The advertising awards season is in full swing now, with the ADC Awards in the books and its sister, the One Show, beginning to announce its 2019 winners. Half of the One Show honorees were announced at an awards show in New York City tonight, and the rest will be revealed Friday evening—followed quickly by Britain’s D&AD Awards and the Cannes Lions in June.
Four agencies that emerged tonight as particularly strong contenders were adam&eveDDB of London, Droga5, McCann New York and Wieden + Kennedy Portland (whose Colin Kaepernick work for Nike was awarded the top prize in the “Cultural Driver” category).
Adam&eveDDB was the top gold pencil winner of the evening, scooping up eight for the agency’s work on the Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM).
