The Big Bang Fair Team Pick Up Two PRCA Awards

The Big Bang Team beat off stiff competition from a host of incredible projects to pick up both the Consumer Award – Low Budget and Purpose Award for its ‘Swimming In It’ campaign for The Big Bang Fair at the PRCA Awards last week. The campaign which caused a splash in March 2019 saw two of the most promising British synchronised swimmers perform their World Championship routine in a pool full of plastic and made huge waves across the globe in press and on social. To say we were delighted to pick up two gongs for it, is a bit of an understatement – our heads the next day probably told it best!

Here’s a link to read all about the campaign: http://www.thisiscow.com/work/swimming-in-it/.

British Synchronised swimmers Kate Shortman and Isabelle Thorpe attempt to recreate their World Championship routine in a pool filled with plastic – a challenged posed by The Big Bang Fair to help highlight how the eight million tonnes of plastic dumped in the world’s oceans every year affects marine life. This year’s Fair and Competition has seen a 14% increase in projects linked to plastic pollution, with youngsters inspired to use science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) to find alternative solutions and change the world. Their projects will be on display at the NEC in Birmingham with The Fair kicking off this week . The Big Bang Fair is the largest celebration of STEM for young people in the UK.
