Shapam – 95.5FM: Don't kill yourself over craft

Don't kill yourself over craft. Rise to glory through radio.

A print ad that wins an award at the Cannes Lions or gets published by Luerzers Archive Magazine is every creative team’s wet dream. However, the competition becomes more challenging every year. To promote radio advertising, we created an ad reminding creative teams to stop investing all their time and energy on super-complicated craft. After all, fame and glory can just as easily come from creative radio spots.

Advertising Agency: Y&R Israel

Valid point, but a radio Lion is still no low-hanging fruit.

Good radio is just as hard and takes just as much craft as print, if not more so.

Also, I don't see the point of using a stereotypical/racist muslim caricature in an ad. Especially coming from an Israeli agency. Dumb on many levels.

Naive approach to the industry.
Everything requires craft.
Radio is one of the hardest categories.
The fact that there's a rationale for a print ad shows how weak it is.
