McCann New York performed well in the Rankings this year, buoyed by its accessibility work for Microsoft

Each year, The Drum’s research team analyzes the data from all of the advertising industry's major awards schemes to find out which companies created the most award-winning work in the previous calendar year. This time round, that meant examining almost 2,000 campaigns from almost 1,000 agencies.

This years’s league table leader is McCann New York, which retain its top dog status from last year. The strong performance of work by 72andSunny LA for its client Tinder, and David Miami for Burger King, ensured those agencies’ ascendance into the top 10. You can see the top 100 US agencies for award wins below, and how they fared in the top 100 worldwide table here.
