Emakina.CH wins the GRAND Award for Terre des hommes campaign

Author: Célia Lepine

Emakina.CH was awarded the GRAND Prix Romand de la Création in the Web category for the Terre des hommes website.


The GRAND ceremony took place on Thursday, November 6 at Lausanne’s popular D!Club. The atmosphere was both happy and exciting, continuing late into the evening.

In September 2014, with the support of Emakina.CH, Terre des hommes, the largest non-governmental organization (NGO) for children’s aid in Switzerland, launched an ambitious campaign on child labour in mining in Burkina Faso. The campaign highlights the exploitation of child labour, aimed at creating awareness, recruiting new sponsors and increasing donations.

Advanced technological solutions

Emakina.CH employed advanced technological solutions, using display campaigns such as re-targeting.


The website is mainly created in motion design, building around an interactive animation. It uses the latest and most efficient technologies on the Web, such as HTML 5, CSS3 and JavaScript.

The creative team of Emakina produced several animated sequences from pictures to create a unique user experience, with picture streaming to further enhance emotion. The campaign will run until November, 14 2014. You still have time to share and make a donation.
