Dubai Lynx 2013/ PR Silver: Пророкът

След премиерата на трейлъра на филм за Innocence of Muslims’ през юли 2012 г., който разгневи мюсюлманите по целия свят, екипът на Катарския телеком QTel, стартира кампания, основана на диалога „между различните”. Те дават възможност на толерантните мюсюлмани да си изразят недоволството по един интелигентен начин и с това да подпомогнат за утоляване на страстите. Акцент в инициативата е възможността всеки да изрази/изпише отношението си по темата, като сподели мисли и чувства на специално пригодена за целта стена, поставена на ключово място в Доха.  Агенцията е LEO BURNETT QATAR Doha, QATAR.

Describe the campaign/entry:
In July 2012, the trailer of the movie "Innocence of Muslims" went online depicting Prophet Mohammed as ruthless imbecile. Suddenly, Muslims were blinded by rage. What started as an instinctive reaction, ended up being violent and deadly giving a very bad image about Islam and Muslims as well as doing the opposite of Prophet's Mohammed teachings. Once again, the angry few were representing the tolerant many. Frustrated Muslims were looking to break away from these suffocating and unjust stereotypes. As a telecom operator we wanted to give the majority, the tolerant Muslims, the opportunity to be heard. We started the conversation with social media and an ad showing the prophet’s stamp with one of his quotes “I was sent to perfect honorable morals”. To further change people’s behaviors and break the stereotype we invited them and the media to continue this conversation face to face with both Muslims and non-Muslims at our meeting point. We took over an entire wall in Doha’s biggest malls, allowing people to express their thoughts. Ultimately, Qtel gave the media and people something positive to cover and talk about, revealing the neglected truth and shining light on the tolerant many.

With such a sensitive topic we didn’t want to add more fuel to the fire. As a result we kept our creative solution simple, straightforward and honest. We took over a wall at one of Doha’s busiest malls and asked people to write down their thoughts on the whole situation. We initially drove people to the activation by starting the conversation with our print and social media communication. We quickly realized that with the right timing and sensibility, the simplest and most honest creative idea can have the biggest impacts on people’s lives.

The response was overwhelmingly positive. Within a few hours people where gathering themselves around our wall. Filling up the wall with messages of peace, understanding and tolerance, the media closely covered the entire event and spread a much needed positive message in a clutter of doom and gloom headlines. A total of 1,322 messages where written down with the best ones being shared on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook, with our top posts getting 2,806; 1640 and 2187 “likes” as well as hundreds of shares and comments. All local TV channels covered the event. All local newspapers published photos and quotes from the event online and offline. Furthermore, we brought Muslims and non-Muslims together in one physical space, which generated real human interaction and helped bring down walls of misconception.
