Lamar Advertising and Guthrie Green Launch Tulsa’s First-Ever Photo-Interactive Digital Billboard Campaign

New ‘Seen on the Green’ Campaign Combines Social Media and Digital Out-of-Home

Baton Rouge, LA – October 1, 2014 – Lamar Advertising Company (Nasdaq: LAMR) and Guthrie Green are bringing Tulsa’s first-ever photo-interactive digital billboard campaign to life. Tulsa residents who visit Guthrie Green, an urban park and entertainment space in the heart of Tulsa’s Brady Arts District, will have the chance to be seen on a digital billboard, thanks to a new campaign combining digital out-of-home and social media.

As part of an ongoing campaign, those who visit Guthrie Green can share their photos from the park on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter using the hashtag #GuthrieGreen. Select photos chosen by Guthrie Green will rotate on Lamar’s digital billboards in the downtown and midtown area. Integrating social media and digital out-of-home is part of a new advertising strategy that is reinventing outdoor and keeping customers engaged in new ways.

“The #GuthrieGreen campaign is Tulsa’s first-ever photo-interactive digital billboard campaign,” said Ian Gollahon, Account Executive at Lamar Advertising of Tulsa. “We took the interaction that was already taking place on Guthrie Green’s social media sites and extended it to thousands of commuters every day. It’s an entirely new thing in Tulsa and we’ve seen a huge response from it.”
