Throughout the evening, a series of awards were presented across six disciplines: Brand Building, Business Impact, Customer Experience, Engagement, Innovative Media, and Public Relations. Within each discipline, entries compete in one of eight categories (Automotive, Business, Consumer Products & Services, Financial, Food and Beverage, Healthcare, Retail/Consumer Businesses, and Social Causes).

Brand Building


Award: Gold
Campaign: Uncharted Playgrounds
Client: BRP
Agency: Touché!

BRP, a world-class all-terrain vehicle producer, is facing a growth barrier due to the limited opportunities and accessibility to lands. This challenge gave birth to Uncharted Playgrounds: an online booking system that connects riders to landowners. Think Airbnb… but for off-road riders!

Business/Brand Impact


Award: Gold
Campaign: The True Urban Legend
Client: Subaru Canada
Agency: Zulu Alpha Kilo

Subaru Crosstrek is a highly rated vehicle held back by low familiarity. We leaned into the fact that our target might not have heard of Crosstrek by making the campaign all about the mystery. By presenting Crosstrek as “the true urban legend”, we helped propel it past the competition to a 60% sales increase.

Instead, they anchored the work with a decisive point of view: Tomorrow is on. And enlisted a sure-footed rooster to carry the message forward.

Business/Brand Impact


Award: Gold
Campaign: First Day
Client: Scotiabank
Agency: Rethink

There’s a lot of cookie cutter financial advice for newcomers, but the best advice comes from someone who was once in their shoes. Scotiabank’s ‘First Day’ campaign asked Canadians ‘What advice would you give yourself on your first day in Canada?’ and used that real advice to create a nuanced, empathy-driven 360 campaign.

Campaign: Heinz Ketchup Fraud
Client: Kraft Heinz
Agency: Rethink

When we learned that restaurants all around the world were refilling Heinz bottles with generic ketchup, we knew we had to act. So, we launched Ketchup Fraud – a 360 campaign that called out this secret behaviour and inspired our fans to demand that they be served the real deal. Proving to restaurants all around the world that It Has To Be Heinz.

Campaign: Philadelphia Schmear Socks
Client: Kraft Heinz Philadelphia Cream Cheese
Agency: Rethink & Middle Child

When Nike announced Montreal-inspired Bagel Dunks, we knew they were missing something – cream cheese. Available in our three iconic flavours (Original, Strawberry, Chive & Onion), Philly Schmear Socks let people decide how they wanted to top their Bagel Dunks. Because no bagel is complete without Philadelphia, even if that bagel is a shoe.

Campaign: Heinz Slow This Ad
Client: Kraft Heinz
Agency: Rethink

To show the world the power of slow, Heinz created a media placement that had never existed before. Why? So we could air the world’s first-ever 0.57 second ad, which could only be understood in slow motion. And when people successfully slowed it down, they would be rewarded with a hidden DoorDash voucher code.

Award: Gold
Campaign: F*cking Old
Client: Jems
Agency: Dentsu Creative Canada

The condom industry overwhelmingly speaks to young men, which makes the condom aisle feel like an overwhelming place to shop. But Jems is designed for an evolving multiplicity of sex and gender expressions and isn’t shy about it, so we decided to focus on another, often overlooked target: seniors. Whose STI rates were shocking.

Customer Experience


Award: Gold
Campaign: Trending 2 Table
Client: Voilà
Agency: FCB

TikTok is the source for viral food trends, causing ingredients to sell out during recipe frenzies. Voilà converted viral recipes into orders with a bespoke Trend Index to identify and capitalize on trends just as recipe views were hitting critical mass. We shortened the path to purchase by making TikToks shoppable for delivery in just one click.

Award: Gold
Campaign: Fear Windows
Client: La Maison grise de Montréal

In fiction, femicide is seen as entertainment. But the problem is very real: 184 women were murdered in the context of domestic violence in 2022 alone. So on Halloween, a night that glorifies fictional violence, La Maison Grise designed decals depicting scenes of domestic abuse, empowering people to fight femicides using their own windows.

Premiere Award Winners

Eva Salem

Eva Salem
Senior Vice-President of Marketing and Brand
Canadian Tire Corporation

 

Biography

Eva Salem is the Senior Vice-President of Marketing and Brand at Canadian Tire Corporation (CTC), a role she was appointed to in January 2022 following eight years of success across progressive positions at CTC. As the senior-most brand marketer in the organization, Eva oversees all marketing and brand activities for Canadian Tire Retail (CTR), SportChek, Mark’s, Triangle Rewards, and CTC’s Owned Brands portfolio. She also leads CTC’s ESG strategy, sustainability initiatives, community involvement, content creation, and sponsorship.

Eva has elevated the role and influence of Marketing across CTC and is a driving force behind the company’s ongoing digital and customer-led transformation. As a leader, she fosters a collaborative environment, building agile, omnichannel, award-winning teams that drive deeper connections through data and insights to create more meaningful customer engagement.

