From the 9th Annual Shorty Awards

JBL x NBA  – The NBA Draft #JBLDraftSuit.

Entered in Integrated Campaign, Snapchat Filter/Lens, Branded Content

About this entry

JBL is the Official Sound of the NBA and typically signs a few of the key Draft players to be a part of #TeamJBL. The main goal was to increase awareness of the partnership & drive cultural relevancy for JBL within NBA culture. Additionally, the content needed to increase social engagement for JBL and ultimately drive sales of JBL headphones and portables.

Finally, the creative had to deliver on the brand's NBA platform, "Made For the Biggest Stage".

Why does this entry deserve to win?

The rookies at the Draft have spent their lives dreaming of one moment: hearing their name read by the Commissioner at the NBA Draft. Getting drafted is the ultimate validation that they were born to play on biggest stage.

Our players' commitment to excelling at every facet of the game embodies JBL's approach to developing state-of-the-art audio products. Both are worthy of the biggest stage because both JBL & our NBA players have earned it by constantly proving themselves with performance. And at the heart of those performances is music.

Music inspires these players to perform at the absolute highest level.

"Made For the Biggest Stage" celebrates the unique parallels between JBL and the NBA.

JBL built branded content around what the NBA Draftees would wear when they stepped onto the biggest stage for the NBA Draft. Fans were able to follow the contest using #JBLDraftSuit and were able to vote for the suits they liked best from the videos. Snapchat Filters were created to support the campaign at the draft and at JBL-sponsored draft parties at the Harman Store and Lucky Strike.
