The only real good news about skin cancer is that with a little effort, cases of the disease's occurrence can be minimized. The aim of this SunSmart Australia campaign is to promote the practice of such simple preventative measures so that fewer people will be affected by the dreadful illness.

Gratuity is a very effective method for establishing consumers' attention, so the Cancer Council of Western Australia is offering free dollops of sunscreen. Dispensers of the protective epidermal lotion have been placed within billboards against the sides of bus stops so that people who are out and about can access a sample readily.

To send home a stronger message, the Cooch Creative advertising agency added the line "cutting your sun exposure is easier than cutting out a skin cancer." Cleverly, the SunSmart Australia campaign places the sun cream within the poster's excision site. Stats for Sunscreen-Dispensing Signage Trending: Older & Average
