Prompted awareness Respondents are read a description of each advertisement. of Northern Territory advertising was strong for most advertisements (refer to Figure 2). Although the ‘Share Our Story’ campaign results were lower than the previous ‘It’ll never, never leave you’ campaign, these results actually show a positive response to the campaign in the context of a lower media weight than for previous campaigns.
