Ad Age announced the winners of the 11th annual Small Agency Awards live online this evening, following our three-day Small Agency Conference, which was held virtually for the first time due to the ongoing pandemic.
“The Ad Age Small Agency Awards recognize not just great creative work, but solid business results for clients,” said Judann Pollack, executive editor of Ad Age.
“And while these awards honor 2019, it is also worth noting that our winning shops continue to turn out exceptional and effective work, despite the limitations imposed by COVID and a rocky economy,” she added.
This year’s top prize, Small Agency of the Year, Gold, was awarded to Highdive, the Chicago-based shop behind Jeep’s Ad Meter-winning “Groundhog Day” Super Bowl commercial. With just 30 employees, Highdive has recently managed to raise its adland profile while tripling its revenue between 2018 and 2019.
