The jury said:

"The thoroughness of matching "old and new" and a very rigorous way to deal with very usual "factors."”

This paper demonstrates inspiration in the following ways:

    • inspiring innovation in the measurement of ‘actual’ audience reaction to content
    • new insights to inspire and inform the creation of visual content and the scheduling of advertising messages
    • an inspiring new way to demonstrate the value of a channel brand to its clients
    • inspiration to drive future development of this research methodology

The paper demonstrates the value of measuring actual versus claimed behaviour, and also demonstrates the effectiveness of using a new and innovative research tool to gain greater depth and understanding of actual audience behaviour.
