London based media agency MindShare/ mOne and Danish based creative agency Framfab scooped the 'Best in Show' and first prize in the entertainment category at the first European Emmessennys Awards for their Nike Instant Messenger football game.

Nike called on the agencies to create a football game on MSN Messenger where users could contact a buddy for a chat and challenge them to a game of football. The high value content, execution and clever interactive element ensured deeper consumer experiences for over six million players in 11 markets.

Marc Bresseel, Regional Sales Director, MSN Europe, comments: "The judges felt that the campaign pushed the boundaries of creativity and used the online medium so effectively that the game has the potential to redefine the Instant Messenger category".

"This is an excellent example of digital marketing creating a social currency, a tangible element for the consumer to interact with and a feature that is uniquely enabled by the online medium".
