The BDO Remit videos starring endorser Piolo Pascual were launched last year. To bring them closer to customers, the bank partnered with Star Magic’s Rise Artists Studio to have Piolo guest on its “We Rise Together” online show, and get support from its online influencer network. This strategy gave BDO an Excellence Award in the Media Relations category.

Meanwhile, the bank’s “Kabayan, Kasangga, Kasama” campaign, which created awareness for its BDO Remit videos bagged a Merit Award in the Marketing, Advertising, and Brand Communication category. The campaign culminated in one of the first virtual presscons in the Philippines amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

More Awards in the Audio-Visual Category

BDO also brought home accolades in the Audio/Visual category for their advocacy videos. Since these are aimed at different target audiences, they have effectively communicated their messages across different markets.

  • An Excellence Award for its “Banking on the Filipino” video. This features the bank’s financial inclusion programs and inspires support from its managers and executives during its annual officers’ meeting.
  • A Merit Award for its video for millennials. It features young influencer Angelique Manto getting advice from BDO brand ambassador Pia Wurtzbach on how she can manage her finances better.
  • A Merit Award for its Valentine’s Day-themed financial education video. “Payo para sa Puso” was developed as a response to a report that shows the need for millennials to handle their money more responsibly.
