Omnicom named most creative agency by Gunn Report

MUMBAI: Gunn Report for Media named Omnicom Media Group Agency OMD Worldwide as world's most creative media agency. This year, the perennial first ranked network was joined in the top three by sister Omnicom Media Group agency PHD Worldwide, which claimed the third place ranking.

The Gunn Report for Media is the industry standard for evaluating media creativity, ranking agencies according to their performance in the top industry awards shows around the world. Most importantly, it recognizes the vital role media agencies play in today's highly competitive and fragmented communications landscape. The rankings reflect a point system based on awards won in more than 50 annual award competitions worldwide.

In addition to OMD leading the list with 521 points, the top five slots were claimed by Starcom-Mediavest (Publicis) with 467 points; Omnicom Media Group's PHD (357 points); Mindshare (Group M) with 294 points; and UM (IPG) with 209 points.

With agencies claiming the first and third slots on the ranking, Omnicom Media Group is the only media holding group to have two agencies in the ranking's top five. With a combined 878 points earned by its OMD and PHD networks, Omnicom Media Group also earned the most combined points of any media holding group in the ranking, followed by GroupM, which earned a total of 738 points earned across its four agency networks.

For its ninth showing at the top of the list, OMD's top ranking reflects recognition earned in 2014 by agencies in every region across its network, with stand-out performers including OMD Singapore, OMD UK, OMD Colombia and OMD MENA, which was the most awarded media agency at the 2014 Effies.

PHD joins the Top Three for the first time, having won four Gold Media Lions in Cannes ? the most Golds won by any media agency in 2014. Among the standout performers are PHD UK and PHD India; as well as PHD Hong Kong, PHD New Zealand, PHD China, PHD Denmark and PHD Colombia. PHD was also recognized in the report for having two of the world's most awarded campaigns in 2014.

Omnicom Media Group CEO Daryl Simm said, ?Awards are a great testament to the innovation and creativity of our networks and our people. No source provides as comprehensive a measure of an organization's ability to deliver great work on a global level as the Gunn Report -- we're very proud of this recognition.?