Eva was instrumental in rebranding and launching Triangle Rewards, Canada’s largest and fastest-growing loyalty program with record-high credit acquisitions. Throughout the pandemic, she repositioned the CTC brand as a one-stop shop for helping Canadians navigate the challenges of COVID-19, resulting in unprecedented business growth and share gains. In 2022, Eva played a critical role in the evolution of CTC’s Brand Purpose and CTR’s year-long centennial birthday celebrations. Eva also uses her marketing expertise to lead CTC’s ESG journey; as the senior executive lead for ESG, Eva has shifted CTC’s mindset from risk and regulation to brand differentiation and business opportunity.

Eva holds an honours degree from Ivey Business School, and completed executive programs at Oxford, Harvard and Insead. She sits on the boards of Ad Standards of Canada, Canadian Tire Jumpstart Charities, and Rethink Breast Cancer, and is an active member of the Sinai Health and Princess

Margaret Hospital marketing committees. She has driven industry acclaim for CTR, which was named Canada’s Most Reputable Brand in 2020 by Léger, Canada’s Most Trusted Brand in 2023 by Morning Consult and the third most trusted retailer in the world by Newsweek/Statista in 2023. During Eva’s tenure, CTC has garnered the most creative campaign awards in its 100-year history. Eva’s leadership has not gone unnoticed; in 2020, she was recognized as one of the Globe and Mail’s Report on Business Best Executives, Strategy Magazine’s

Marketer of the Year in 2021, and the WXN’s Top 100 Most Powerful Women in 2022.

Professional Accomplishments

When CTC marked the hundredth birthday of CTR in 2022, Eva recognized the centennial as an inflection point: an opportunity to celebrate the company’s history while demonstrating its conviction to be Canada’s store for the next 100 years. To achieve this, Eva drove two key transitions:

  • CTC from a product-led to a purpose-led company by shifting to marketing that showcases the brand’s values and seeks to better the lives of Canadians through unique experiences.
  • CTR to a position of increased relevancy and loyalty among a new cohort of younger consumers.
    The centennial began with Eva leading the evolution of CTC’s Brand Purpose – We Are Here to Make Life in Canada Better – a seismic shift that united the company and its employees. As the purpose also forms the basis of CTC’s multi-year Better Connected business strategy, Eva played a critical role in developing the company’s roadmap for long-term success and growth.
    With the strategy set, Eva led her team to achieve the organization’s goals by driving deeper customer connections with a core growth segment: Young Millennial Families. With 76% of CTC Triangle loyalty members over the age of 39, it was critical to appeal to younger consumers to drive CTC’s continued success and future growth. Armed with the insight that millennials prefer experiences, seek value beyond price, and expect corporate purpose to be more than profit, Eva focused the year-long omnichannel birthday campaign on including innovative and engaging experiences, meaningful community initiatives, and a focus on value, such as:
  • Partnering with The Tragically Hip to re-record their infamous track “Ahead by a Century” (with Young Voices Toronto Children’s Choir) and raising $220,000 to empower girls across the country to be leaders in sport through the Keep Her in Play initiative.
  • A curated assortment of 40 commemorative products that sold 4.5 million units and extended the reach of the campaign.
  • A first-of-its-kind VR Christmas Tree decorator that saw 7,000 downloads and 400,000 visits in a matter of weeks.
  • A national “phygital” treasure hunt for CT Money, that grew TikTok followers by 6,000%.
  • 15 influencer campaigns with 187 influencers garnering +488M media impressions, +17.7M engagements, and 320+ pieces of content.
  • A new Triangle Rewards integrated campaign gifted thousands of prizes to those who signed up for the program and offered double CT Money at gas stations when prices were at an all-time high.


Additional Details

Eva Salem forwards Canadian marketing by demonstrating and advocating for marketers to use their influence for the betterment of society. Eva and her team have proven CTC’s Brand Purpose is more than a tagline by consistently activating it over the past year, including publishing CTC’s first-ever ESG report, helping Jumpstart achieve record-setting fundraising results, and overseeing CTC’s Hurricane Fiona and Wildfire Relief efforts.

Eva’s purpose-driven leadership also demonstrates that marketers can drive meaningful social change. Under Eva’s direction, CTC was the first corporate sponsor to end its relationship with Hockey Canada due to its mishandling of sexual assault allegations; other sponsors followed, which ultimately forced

Hockey Canada to make necessary changes. CTC redirected its funds to other hockey organizations, such as the Black Girl Hockey Club and the national women’s para ice hockey team, and reaffirmed its commitment to gender equity through its Women’s Sport Initiative, a multi-million-dollar investment through which CTC will commit 50% of its sponsorship dollars to women’s professional sports. Eva continues to support women in sport as a member of the Jumpstart Board and championed evolving its mandate to focus on girls in sport, including launching new initiatives that reinforce a positive self-image and leadership, such as Play to Lead and Keep Her in Play.

