Aussie agencies rank high in global Gold Lion and Effies study

15 January 2015

McCann Melbourne’s "Dumb Ways to Die" campaign for Metro Trains and Ogilvy & Mather Sydney’s "Share A Coke" have landed in the top 12 list of The Gunn Report’s 'Cases for Creativity 2014'.

The study identifies campaigns from across the globe that have won both a Cannes Gold Lion for creativity and a 2014 Gold Effie for effectiveness, as well as the impact they have made by the number of times they have been shared across the web.

Representing the high watermark of advertising achievement, the 12 campaigns accomplished great feats in 2014. Traditional TVCs sit alongside PR stunts, technology experiments, and simple, old-fashioned consumer promotions.

Created by BBDO, BETC, Leo Burnett, Mayo Publicidad, McCann, Ogilvy & Mather, Saatchi & Saatchi and TBWA, the 12 campaigns hail from Argentina, Australia (x2), Brazil (x2), France, New Zealand (x2), Peru (x2), UAE and USA.

1. "A Boy And His Atom" for IBM by Ogilvy & Mather, USA
2. "Baby&Me" for Evian by BETC Paris, France
3. "Bentley Burial" for Brazilian Association of Organ Transplants by Leo Burnett Tailor Made, Brazil
