Singapore, 27 May 2015 - "See The Big Picture", a PR campaign organised by Singapore Press Holdings Limited (SPH) in celebration of its 30th anniversary last year, won the Best Use of Mobile award at The MARKies this evening, held at Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore. The MARKies, organised by Marketing-Interactive, aim to celebrate the most creative and effective campaigns or projects spanning Singapore's diverse marketing services industry. It evaluates individual entries focusing on either creative ideas or the innovative use of media. Mr Alan Chan, Chief Executive Officer of SPH, said: "The 'See The Big Picture' campaign demonstrated our desire and ability to constantly innovate and engage all our stakeholders using our wide spectrum of media platforms. Besides being an effective media and PR campaign, it also showcases our active corporate citizenry."The “See the Big Picture” campaign organised by SPH and Germs Digital featured autistic savant Stephen Wiltshire, who drew Singapore's cityscape from memory at Paragon in July 2014. It attracted over 150,000 visitors in five days. As part of its active corporate citizenry, SPH also invited special needs and underprivileged children to meet and interact with Mr Wiltshire. The 4m X 1m Singapore panorama was presented to President Tony Tan Keng Yam last September, as SPH's gift to the nation for Singapore's 50th birthday. It is now on display at URA’s Singapore City Gallery. SPH has given merchandising rights of the artwork to Pathlight School. Pathlight, the first autism-focused school in Singapore that offers a unique blend of mainstream academic curriculum and life readiness skills, has produced exclusive prints and unique merchandise adapted from the artwork. All net proceeds of the sales will go to Autism Resource Centre, in aid of people with autism.
