Canada’s Best Beauty Talent, a multi-brand, multi-platform reality competition and marketing campaign comprised of 12 high-definition webisodes, is among the nominees for an International Content Marketing Award.
Buck Productions is nominated in the Best Video category, and its contribution was supplemented with social media, print and PR engagement tools. The campaign itself, created by Rogers Media Inc. and L’Oréal Canada, sought out Canada’s best hair and make-up artists. The series is still streaming at bestbeautytalent.com and was available on Rogers On Demand, Rogers On Demand Online and via the Citytv iPad and iPhone video apps.
“Working on Canada’s Best Beauty Talent with Rogers and L’Oréal Canada was an example of the new direction of branded content,” said Sean Buckley, Owner/Executive Producer, Buck Productions. “The project was an example of what can happen when a high-quality concept, superior production, and true collaboration meet. Everyone at Buck would like to congratulate Rogers and L’Oréal on all of their nominations.”
