The Agency of the Year Award is always the final accolade handed out at the Campaign Brief WA Awards. As anyone who has attended the Oasis Ball/Campaign Brief Awards can tell you, this is a much sought after award. There are seven agencies shortlisted this year.
The Agency of the Year award was Campaign Brief’s very first award.
First handed out in 1987, the award has been won the past 4 years in a row by The Brand Agency. Can they make it five in a row?
It takes a special performance to win this award and this year it will be awarded for the 34th time to a very deserving winner. Some great agencies have won this award. The very first winner was Johnson Bowley & Blakeley (in 1987). The Brand Agency has won this award 10 times. Marketforce has been successful 8 times. 303 (now 303 MullenLowe) has won 7 times. Meerkats has picked it up 3 times. And in the early years of the award JMA Ogilvy & Mather won twice. John Davis Advertising and Vinten Browning have taken on the larger agencies and won once each.
The seven agencies in contention for the Campaign Brief WA Agency of the Year award are:
