Challenge

JCPenney wanted to generate mass awareness and affinity for their 2019 Prom Line.

What we did

  • We teamed up the cast of Light as a Feather to give writers the chance to win one lucky #DreamPromposal.  
  • In 500 words or less, we challenged our community to share a story about their dream prom, including their dream prom outfit. 
  • We pushed out a high impact video featuring Light as a Feather cast members between chapters of our most relevant stories, becoming the first-ever writing contest leveraging talent from Wattpad’s own IP! 
  • 7 of Wattpad’s top influencers were called upon to create Prom-themed bonus chapters in some of Wattpad’s most beloved stories.

Results

  • The campaign drove massive engagement, generating 532 submissions of one-of-a-kind Promposals featuring characters taking inspiration from JCPenney’s Prom Line!
  • Our community was thrilled with the campaign, leaving 11,000+ amazing comments and votes, and reading the contest story and influencer chapters 185,363 times.
