Canadian shop Zulu Alpha Kilo was named Small Agency of the Year at the 2016 Ad Age Small Agency Awards, which salute outstanding independent shops with 150 or fewer employees.
The Small Agency Awards were launched in 2009 by Ad Age, the leading global source of news, intelligence, and conversation for the marketing and media community, to ensure that the innovative campaigns and brand ideas generated by smaller companies receive the recognition they deserve. This year's award ceremony was held in Miami Beach, attended by more than 300 industry executives who attended the Small Agency Conference. The complete list of winning agencies can be found here.
"This contest proves without a doubt that amazing work does not only come from large agencies, and that the caliber of creative from small shops is rising every year," said Ad Age Editor Ken Wheaton. "We had a flood of really excellent entries from many corners of the world and the judging was extremely difficult."
Other winners include Humanaut which won Integrated Campaign of the Year for its "Save the Bros" effort for dairy-based drink Organic Fuel. Mexico City-based Anonimo took home International Agency of the Year with innovative campaigns for Sprite and a local language school.
