Creative Works: The best creative campaigns of 2017

Audi Clowns is one of The Drum's favorite ads of 2017

The Drum received plenty of creative submissions over the last year, enough to fill 52 weeks of Creative Works roundups in our three regions – EMEA, Americas and Asia. While many campaigns were worthy and deserving, a few stood out in each region as our favorites.

Take a look through the choices made by The Drum's Creative Works team and see what you think, then vote on which ones you feel are the best by clicking on the stars.

These campaigns range from the humorous to the amazing, the dramatic to serious social issues. For the rest of the best, visit our Ad of the Day page, and check back each week for our Creative Works roundups.

I am a reporter for The Drum covering a wide array of topics but always trying to tell the best stories possible. I am a former west coaster from California and Portland, Oregon, now living in Pennsylvania — with time spent in NYC each week.

I also play saxophone professionally.
