Glico Philippines, Inc. (Manila, Philippines) is pleased to announce the winning a Bronze in Pocky day 2019 and Pocky day 2020 at the ICE Awards 2021 organized by MSAP.

MANILA, Philippines, 30th MARCH 2022

Glico Philippines Inc won Bronze in ICE Awards 2021. “Pocky day 2019” and “Pocky day 2020” communication were awarded as innovation, creativity, and effectiveness executions under the category of Multimedia. ICE Awards is an award ceremony that recognizes the media practitioners who have shown innovation, creativity, and effectiveness organized by The Media Specialists Association of the Philippines (MSAP).

Pocky day 2019 campaign

The 'Say Pocky!' and smile campaign was launched on Pocky day, Nov 11, with users encouraged to take a selfie and smile. A 'smile analyzer' technology adds filters to the selfies and assigns a 'smile score', with the photos shareable across social. High-reach digital platforms such as Facebook, YouTube programmatic, and KOLs drove awareness, alongside LED billboards and activations in LRT / MRT stations and key office buildings, partnerships and sponsorships, including presence in Glorietta 2's Japan Town roof deck, further amplified the campaign in the Philippines.

Pocky day 2020 campaign

Pocky day 2020 campaign – The 'Say Pocky! Cheer Street View campaign' launched on Pocky day, Nov 11, where users could drop 'smile pins' in designated areas in Google Maps Street View. Friends were also encouraged to create similarly-colored pins to form a 'smile-relay', so they can be together even virtually. A multi-media strategy in the Philippines raised campaign awareness with high-reach digital placements playing a primary role, supported by strategic OOH, KOL partnerships, and event sponsorships.

We are really excited to have won the prizes at the ICE Awards 2021. The pandemic has led to an increase in anxiety levels and unhappiness, as the future continues to be unpredictable social conditions. We have thought, ‘What can Pocky help create shared moments of happiness to bring genuine smiles back?’ Pocky is designed to be shareable, and simply saying 'Pocky!' can bring smiles to people's faces. We believe that Pocky can be used to bring ‘Share happiness!’ among all generations.

- Mr Takashi Miki, Marketing Head, Glico Philippines, Inc.

In addition, to celebrate the Award, Glico Philippines Inc will hold a promotion in the LazMall and Shopee Mall from 15th – 17th April 2022. Please check it out.
