We’re All Fans for the Grammys

The 2010 Grammy Awards, to be broadcast on CBS on January 31, are being promoted in “We’re All Fans”, an interactive web site fostering the power of fans. The campaign, online at www.wereallfans.com, constantly updates portraits of Grammy nominated artists such as Lady Gaga using images and footage from real-time, fan-generated YouTube, Twitter, Flickr and Facebook postings. Fans power the engine of popularity, they are more active, involved and engaged than ever before, and with direct fan/artist interaction through social media, they have become intricately woven into the fabric of music and culture.

The Grammys promotional campaign is online at YouTube, MySpace, Twitter

Executive creative director for TBWA\Chiat\Day Los Angeles, Patrick O’Neill says the campaign celebrates the connection between fans and some of today’s most relevant artists.

“Fans have always been the driving force of music but with the rise of social media they are now more powerful, more connected and more influential than ever”, comments O’Neill. “We wanted to tap into what music fans are already doing: sharing, tweeting, singing about their favourite artists and we wanted to harness this enthusiasm and put fans at the centre of the idea for the GRAMMY Awards.”

The website also has built-in functionality for users to upload their own image and create a “We’re All Fans” portrait of themselves. Their image is then reconstructed using fan-generated content that references the artist or band of choice. New artists will be added onto the site in the build up to the GRAMMY Awards. The campaign is also supported by TV, print and out-of-home work that extends the user generated aesthetic across screens, magazine and billboards. Shown here are posters featuring Beyonce, Dave Matthews, Lady Gaga, Black Eyed Peas and Taylor Swift.

    I saw the Dave Matthews ad in Entertainment Weekly and found it so striking that I had to find out who was behind it-now I get the bonus of seeing all the other Fans’ artwork. Congratulations on doing such fine work and let’s hope the show is as strong as the ads.
