The Drum’s World Creative Rankings – an original, industry-spanning effort by our researchers to chart creative performance across the advertising world – track how many awards a campaign picks up for its client, agency and creative team, providing an objective measure of critical success.

Using that data, we’ve compiled a list of the most-awarded creative directors in the business.
