Founded in 2000, Australia for UNHCR unites caring Australians – individuals, community groups, and businesses – to support refugees and people displaced from their homes, families, and countries due to conflict and persecution. The charity advocates and fundraises for refugee protection, emergency aid, and long-term solutions, helping UNHCR support millions of displaced people each year.

Whether it’s raising awareness on emergency refugee crises or keeping donors up-to-date with fundraising initiatives, Australia for UNHCR produces a lot of marketing materials to help raise funds and support refugees and displaced people.

Photos and stories from on-the-ground reporting are fundamental to the production of fundraising campaigns, impact reports, and marketing initiatives.

When on mission, we take a lot of professional photos which are then fed back into advertising, appeals, campaigns, and reports - centralizing these marketing materials in one collaborative space was critical

The need for DAM

With so many stakeholders—both internal and external—involved in the production and promotion of marketing materials, it was essential for the DAM solution to fulfill certain requirements:

  • User-friendly, not overly technical: They didn’t want to spend hours training every new stakeholder before they could use the platform.

  • Fostered self-sufficiency: As a global operation, they wanted to ensure those in the organization could access their content library and find what they need, when they need it.

  • Centralized old and new assets: Aiming for simplicity and convenience, they wanted a DAM platform that could function as the 'single source of truth' for both new assets and archival materials.

  • A DAM partner, not just a provider: Australia for UNHCR has unique needs, and they wanted a DAM supplier that could understand their specific use case and foster an ongoing relationship, long after implementation.

Archival space for better visibility

Collaboration and communication with the UNHCR headquarters in Switzerland is inevitably important. Now, Australia for UNHCR can use Bynder as their central archive for all campaign assets, ensuring a clear overview of previous activities.

Bynder allowed us to be much more collaborative - we could create shareable file collections for specific fundraising campaigns that included pre-approved images that ensured campaign consistency and increased efficiency when publishing.
