This year, the Internetics communication campaign launches a call to action for brands & advertising agencies under the message Do Good Through Digital. Internetics believes in the power of brands to get involved in a sustainable way and generate real impact in communities regarding various social issues, to use their digital marketing platforms & technologies in order to bring a positive contribution to society.
To better illustrate this message, Internetics uses in its campaign visuals generated through artificial intelligence on the MidJourney platform, with a focus on 3 big themes – environment, health and education:

We dreamed about a better version of Romania. And then we wrote and sent our dreams to MidJourney artificial intelligence which painted them in images. Like this, through digital our aspirations are closer to becoming reality.

The Internetics 2022 Awarding Gala will focus on the Do Good Through Digital theme and will take place on November 17th – all details will be announced soon.
