NikonNikon Music Festival 2016


For the 6th year running, Nikon wanted to organise the Nikon Music Festival to reach and engage passionate photo and music fans in partnership with Les Vieilles Charrues Festival. The focus this year was:

• Continue the Nikon Music Festival to legitimise the brand’s association with the world of music

• Reach a strategic target audience (18-35 years, socio-professional category +)

• Produce quality video and photo content in line with the brand positioning and expectations of its community

• Highlight products and associated promotions to stimulate purchase


I am a storyteller: invite selected reporters to tell a story through their photo/video experiences for Les Vieilles Charrues Festival. Like photojournalism, this project combines text and images and was the subject of an article in the Nikon Mag after the Festival.


Digital campaign

Recruit 4 reporters (3 photo reporters and 1 video reporter) to cover the Festival of Les Vieilles Charrues according to a specific theme.
