MediaCom has achieved the two biggest prizes at the 2017 M&M Global Awards, winning both the Global Agency Network of the Year title and the Agency of the Year award. In addition, the agency won eight Gold and five Highly Commended for its work on multinational campaigns.
The awards were picked up at a ceremony at the Natural History Museum in London where the agency’s work for Lucozade, Shell, Deutsche Telekom, Gucci, NBC Universal and Gillette was recognised as world class. Always, Gillette, Gucci and Shell also picked up five Highly Commended Awards. In addition Gillette’s ‘Bachelor of Shaving’ campaign was awarded Campaign of the Year.
MediaCom’s UK team was named as Agency of the Year because of its work on Lucozade, NBC Universal and Gucci.
The M&M Global Awards recognise and celebrate leading multi-market advertising campaigns, the most innovative and effective work, and the finest coordination of multi-local advertising strategies.
The success at the awards follows a strong performance at the shortlist stage where MediaCom was recognised as the best-performing media agency network with 31 shortlisted entries, including four entered directly by Shell, more than double its nearest competitor.
Over the past nine years, it has now been named Agency Network of the Year at the M&M Global Awards an unprecedented seven times, including in 2015 and 2016.
Earlier this year, the agency was also named Agency Network of the Year at the Festival of Media Global 2017. It is the current Agency Network of the Year at the Festival of Media LatAm 2016 and was Agency of the Year at the Festival of Media Asia 2017.
