Galaxy British Book Awards - The results
Galaxy's TV campaign kicks off - see ad.
THE BOOK TRADE is to see the first ever national, multi-channel, generic TV campaign for books as a result of Galaxy's headline sponsorship of the British Book Awards and its aim of extending its relationship with books and reading. The television campaign launched on Sunday, 18 March, with over 60 slots booked on peak time television. The advert, which features a scene recreated from The Great Gatsby,will be seen by a predicted 34 million adults at least once. Channels booked include ITV1, ITV2, ITV3, Channel 5, E4, Sky 1 and Living, while the programmes it will be broadcast between range from Emmerdale to Sex and the City. Another advert will be broadcast after the awards, encouraging viewers to read the winning books. Galaxy is spending £1.4m on the media campaign, which also includes press and online adverts.
