achtung! wins W&V’s Client Award with RTL II and FOX
W&V magazine has once again presented a Client Award this year which it says is the first and only German creative prize that is exclusively awarded by advertisers for daring, exceptional and relevant campaigns – which is how the jury viewed our Facebook live game “Apocalypse Live” that kicked off the new season of THE WALKING DEAD.
Katrin, who was responsible for the project, was delighted to accept the award together with Kristina Wiesner (Vice President Marketing Creation & Advertising, RTL II) at the Gloria Filmpalast in Munich. Our chief strategist Max Ströbel proved to be a pretty good photographer too!

ADC Festival: 12 Nails for the Elbphilharmonie and “Apocalypse Live”
achtung! wins two of the prestigious Nails at the German ADC Creative Festival. The jury recognized the Facebook live game “Apocalypse live” that kicked off the new season of THE WALKING DEAD on RTL II and FOX with two Bronze Nails in the categories of “Interactive Online Film” and “Social Media”.
The campaign for the Elbphilharmonie concert hall has amassed a total of 10 Nails. Working with Jung von Matt and on behalf of Hamburg Musik, Hamburg Marketing and the city’s cultural authority, our job was to raise the “Elphi’s” profile worldwide. To this end we have built a dedicated international network of more than ten agencies for the Elphi that we manage from Hamburg.
achtung! appears no fewer than 9 times on the shortlist at this year’s German Awards for Online Communication. Our social media team has been nominated as Team of the Year – as the only agency. Our “Apocalypse Live” project for FOX and RTL II numbers among the finalists in the “Influencer Communication” category. The “Malin versus Goliath” project is on the shortlist as an NGO campaign to prevent the proposed Fehmarn Belt Tunnel. We are also thrilled to have six nominations for our campaign to mark the opening of the Elbphilharmonie that we executed with our colleagues at Jung von Matt. Madness!
On June 8 we will have the opportunity to persuade the jury again, in person. We’re keeping our fingers crossing for our presenters – you can do it!
