The 2015 Awards Report: See the World's Most Creative Agencies, Campaigns and Clients

Published on .

We present the winners of our 2015 Awards Report, highlighting the most creatively celebrated companies and personalities of the year.

As you'll see in our roundup below, Leo Burnett had a remarkable year. Propelled largely by the stellar run of Always' "Like a Girl" throughout the awards circuit, the company claimed most of the top prizes across this year's major categories. It was a huge year for women, too -- they claimed the #1 seat in all of the most awarded people rankings, from CCO to director.

The annual report tallies the results from the nine most-respected industry awards shows: Art Directors Club, Association of Independent Commercial Producers, the Andy Awards, the Cannes International Festival of Creativity, the Clios, D&AD, The One Show, the Webby Awards and the Festival of Media.

Each award won is assigned a point value according to the weight and preciousness of the honor. Those point totals then determine the most-awarded companies, campaigns and people, across a number of categories.

See the full lists and winning work here, including the 25 most-celebrated advertisers, as well as the top ten lists of the most-awarded agencies, campaigns, creative directors, networks, directors, production companies and more.
