WWF Earth Hour Candles

WWF Philippines and Leo Burnett Manila have won recognition for their Earth Hour 2013 print and poster advertising campaign. The simple act of switching off and lighting a candle on Earth Hour has a clear impact on the environment. These posters had actual beeswax candles painstakingly melted onto them to simulate an iceberg, a tree and coral as life sanctuaries. The Iceberg ad (Polar Bear) has won Gold for Print at the 2014 Clio Awards.