Eva not only leads with purpose – she lives with purpose. Eva mentors future talent, including as a staunch supporter of CTC’s Emerging Marketers program, which proactively recruits and fast-tracks marketing talent to create bench strength and a viable path to the C-suite for marketers. Eva regularly judges panels and shares her insights as a speaker, including at the Marketing Evolution Summit and Retail Council of Canada’s Retail Marketing Conference in 2022. She promotes Canadian advertising and marketing excellence and is focused on increasing awareness of marketing’s expanded role in driving business growth. Eva also sits on the Ad Standards Board of Canada, a non-profit, self-regulating body that works to ensure the integrity and viability of advertising in Canada. Eva believes it is equally important to use her marketing expertise to support women’s causes, including as a Board member of Rethink Breast Cancer and promoting women’s health issues as a member of Sinai Health’s and Princess Margaret Hospital’s marketing advisory committees.


Zak Mroueh

Zak Mroueh
Chief Creative Officer & Founder
Zulu Alpha Kilo

 

Biography

Zak’s track record of creativity and innovation spans 35 years as copywriter, creative director, and entrepreneur. Since the moment he entered the industry, he’s been a force for change.
But in 1987, Mroueh didn’t think he had a hope in hell for a career in advertising. Zak was told he didn’t have the right credentials, connections, or that all-important “in." All 300 application letters he sent were rejected. He finally landed a spot in the Saatchi & Saatchi mailroom. From there, he spent a year at Sears as a direct mail writer, followed by stints at SMW, Chiat\Day, BBDO, and McCann UK.

In 1999, Zak joined TAXI as a partner and creative director, leading the shop to global acclaim, winning no fewer than seven Agency of the Year titles. He oversaw work for iconic brands like BMW MINI, Canadian Tire, WestJet, Nike, Viagra, and TELUS.

In 2007, he left TAXI to found Zulu Alpha Kilo (aka “ZAK” in the NATO phonetic alphabet). With offices in Toronto, Vancouver, and New York, the agency has grown into a thriving 181-person shop. Mroueh has continued to create famous work for brands like Bell, Cineplex, Interac, Harley-Davidson, HomeEquity Bank, and Subaru.

Zak has built Zulu Alpha Kilo into one of the world’s top independent shops. Under his leadership, it’s been recognized as Agency of the Year by major international trades Campaign, The Drum, and Ad Age.
In 2021, Zak was inducted into the AMA (American Marketing Association) Canadian Marketing Hall of Legends.


Professional Accomplishments

Zak’s exceptional marketing leadership is underscored by three overarching themes that have made a significant positive impact on the industry and the individuals fortunate enough to work with him.

  1. Challenging Industry Norms

    Every industry has its norms, even though they might not be good for the business and its people. Zak fearlessly challenged conventions for the better of our industry.

  2. Pushing the Boundaries of Creativity and Innovation

    Zak is a beacon of creativity and innovation. His agency’s founding belief is “The World Needs More Creativity” and the culture that he fostered made the shop a magnet for top talent and ambitious clients.

  3. A Champion of Diversity and Inclusion

    Being a person of colour, Zak built DEI principles into his agency from its founding. He has always been someone who believes in helping under-represented groups. Zak launched his own scholarship program for BIPOC students called 20Doors. At a personal cost of $250,000, his initiative is providing 20 scholarships over 5 years, and Mroueh is personally mentoring all 20 students (8 scholarships have been awarded). Furthermore, Zak and his team have published their own DEI Progress Report for the past three years, openly sharing the agency’s journey.


Additional Details

Zak is a true Canadian creative leader, mentor, and builder of talent. Since his career started in the 1980s, Zak has been a champion of Canadian creativity and local talent. And in an industry of oversized egos, Zak prefers to be known as someone who follows through on the work and wants others around him to succeed. During his 9 years at TAXI and 15 years since founding Zulu Alpha Kilo, Zak has proudly recruited and mentored young creative talent who have gone on to run many of Canada’s top agencies (Christina Yu, Jordan Doucette, Dave Douglass, Lance Martin, Alexis Bronstorph, to name just a few—the full list reads as a who’s who of Canadian advertising). And in 2017, realizing that the ad industry had developed a bad reputation for unpaid internships, Zak conceived and launched an “employeeship” program that pays students for interviews and then awards full-time jobs to graduating students. The program is now in its sixth year and has inspired other agencies to create similar programs.

Ashley was tasked with creating an assignment for the students based on a challenge the brand was facing, e.g. how to engage millennials and then provided feedback on each student’s submission. The Seneca Professor expressed her gratitude for Ashley’s engaging and insightful presentation which was well received by the students.

Ashley also represents the marketing team for the annual Take Your Kids to Work program and presents to Grade 9 students about her education, her role and the experiences she has acquired in her years with Kruger Products.

Having been the point person for the Crohn’s and Colitis Canada partnership, Ashley led a group of employee volunteers to participate in the annual fundraising walk. The pandemic did not deter Ashley who found a way to engage employees through a gamification campaign that translated the real life, Cones For Crohn’s initiative into a fun and interactive platform online encouraging people to participate and donate to the cause.
