Our Awards


SPH iink Awards MANDATE BAGS A GOLD AT THE MARKETING EVENTS AWARDS 2014

Organised by Marketing magazine, the Marketing Events Awards honours the very best in Asia’s event marketing, management and planning industry. It is the key event for event marketers and planners, recognising creative excellence, strategic marketing, and operational precision. The results were announced to a packed audience at the swanky W Hotel – Sentosa Cove.

Amidst the strong local and overseas contenders in the category of “BEST EVENT FOR COMMUNITY SERVICE”, Mandate is proud to win a Gold for “Die Die Must Say”, a first-of-its- kind campaign for Lien Foundation and Ang Chin Moh Foundation.

With an aim to encourage Chinese elderly Singaporeans to discuss about death and end-of- life issues, the campaign leveraged on ‘Getai’ – a popular live stage performance among the target audience – to spread the message. It was a groundbreaking attempt that engaged the audience effectively.

We are delighted that the campaign has received great response and our effort is duly recognised by our peers in the industry.

In the competitive category of “Print Classified / Recruitment / Notice”, Mandate is pleased to pick up a gold and a silver for the series of unorthodox ads for Lien Foundation.
