Did your agency waste food this year? Adfest Young Lotus Contest call for ideas…

FCB Interface has conceptualised the theme for Adfest 2019 Young Lotus contest, inviting ideas to end food wastage. The thought was to take up issues within the industry and further narrowing it down, to issues within our own agency. The communication shows ads being made from wasted food, urging for ideas to put an end to food wastage.


The ads have been completely made by the food wasted in leading advertising agencies where there is a huge kitchen space. FCB Interface collected all the food waste and then designed posters on a life size canvas. The production house McTolan Films collaborated with FCB to execute these posters.


Lending perspective, Robby Mathew, CCO, FCB Interface said: “The idea was simple – make a ‘food-wastage’ poster using the food wasted by advertising people, every day. The difficult part was rummaging through the waste bins of all the leading advertising agencies, carting away the food in mini trucks, then creating the 14 feet by 19 feet layouts with putrefying food, hanging from a crane to shoot the artwork, all the while shooing away the crows and dogs that were hell bent on eating the poster!”


Speaking about the campaign, Rohit Ohri, Group Chairman & CEO, FCB India and Chairman, Young Lotus Selection Team at AAAI added: “This piece of work was not just a call for entries it was a call for behaviour change. The ‘personalisation’ of our communication helped shatter the ‘we don’t waste food’ illusion. Making the need to address this issue urgent and immediate.”
