THE BRIEF

Make Paper Wings one of London’s most talked about events. 

How we approached it

Red Bull Paper Wings is an incredibly unique competition. 

With striking visuals and feats of sporting prowess mixed with aerodynamics, it’s not something Red Bull is known for. 

Our series of photo opportunities at the UK National Final was a surefire way to ensure we got the UK talking. 

Leaning on the human stories of the contestants we highlighted how some of the UK’s up-and–coming (paper) airplane throwing talent got involved in such a unique sport. 

We invited media and influencers to the UK and international final in Salzburg where the athletes competed against the rest of the world, and announced the incredible group of finalists.

Through W+P’s impressive network, they provided incredible opportunities to tell our story, creating those ‘wow’ moments that got people talking globally.

The results were incredible – they achieved vast earned media reach that set the media agenda. Ultimately, this provided me the ultimate success metric, linking the brand to a wide variety of new consumers.

“I've engaged many PR companies over the years, it's always a great sales presentation followed by an expensive ongoing retainer. W+P is delightfully and refreshingly different, it's as if the team are a part of ours.

I hope others don't find out just how good W+P is, we really want to keep them all to ourselves”
