One of the best speeches in history began: "I am the greatest." The desire to be the best, or be surrounded by it, is within us all. To be defined as the greatest in the creative sphere in the past 50 years is a massive achievement.

At 50, D&AD is honouring the creative visionaries of the past five decades - the ad agency, production company, art director, copywriter, directors, brand, design studio and designer that have received the most D&AD Pencils in the organisation's history.

The awards amount to a tribute to the impact that was made by Collett Dickenson Pearce & Partners on UK advertising. Not only is the agency named as the most-awarded of all time, but two of its alumni, the great art director Neil Godfrey and the equally revered copywriter Tony Brignull, are also acknowledged.

The recognition moves to more contemporary times with Frank Budgen and Tony Kaye's joint greatest director award and Apple's selection as the greatest brand.
