2016 Sponsorship Opportunities for the Unreal Campaign
Since its launch in May 2012, the Unreal Campaign has reached more than 4,500+ high school students in the United States. The Unreal Campaign aims to teach young people about the value of trademarks and the importance of buying genuine products. Unreal sponsors help support Unreal’s awareness activities, such as development of digital content, video blogs, targeting of information to teens and organization of student engagement session events to maximize outreach. In addition, Unreal sponsors will be recognized by IP-intensive industries, government and the academic community for their commitment to the education of young purchasers in intellectual property matters and IP rights.
Sponsors of the Unreal Campaign provide important support to the campaign’s consumer awareness activities.
These include the creation of digital content and video blogs, and the organization of in-person student engagement
events. In return, Unreal Campaign sponsors receive benefits
