Kellogg and Cartoon Network Honored by PROMO Magazine with PRO Awards for Outstanding Partnership

Award-Winning Promotion Created by Draft Chicago Takes Top Accolades

Kellogg, in a partnership with Cartoon Network, was honored with a first and third place PRO Award for their "Toon Tour of Mysteries" promotion at the 15th annual PRO Awards Gala Ceremony and Dinner, presented by PROMO Magazine. The campaign received top honors in the best sponsorship or tie-in category, and third place in the best campaign generating brand volume category. The promotion, created by Draft Chicago, Kellogg's promotional marketing agency of record, aimed to increase cereal and morning foods sales, drive display at the retail level and deliver a meaningful, branded experience to the consumer. The campaign was promoted on more then 75 million Kellogg�s brand packages and featured five unique interactive DVD-ROMs featuring Cartoon Network characters.

�We have partnered with Kellogg�s for several consecutive years of high profile back-to-school promotions, always with the goal of raising the bar for creativity and consumer value,� said Phyllis Ehrlich, senior vice president of promotions marketing, Cartoon Network Sales & Marketing. �Kellogg�s truly believes in the collaborative process which is a key reason why they are so successful in their promotional efforts. They are a terrific partner and we�re thrilled they have been recognized for their outstanding achievement this year.�

Timed with the 2004 back-to-school season, the Kellogg �Toon Tour of Mysteries� promotion leveraged high-profile, kid-centric properties to deliver an interactive experience that entertained and challenged the consumers� problem-solving abilities, rewarding them for participating. A series of five unique interactive DVD-ROMs were found in more than 2.5 million cereal and morning foods packages. With Scooby Doo as the master of ceremonies, many of Cartoon Network�s top properties, including The Powerpuff Girls, Johnny Bravo and Dexter's Laboratory, were included on the 75+ million brand packages touting the promotion.

Fun-filled offers were spread across the entire Kellogg�s portfolio and communicated via key consumer touch points including packaging, POS, online, on-air and direct mail. The program exceeded sales and merchandising expectations and offered the consumer a memorable Kellogg�s experience.

The promotion proved successful across every consumer touch point, with sales exceeding expectations and incremental dollar sales increasing by 38%. In addition, incremental sales volume also exceeded expectations, up 52%, while retail orders for POS materials doubled in 2004 vs. 2003.
