Gideon Spanier, UK editor-in-chief at Campaign, said: "Campaign's global Agency of the Year Awards recognise and celebrate the best agencies – and the brilliant people working within them.

"The winners are chosen by a select group of marketers, the people in a position to hire agencies and authorise budgets.

"It is a real achievement to win one of these awards and this year they recognise industry-leading companies and executives working across four continents, from established names to a new breed of businesses and talent."

Now in their third year, the global awards are judged by a panel of global and regional chief marketing officers.
