The Drum has released their much-anticipated World Creative Rankings - a definitive guide to advertising’s most-awarded agencies, brands, campaigns and people - and we’re proud to share Wunderman Thompson has ranked #12 in their ranking of the Most Awarded Agency Networks of 2022!

Congratulations to our holding company, WPP, who has been named the #1 Agency Group for the second consecutive year.

The rankings are compiled by exhaustively analysing the performance of thousands of pieces of creative work across 19 major industry awards programs throughout 2022. This time around, that meant The Drum’s researchers pored over 2,438 campaigns from 1,698 clients working with 1,233 agencies composed of 522 chief creative officers, 749 executive creative directors, 2,270 creative directors, 1,543 copywriters and 1,820 art directors.

Watch this space over the next week as The Drum continues to reveal more of the top people in the industry!

Top Work

The star of the show was ‘Degree Inclusive’, the world’s first inclusive deodorant for Unilever’s Degree, which made it to the Top 10 of The Drum’s list of the 100 Most-Awarded Ads of the past year! The work, which came in at #9 – the highest-ranking campaign across all WPP agencies – saw Wunderman Thompson Buenos Aires collaborate with the disability community and an inclusive team of design experts including occupational therapists, engineers, consultants, and people living with disabilities across the globe, to create an innovative deodorant designed for the future, inspiring change across the industry.
