WARC Rankings 2021 released! Celebrating excellence in creativity, media & effectiveness

WARC Rankings 2021 are released - the most awarded campaigns and companies for creativity, effectiveness and media excellence in the world

The ultimate global independent benchmark for marketing, the WARC Rankings 2021 are a compilation of 2020’s most important industry awards

The WARC Creative 100, Effective 100 and Media 100, a suite of global rankings and the ultimate independent gold standard for marketing communications, are now released featuring the most awarded campaigns, agencies and brands in the world for 2020.

Compiled by WARC, the international marketing intelligence company, these annual league tables are produced by combining the winners’ lists from the industry's most important global and regional awards shows - as determined by the WARC Rankings Advisory Board and a worldwide industry survey - and by applying a rigorous proprietary three-step methodology.

Following the disruption to the awards industry caused by COVID-19 with many shows paused in 2020 and resuming in 2021 to judge two-years of work, the release of the full WARC Rankings 2021 were postponed from Q1 until now. The WARC Rankings 2022 (work tracked during 2021) will be released in Q1 next year.

Amy Rodgers, Managing Editor, Research & Rankings, WARC, said: “The results of the WARC Rankings 2021 bring together the most awarded campaigns and companies of 2020 and are a fantastic showcase of a combination of the best work the industry produced pre-pandemic as well as exceptional work notable for its response to the volatility caused by Covid-19. Not only do these Rankings provide inspiration, but they bring recognition to outstanding campaigns and the talent of our industry.”

Mark Read, CEO, WPP, said: “If our role is to make the best work, connect brands seamlessly with audiences and produce outstanding results for our clients, then there’s no better endorsement than to top the WARC 100 rankings for creative, media and effectiveness. It’s a wonderful tribute to our fantastic people, agencies and clients, and my thanks goes to them all.”

Liz Taylor, Global Chief Creative Officer, Ogilvy, said: “Topping the WARC Creative 100 speaks to the borderless creativity that unites Ogilvy’s global creative network, and what’s possible when creative thinking stretches across departments, geographies, and cultures to become a shared mission. What makes us most proud of this achievement is that it recognizes work delivered during a year where creativity helped us deliver through unimaginable circumstances. Our sincerest thanks to every person who works at Ogilvy for their passion and ingenuity, and to our brave clients for their partnership, trust, and collaboration.”

Adam Gerhart, Global CEO, Mindshare, said: “We are thrilled Mindshare has been named the number one media network in the world and Mindshare Shanghai the number one media agency office in the WARC Media 100. Our belief in driving Good Growth for our clients is brought to life through the creativity of our teams across the world, finding new and innovative ways to connect with consumers to create enduring and sustainable growth for our clients whilst also ensuring that growth benefits society and the planet.
