Brandenburg Gate ◆ World Championship ◆ presented by E.ON



Task: To put the brand in the best light
E.ON used the festival to emotionalise its own brand. With a spectacular presence, which was made known worldwide via social networks, the company secured broad attention, positive perception and an attractive image transfer.

Idea: E.ON presents the best of the best
E.ON becomes the main partner of the FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS and presents the "World Championship of Projection Mapping". In addition, the company has initiated its own FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS Award. The theme of the award is ideally suited to one's own core competence: "Visions of Energy".

Implementation: A world champion appearance
In 2015, the "World Championship of Projection Mapping" by the Festival of Lights Team took place for the first time on the most symbolic German monument: the Brandenburg Gate. Around the globe, well-known mapping artists have been invited to submit their interpretations and inspirations. The jury selected the finalists from numerous contributions. An online voting also allowed the audience to select their favorites. There was an exciting competition until the winner was announced on the last day of the festival. This was followed in 2016 by the Berlin TV Tower as the venue, in 2017 the Berlin Cathedral. In 2018, E.ON presented its own Special Award "Creating a Better Tomorrow" on the Berlin TV Tower with 18 participants from 7 different regions.

E.ON was at the forefront. The distinctive trademark was projected onto the respective landmarks in the show intro. In addition, E.ON used an extensive catalog of marketing and media services to publicize the events of the World Championship and implemented its own "Heat Map" and #lightsbyeon.

Result: World-wide feedback
More than 2 million people watched the shows of the World Championship live. At the same time, the event was advertised on the FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS communication platform and on all social media channels. The result was impressive: a spectacular event with a global impact - always keeping an eye on the E.ON brand.
