development of specific types of content. The team thoughtfully structured their campaign in three phases – Introduce, Inform and Hype – and used the hashtag #GoGreener throughout all their content, helping to maintain consistency and provide instant reinforcement of Green Team Twente’s name recognition.
Green Team Twente also developed three diverse types of content to support their communications strategy, including entertaining and viral content tied to worldwide trends; informative content documenting key milestones throughout the process; and collaborative content to increase reach across networks. The team promoted content across social media platforms, including Instagram and LinkedIn, at events such as their car launch, and in press activities.
The outbreak of the global COVID-19 pandemic forced Green Team Twente to quickly adjust and adapt their plans. But the team continued to be active on social media and developed new and newsworthy ideas to maintain engagement and reach.
