ICF (NASDAQ:ICFI), a global consulting and technology services provider, announced today that ICF Mostra, its Brussels-based communication agency specializing in institutional communication across Europe, received two gold and one silver award at the prestigious 2017 Cannes Corporate Media & TV Awards. The annual awards ceremony honors the world’s finest corporate films, online media and TV productions.
The company received a Gold Dolphin in the Integrated Communications category for a video produced for the European Commission, Farming: At The Heart of Our Life. The animated video was developed for the Directorate-General (DG) for Agriculture and Rural Development as part of a larger school education campaign to show that farming is more than a job, but also an important way of life.
The company also received a Gold Dolphin in the Environmental Issues and Concerns category for Plastic Bags – Breaking the Habit, a creative clip produced for DG Environment to encourage citizens to reduce their consumption of single-use plastic bags.
“We are often asked to transform complex subject matter into engaging, memorable and visually-arresting stories,” said Tobias Schafer, division director for ICF Mostra. “Winning Cannes Dolphins is humbling and clearly validates the quality, diversity and originality of the audiovisual products we create for our clients and the strategic vision that guides our creative concepts. We are honored to receive these prestigious awards.”
ICF Mostra also took home a Silver Dolphin for a series of videos developed for DG Education and Culture as part of a larger campaign, “From Erasmus to Erasmus+: A Story of 30 Years.” The videos shared stories of those who have benefited from the Erasmus+ experience to showcase the positive impact of the program and to promote the lesser-known opportunities within it.
