SeenThis was chosen by the selection committee with the nomination presented by Mathilde Delhoume–Debreu, Global Brand Officer at LVMH : “What guided our choice for the winner of the category Media and Brand Awareness was first our customer – because we want them to experience inspiring but also non-intrusive advertising.

By minimizing data usage we also minimize our carbon footprint.”
