 Gunn Report 2014: USA retains top slot of most awarded country

The Gunn Report, the global index for creative excellence in advertising, has released its 2014 report. The report encapsulates the overall performance of the world of advertising last year based on the results of 45 global, regional and national creative award contests.

According to the 2013 report, India had ranked ninth, while USA was adjudged as the most awarded country. Five Indian agencies had featured in the report -- McCann Worldgroup (Mumbai), Taproot India (Mumbai), JWT (Mumbai) and Leo Burnett (Mumbai and New Delhi), Ogilvy & Mather (Mumbai). However, no agency has made it to the report this year.

“Creativity can be measured by awards. We have analysed the results of the most important creative award shows around the world to bring insight, commentaries and rankings – valuable data for the ever-evolving advertising industry to achieve greater heights,” said Donald Gunn, Founder of The Gunn Report.

The Gunn Report 2014 guest editor is Malcolm Poynton, newly appointed Global Chief Creative Officer of Cheil Worldwide. Poynton has contributed his personal commentary on the report and awards tables. Besides, he has been involved in the selection for The Showreel of the Year. “The Gunn Report brings all the chaos and confusion of the seemingly endless award show calendar into sharp focus to give us the bigger picture of what’s hot and who’s behind it. Here you will find the best ideas made for clients that know the worth of a well-executed creative idea,” he said.

The ranking tables and accompanying commentaries are available at www.gunnreport.com. The winning work, as well as the 100 commercials appearing on the Showreel of The Year will follow shortly. The Gunn Report Book and Showreel of the Year 2014 DVD will be available in mid-March and will include the results of The Gunn Report for Media 2014.
