HRPR were asked to help support Canon Australia and Ogilvy PR with the launch of their collaboration with Channel Nine’s Lisa Wilkinson, and her black and white photographic exhibition entitled ‘Women of Influence’ in Melbourne as well as awareness for Lisa Wilkinson’s charity partner, Barnados Australia – highlighting their important work and raise money to help vunerable children.
HRPR executed a one-night media and VIP event, to help raise awareness and generate publicity for the exhibition. Work included curating a guest list approved by both Canon Australia and Lisa Wilkinson, photography and videography management throughout the event as well as local and national publicity.
The one-night event was held at Smart Artz Gallery in South Melbourne on Friday 28th October 2016, where the exhibition was also going to be publicly displayed for one week prior to the Sydney exhibition and charity auction.
