Mobile services provider Smart Communications Inc. (Smart) and its value brand TNT have bagged four prestigious awards for their innovative and creative initiatives at the 2024 Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards®.

Open to all organizations in the 29 markets of the region, the Asia-Pacific Stevie® Awards has been recognizing international businesses for their innovation in various categories since its launch in 2002.

TNT bagged a Gold Award for Innovation in Cause-related Videos for its viral SIM Registration campaign, which scored millions of online engagements because of its creative and humorous videos meant to encourage the public to register their SIM.

TNT also snagged a Gold Award for Innovation in Content Marketing/ Branded Editorial for its groundbreaking TNT Petmaloop Challenge, which set the Guinness World Record for the World’s Longest Travel Livestream. Under the campaign, the brand gathered local content creators to feature highlights of their hometowns that give them ‘saya’ or joy using the widely popular video-sharing app TikTok.

On the other hand, the value brand earned a Silver Award for Innovation in Cross-Media Marketing for its FREE TikTok For All campaign, which enabled subscribers to enjoy free access to the widely popular video-sharing app when they register to select TNT promos.

Smart also took home a Bronze Award for Innovative Achievement for the launch of the Smart Prepaid eSIM, the first prepaid eSIM in the Philippines, which brings the future of mobile communications to the fingertips of more Filipinos.
