The World Creative Rankings, in partnership with Twitch, is the definitive guide to advertising’s most creative brands, agencies and people. Yesterday we revealed the 200 most awarded ad campaigns of 2021. Here, we continue our two-week series of dives into this year’s data by compiling a list of the 200 best creative agencies in the world.

Publicis Italy’s ‘Francesca’ campaign for Diesel earned it a high billing in the World Creative Rankings this year / Publicis Italy

The top 200 creative agencies list is compiled by analyzing the combined results of 21 of the industry’s biggest global awards shows. This year that meant our researchers pored over some 2,472 campaigns from 1,657 clients working with 1,220 agencies around the world. You can the full methodology in our World Creative Rankings launch article.

Over the next two weeks, our countdowns will continue as we also reveal which brands and creatives performed best across 2021’s awards shows. Members of The Drum Plus will have complete instant access to all of our lists from the moment they go live.

Look out for more on the top campaigns, including interviews with the creative minds behind the work, on thedrum.com in the coming weeks.
