From the 11th Annual Shorty Awards

IFC

Bronze Distinction in Humor

Entered in Television

About this entry

IFC tasked GLOW with positioning their network as an authority in the off-beat comedy space on social. In order to make that happen, we needed to transform the IFC social accounts from content promoters to content producers.

By diving into the wealth of IFC's original series and licensed movie content, we created uniquely eccentric online commentary to help IFC overcome the perception that they're just "that channel with Portlandia." We activated more new fans than ever by offering an idiosyncratic lens in which to view the current cultural conversation. Since we know that online audiences are constantly hungry for new humor, we made sure that the IFC accounts packed the punchlines.

Why does this entry deserve to win?

As a nod to IFC's tagline, 'Always on, Slightly Off', we took the approach of being always on trend, but slightly off.

We knew IFC had the opportunity to be more than just another brand with a "take" on the trends of the day. Anybody can do that. We strove to make IFC a brand with a delightfully strange, irreverent view on the current moment — like that person at the party who always has a unique perspective and a witty comment up their sleeve.

Luckily for us, IFC's content is riddled with referential humor and in-jokes — many of which are perfect for social commentary. Using this original and licensed content, we poked fun at everyday trends and the never-ending political circus by creating custom memes, clever tweets, and #relatable videos tailored to shake up the social platforms and make people laugh.
