Throughout 2020 Animaccord arranged several multi territorial B2C campaigns aimed at entertaining the audience during the times affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The musical competition “Sing like Masha!”, that’s been designed to encourage kids to sing the song from the Masha and the Bear cartoon and film the performance, was ran in Poland, Mexico and the MENA region. In Poland, the competition was launched on Children’s Day (June 1st) with the support of Animaccord’s CP partners – Simba Dickie Group, Egmont, Trefl, Faro, and Galapagos. In Mexico, the contest was arranged by one of the country’s largest media companies that also broadcast Masha and the Bear – Televisa. In MENA, “Sing like Masha!” was initiated together with the media partner Spacetoon and supported by Simba Dickie Group, Toy Triangle, Event Box and Toys “R”. As the result of the campaign, over 5.500 Masha’s fans took part in the competition across abovementioned countries.
“All in the Family” campaign was also launched to cheer the audience up by releasing entertainment activities and new quarantine content – “What to do at Home?” and “Stay Home” episodes, which are dedicated to the stay at home activities and common hygiene rules.
