Fetch Media, The 7 Stars and Cheq sweep up at TheDrum Digital Advertising Awards 2019

The results were unveiled at a black-tie ceremony in London's Marriot Grosvenor Square hotel, on May 1.

For it's work with The Telegraph, Fetch Media snapped up the coveted Grand Prix, as well as the Most Effective Use of Performance and Omni-Channel awards.


After recognising that their traditional print audience was in natural decline, The Telegraph and Fetch were challenged with how to make the brand relevant to a younger, mobile-first audience. By uniquely combining audience data and editorial expertise, to deliver meaningful content across platforms using dynamic, automated advertising, the campaign made high quality journalism relevant to a whole new audience.

Judge and vice president of global programmatic strategy, David Goddard said: “This highlights the innovative work required to financially support quality journalism in a time when news and politics needs a trusted voice more than ever. This successful campaign required a clear understanding of the telegraph audience and product and thus brought together multiple stakeholders to influence this important advertising campaign.

"The result is a highly successful, award winning, audience growing, business model supporting, industry defining campaign. And did I forget to say it was a mobile only campaign too.”

Another top win of the evening came from The 7 Stars for Twinings, taking home the Effective Digital Media Buy and FMCG accolades.
