Strong Economic Choices for Queensland, Bluegrass Consulting in partnership with C|T Group, Burson Marsteller, QCCN & PPR, Australia
"The ’Strong Choices’ campaign undoubtedly widened and deepened the critical relationships between government, its key stakeholders and the wider Queensland community around a fundamental, complex and strategic issue for the state - how best to address the growing levels of public debt.
While the Queensland Government campaign was seen as groundbreaking within Australia and Asia for its innovation and effectiveness in how it engaged the state’s 4.5 million residents around the high levels of public debt, it is the global recognition by the COMM PRIX Awards that truly places the campaign at the highest levels of achievement within the communication profession in Australia. It is a well deserved tribute to a visionary, courageous client and the support delivered by a skilled and focussed team of specialists in communication, research and strategy. "
