SecurityPoint Media, with American Advertising Federation (AAF), Launches National Ad Campaign against Distracted Driving on June 3 Using a Unique Alternative Media Platform – Airport Security Bins

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Beginning tomorrow, Friday, June 3, air travelers across the country will be reminded of the dangers of distracted driving through a new and uniquely placed national ad campaign launched by SecurityPoint Media, the leader in airport passenger security checkpoint advertising, its partner, American Advertising Federation (AAF) and sponsored by Zappos.com. The national ad campaign, featuring winning creative from the 2nd annual “Champion a Cause” Creative Challenge, was unveiled today at ADMERICA! 2011, AAF’s national conference in San Diego.

“Distracted driving was a perfect fit this year because our national media network reaches mobile consumers in one of the few places they’re guaranteed to be without a smartphone – the airport security checkpoint.”

Zappos.com, a leading destination in online apparel and footwear sales, is the exclusive sponsor of the “Champion a Cause” Creative Challenge for the second consecutive year. The company, which offers a range of mobile apps for the Zappos consumer, recognizes distracted driving as a serious problem.

“Distracted driving is such a huge problem that is so easy to fix,” said Aaron Magness, Senior Director of Brand Marketing and Business Development for Zappos.com. “We hope this campaign helps raise awareness and save lives.”

“When we conceptualized `Champion a Cause’ two years ago, our goal was simple: Bring a clear voice to an important cause and speak to the hard-to-reach demographic of air travelers and frequent fliers – influentials that are early adopters and trendsetters,” said Joseph Ambrefe, CEO, SecurityPoint Media. “Distracted driving was a perfect fit this year because our national media network reaches mobile consumers in one of the few places they’re guaranteed to be without a smartphone – the airport security checkpoint.”

The 2011 “Champion a Cause” Creative Challenge invited the nation’s top advertising, marketing and media experts to design an airport security bin advertisement targeting adults who text and drive. The winning creative was submitted by bfw Advertising agency’s Paul Amelchenko, Juan Agosto and Pete Carrara. The professional judging panel included: Steve Pacheco, Director of Advertising, FedEx; Susan Credle, Chief Creative Officer, Leo Burnett; Jonathan Perelman, Industry Relations Manager, Google; and Aaron Magness, Senior Director, Brand Marketing and Business Development, Zappos.com.
