SnapChat geofilters for the selfie Prime Minister and tech President’s State Dinner· March 9, 2016
When Prime Minister Justin Trudeau lands in Washington DC today, all of his pre-planned visit locations will be selfie-ready with event-specific SnapChat geofilters.
We decided to have some fun from a distance for the State Dinner, so we set up SnapChat Geofilters at the White House, as well as other key locations where the Prime Minister will be visiting while he’s in Washington DC for the official State Visit.
It’s a new era in Canada with our government being run by the selfie Prime Minister and he’s active on many different social media platforms – along with many members of his Cabinet. Digital capabilities are always changing, and this is a perfect opportunity to showcase what new online tools can do.
Anyone who opens SnapChat in the geofilter locations will have the opportunity to send a snap with graphics branded for the official state visit. The Prime Minister, President and invited guests will have the opportunity to selfie from the White House with branded graphics of the State Dinner. We have our fingers crossed for a PM and @WhiteHouse snap tomorrow night!
