PHD India won a Gold for the Hindustan Unilever  campaign in the Best Use of Mobile Media category.

‘Rin Career Academy’ is a collaboration between PHD India and Hindustan Unilever. Rin, a dominant detergent brand in some regions of India, created a mobile “career academy” to improve the career prospects of rural Indian women leading to better brand affinity. The campaign converted an entire curriculum for English language training into snackable content customised for mobile which rural women can learn from and also get evaluated by. More than   200,000 people registered for the courses, with 70% accessing the course modules, compared to its target of 50%. The campaign helped rural women in various pockets of India take their first step towards self-sufficiency and true empowerment by making them career ready courtesy Rin Career Ready Academy.
