Cox Advocacy Network
NM-DK-01
New Media Campaign - Cable System III
Cox Communications
Phoenix, AZ
Cox Advocacy NetworkThe key objective of Cox Communications Arizona was to create an innovative grassroots advocacy Web site that allowed employees, contractors, vendors, cable industry partners and other stakeholders to quickly and easily 1.) Learn about public policy issues affecting Cox Communications and 2.) Impact those issues by contacting lawmakers. The Cox Advocacy Network was developed and launched to support Cox Arizona’s major legislative initiative, the 2006 Cable Customer Tax Relief Act. During the legislative session, Cox employees and other advocates generated over 4500 messages to Arizona lawmakers in support of the legislation. Over 22% of Cox employees sent at least one message to their lawmaker. On March 3, 2006, Governor Janet Napolitano signed into law the 2006 Cable Customer Tax Relief Act.

Stop Breast Cancer for Life Web Site
NM-DN-03
New Media Campaign - Cable Network II
Lifetime Television
New York, NY
Stop Breast Cancer for LifeThis year, in Lifetime’s 12th annual “Stop Breast Cancer for Life” public awareness and advocacy campaign, the Network wanted to find a way to engage its audience in a new, more interactive way. The programming centerpiece of the campaign was a touching and irreverent film called “Why I Wore Lipstick to My Mastectomy,” based on the memoir of Lifetime executive Geralyn Lucas who faced breast cancer at age 27. Lifetime wanted to complement the young, fresh tone of the film in new media and technology and at the same time, encourage young women to become vigilant about their breast health. With the addition of a daily blog entitled the “Daily Pink,” enhanced content, features and photo galleries, interviews with celebrities and experts, as well as new partnerships with Amazon.com and RealArcade, the breast cancer site received more than 1,127,189 visitors during the month of October, an increase of 38 percent over the previous year.
