"Once again The Gunn Report for Media has combined winners' lists from the world's most important award contests to establish the only global 'league tables' for the communications industry," said Isabelle Musnik, editor of The Gunn Report for Media. “In today’s increasingly competitive business environment, a growing number of advertisers are waking up to the importance of finding innovative, original ways of reaching customers, who are more and more unpredictable and changing all the time. Consumers don’t want any more to be told what to do. Not only do they want to participate, share and collaborate as never before. But they also want to control and dictate when, where and how they are communicated to. Media creativity is therefore an effective universal tool for brands for talking to consumers, meeting their objectives and standing out in a crowded field of competitors."
