UNITED KINGDOM — Sainsbury’s, a UK-based supermarket chain, has launched a digital out-of-home campaign that combines live text and photos to champion the UK’s Paralympic Team currently competing in Rio. The nationwide campaign features photographs of individual athletes when they were young children, followed by current day shots as Paralympic champions excelling in their sport.

The campaign is designed to capture the buzz and excitement of Rio 2016 while highlighting Sainsbury’s continued support of Team ParalympicsGB and its Active Kids initiative. Live copy celebrates the achievements of the Paralympians by wishing luck to those competing that evening, as well as reacting with congratulatory messages to successful athletes to capture the atmosphere and momentum of each day’s events.

The campaign reaches Londoners during peak morning commuting times, between 7am and 9am, and  spans 700 screens across 6 independent media owners, across roadside, retail and city centre locations until the 19th September, 2016. The idea was conceived, planned and booked by PHD and Talon, produced by Grand Visual, and facilitated by OpenLoop.
