Gunn Report, the global index of creative excellence in advertising, released the results of the newly launched Gunn 100, a ranking of the top 100 creatively awarded advertising ideas of 2017- regardless of their communication discipline – and the companies behind them.
The rankings, which include the top creative agencies, agency networks, holding companies, brands, advertisers and countries, are compiled by analysing the results of more than 40 of the world’s most important international, regional and national creative awards shows.
Ranked the most creative campaign in the world is ‘Meet Graham’, created by Clemenger BBDO Melbourne for Australia’s Transport Accident Commission, depicting what a human would have to look like to withstand a low speed crash. In second place is McCann New York’s ‘Fearless Girl’, created in honour of International Women’s Day for asset management firm State Street Global Advisors.
Three themes have emerged from the world’s most creative campaigns:
- A year of ‘purpose’: purpose-driven marketing continues to dominate with brands (as opposed to charities or not-for-profit) using social or environmental causes in brand-building activity.
- Creativity meets tech: A number of high-ranking campaigns found innovative ways to use emerging technology.
- Emotion drives film-led work: A combination of emotional engagement and high production values was a recurring theme in film-led campaigns.
BBDO agencies dominate the league tables following an impressive performance around the world with four agencies listed in the top ten. Most notably AlmapBBDO São Paulo tops the most creative agencies leader-board for the fourth time in the 19 years of Gunn Report. BBDO New York is ranked second and Dentsu Tokyo third.
BBDO Worldwide heads the networks table, for an impressive twelfth consecutive year with 36 different offices contributing to their total. McCann Worldgroup are in second place and Ogilvy & Mather third.
