Gideon Spanier, UK editor-in-chief at Campaign, said: "Campaign's global Agency of the Year Awards recognise and celebrate the best agencies – and the brilliant people working within them.
"The winners are chosen by a select group of marketers, the people in a position to hire agencies and authorise budgets.
"It is a real achievement to win one of these awards and this year they recognise industry-leading companies and executives working across four continents, from established names to a new breed of businesses and talent."
Now in their third year, the global awards are judged by a panel of global and regional chief marketing officers.
Winners of the media, creative and digital network categories in Campaign's regional Agency of the Year schemes in Asia-Pacific, the US and UK are automatically put through to the awards but other agencies and networks can enter, too.
