Our 2021 Awards


Social Media Campaign

ZT Corporate

CEO COVID-19 Test Challenge Campaign

ZT Corporate is a Houston-based investment firm focused on healthcare, automotive, and various other industries. With the pandemic crippling the economy in 2020, ZT Corporate sought out safe and productive ways to stimulate businesses. As the Chairman and CEO of ZT Corporate, Taseer Badar pledged to provide free COVID-19 tests to all of his employees in an effort to responsibly reopen the economy. He nominated three other CEOs in what became known as the “CEO COVID Test Challenge,” asking them to do the same, which resulted in a viral movement. The Mayor of Houston, Sylvester Turner, also showed his support by joining in on the challenge.

Versa Creative launched a social media campaign surrounding this challenge, taking strategic efforts to target key audiences. Needless to say, the campaign was a tremendous success across Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
