In a tender document seen by Marketing, the appointed contractor will be responsible for ensuring consistent branding across all the campaign assets, such as brochures, social media content and posters, to name a few.

The key objective of the Better Internet Campaign is to raise awareness and generate discussions about safe and responsible online behaviour by stimulating high recall of and high engagement rates for the campaign message. The campaign should take a comprehensive and integrated approach that encompasses storytelling, public education and engagement, and partnerships and collaborations with "like-minded" organisations and individuals.
