PRWeek UK Awards Winners 2016: Technology

Brands2Life's 'High-Speed Selfies' for Virgin Media's Network Expansion almost literally blew away the opposition to win the category.

PRWeek UK Awards Winners 2016: Technology

The biggest broadband infrastructure project in a generation called for a launch of equally ambitious proportions. The response was Virgin Media’s High-Speed Selfie booth. Participants were blasted with air at a speed of more than 270mph while taking a selfie, leading to some entertaining (and highly sharable) pictures.

In total, 940,000 people viewed the branded experience when it was stationed in cities across the country – and 4,000 people took part. One could say they were blown away.
