The rankings are compiled based on the winners of 87 effectiveness and strategy awards from around the world. Unilever was named No. 1 Advertiser of the Year, with two of their campaigns (both created by Lowe Lintas) making it to the top 5.

Lowe Lintas India accumulated 212.9 points while AMV BBDO UK took the second spot at 191 points and Colenso BBDO NZ that collected 147.6 points to finish third. Recent successes of Lowe Lintas on global platforms include Ad Age International Agency of the Year, the American Jay Chiat Awards and WARC Asia, all of which were firsts for India.

Lowe & Partners, Worldwide saw significant representation in the WARC 100 listing. Notable ones being - Lowe & Partners ranked #4 amongst the top Agency Networks in the world; and two other agencies from the Lowe network, Lowe SSP3 and Lowe Roche featured in top 25 agencies list. Furthermore, 5 of the campaigns created by the network featured in the WARC 100 Best Marketing Campaigns.

Campaigns created by Lowe Lintas India took two of the top 5 spots on WARC100 as the World’s Best Campaigns.
