Well, I like it. Good work.
What's it to it some french has done a campaign on the same subject but with different execution before?
Fiat shouldn't be allowed to promote their cars because Peugeot has already done so?

I've seen two campaigns from two different countries within 5 minutes, that's a good function of this site imo, you can compare two different ideas on the same subject. "Free Press" in this case. Nothing i say is about being allowed or not, i find this one very weak compared to the other. Plus, in an obstacle race a skilled runner jumps over all the obstacles, so i don't think this represents -in a satisfying manner- the restrictions that journalists face.

I think you are taking this too literally. Hence, you are making the argument that skilled runners jump OVER all those "obstacles" which means they overcome them, so journalists should too. Just think of this as a metaphor for an obstacle or restriction in general. Don't overanalyze it. I agree French campaign is more original.

This metaphor suits more for "a race of the writing skills" other than the "obstacles for the press" isn't it?

Molto bello e molto vero. Vale anche per la bella pubblicità, che in Italia ha sempre infiniti ostacoli. Bravi Dan e Izz, all'ADCI questo meritava un premio.

This is beautiful and true. It's the same for good avertising, full of obstacles in Italy.
