It is innovative not just in the citizen and media driven campaign itself, but in the creative ways the campaign then supports the winners to shift norms.

Based on firms' feedback, organisers created a user-friendly website for explaining subsidies, and sent over 30,000 emails that used behavioural messages to nonapplicant firms.
