Gunn 100: What makes the top 10 campaigns list?

Award winning Indian ads fail to find a spot in the top 10. In the Asia-Pacific region, Clemenger and Colenso BBDO, Saatchi & Saatchi Sydney and BBH Singapore represent the region on Gunn Report's list of the 10 most-awarded campaigns.

Gunn 100: What makes the top 10 campaigns list?

Clemenger BBDO Melbourne's 'Meet Graham' tops the Gunn Report's list of the top 10 most-awarded campaigns of 2017, in Warc's Gunn 100 report, issued this morning.

Colenso BBDO Auckland ('Child replacement program'), Saatchi & Saatchi Sydney ('Landcruiser emergency network') and BBH Singapore ('Nike unlimited stadium') also appear on that list. Clemenger BBDO and Colenso BBDO also made the top 10 'best creative agencies' list, at seventh and 10th, respectively. 

Elsewhere:

  • BBDO comes out on top of the 'best creative agency network' ranking.
  • Nike is at the top of the 'best creative brands'.
  • Volkswagen leads the 'best creative advertisers' list, on which Samsung (7) is the only APAC-based brand.
  • Omnicom tops the 'best creative holding companies' list.
  • Australia (3), Japan (7) and Thailand (10) represent Asia-Pacific on the list of the 'most creative countries'.

The Gunn 100 rankings are based on more than 40 of the world's most important international, regional and national creative awards shows.
