ESPOO, Finland--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Rovio is delighted to announce that Angry Birds Seasons: On Finn Ice - a mobile game collaboration between Visit Finland and Rovio Entertainment - was recently awarded The Drum’s MOMA award for Best Travel/Leisure/Sports Mobile Strategy Campaign at the annual awards dinner in London, England.
The MOMAs (Marketing on Mobile Awards) reward the most effective campaigns in the mobile space and celebrate the most innovative work and companies across various industries.
The goal of the project was for Visit Finland to find new audiences and raise Finland's profile by going where the audience is – online and mobile. Partnering with Rovio meant that in less than two months from launch, Angry Birds fans had played over 250 million game sessions of On Finn Ice, and to date there has been more than 28 million Finland themed in-game fact card views, over 25 million video views related to the project as well as over 2 million new visits to visitfinland.com. The project also generated hundreds of thousands of social media engagements.
“Angry Birds is the most downloaded game of all time, and partnering up with Rovio allowed us to connect with new audiences through enthusiasm and imagination.” said Mervi Holmén, Director Nation Brand & Marketing, Visit Finland. “We had great expectations when we began our collaboration and those expectations were not only met but surpassed. Working with Angry Birds was an incredibly fun way of presenting Finland, and the amount of positive reaction we received was phenomenal!”
“Rovio is a true storyteller that’s constantly on the lookout for new and innovative ways for our fans to engage with the brand, and the magical beauty of the Finnish winter made for a particularly exciting story and experience.” said Edvard Groundstroem, Executive Producer, Rovio Entertainment.
