MediaCom India’s campaign “Ariel removed the stains of Social Inequality” challenged the norm by asking men in India “Is Laundry only a woman’s job?” This brought the debate about equality to the forefront. Men in India spoke up and pledged to contribute to household chores. To support this movement, Ariel launched a new pack, (with detailed instructions) with which even men could do laundry. The campaign was a huge success resulting in 28% uplift in ad recall and 60% increase in sales.

Debraj Tripathy, Managing Director of MediaCom India said, “This is another wonderful recognition for the high quality work that we deliver for our clients. We have been consistently winning across international award forums. Congratulations to each and every member of the MediaCom India team. Super thrilled ! ”
