Home Credit Philippines’ Back-To-School Campaign Clinches Silver At 59th Anvil Awards

In a celebration of excellence at the 59th Anvil  Awards, Home Credit Philippines’ innovative “Home Credit is the Key: Back-to-School (BTS)  Campaign” secured the prestigious Silver Anvil in the Marketing and Brand Communication sub category under the Public Relations Programs category.  

The awards ceremony, dubbed the ‘Oscars of Public Relations’ in the Philippines, took place at  the Marriott Grand Ballroom in Newport City on January 31, drawing representatives from  companies and agencies across the country.  

Home Credit, a leading consumer finance company, addressed the challenges faced by parents,  particularly moms, during the back-to-school season. The campaign aimed to empower mothers  as the primary financial decision-makers and budget planners in their families, navigating the  rising costs of education and school supplies. 

Running from July 1 to September 30, 2023, the “Home Credit is the Key” campaign provided a  backup for moms by offering affordable financing options. Home Credit introduced zero-interest  payment plans, easing the financial burden on mothers striving to provide their children with the  best education. Flexible payment plans were also made available, ensuring that the cost of  education could be spread over manageable installments, thus alleviating financial strain.

“We understand the challenges that parents face during the back-to-school season. Our Back-to School Campaign aimed to provide not just financial assistance but also peace of mind to mothers  who work tirelessly to ensure their children receive a quality education. Winning the Silver Anvil  is a testament to the campaign’s impact and the recognition of our Public Relations efforts to  support families in this crucial aspect of their lives,” said Ken Lerona, Head of PR, Home Credit  Philippines.  

The campaign also emphasized maintaining peace of mind for mothers by using Home Credit’s  services, allowing them to preserve their savings as a safety net for emergencies or future  investments.  

The campaign strategically employed public relations and communication tactics to engage and  empower its target audience, specifically mothers and their children. Home Credit Philippines  collaborated with its agency-on-record, Dugenia, Marayan and Associates Company (DM&A Co.),  to implement this compelling initiative.  

A key aspect of the campaign’s success was the dissemination of impactful narratives to various  media titles, partners, and bloggers. By pitching these powerful stories, the campaign effectively  resonated with the intended audience, making their back-to-school shopping experience easier  and lighter.  

Working with Home Credit Philippines on this campaign was a rewarding experience. We aimed to not only meet the challenges faced by parents but to exceed expectations in providing practical solutions. The Silver Anvil is a validation of the effectiveness and innovation embedded in our approach, said Michael Dugenia, Managing Partner of DM&A Co.

The Anvil Awards, presented by the Public Relations Society of the Philippines (PRSP), received  nearly 500 entries from over 100 companies and agencies, including local government units. The  59th Anvil Awards showcased new categories under PR Programs, such as Best Use of Digital,  Best Use of Social Media, and Best PR-led Integrated Campaign.  

Home Credit Philippines’ Back-to-School Campaign stood out among the top entries, securing  the Silver Anvil, and reinforcing its commitment to excellence in community support.
