MullenLowe London Creates Campaign for Winston Fletcher Fiction Prize
Ahead of the upcoming Winston Fletcher Fiction Prize, MullenLowe London has created a striking out of home campaign to raise awareness of the prize and invite the next great fiction writers from the advertising industry to submit their works of fiction for a cash prize.
The campaign gives alternative, satirical titles to some of the world’s greatest novels, with the tagline “Great stories aren’t told in headlines.” The rewritten titles include “Communist Pigs. Literally Communist Pigs” in place of Orwell’s Animal Farm, and “Dudes Cross World to Throw Ring in Volcano” for Tolkien’s “The Lord of the Rings.”
The Winston Fletcher Fiction Prize was created in memory of one of advertising’s greats, the late Winston Fletcher (1937 – 2012), who was also a prolific writer. Its purpose is to encourage and recognize great writing among the advertising and marketing community. The winner will receive a cash prize of £2,000 awarded by a jury chaired by author, philanthropist and founder of Waterstones, Sir Tim Waterstone.
Entries are open until March 17th and applicants are invited to submit their entries to http://www.thewinstonfletcherprize.co.uk/. The winner will be announced in May.
