Ogilvy Group Thailand takes out APAC Agency of the Year title at Campaign Brief’s The Work 2020: Petch & Partners Philippines ranks #2 with Tencent China #3 and Cheil Hong Kong #4

For the second year in a row Ogilvy Group Thailand has out performed all other agencies in the Asia-Pacific region with the most Acceptances in Campaign Brief’s THE WORK 2020. Petch & Partners Philippines, Tencent China, Cheil Hong Kong, GIGIL Philippines, The Nine Shanghai, DDB Group New Zealand, Leo Burnett Australia, Ogilvy Australia, GREYnJ United Bangkok and The Monkeys Sydney fill this year’s Top 10.

 

Ogilvy Group Thailand has 32 entries accepted from the 73 entries they submitted to THE WORK 2020. Their performance sees them named THE WORK 2020 Agency of the Year. It’s an amazing achievement for the Thai creative powerhouse that has consistently been at the top of the table in THE WORK and the Campaign Brief Asia Creatives Rankings for over a decade.

Over the past four years Ogilvy Group Thailand has ranked #1 agency in the region twice (2020 and 2019), ranking #14 in 2018 and #2 overall in 2017.

Acceptances included work on a wide variety of clients including Coca-Cola, ME by TMB, Apollo Tyres, Babi Mild, Doi Kham, DKSH (Lego), Freeland Foundation and Lineman.

This year, THE WORK 2020 received 2,611 entries, which is only slightly down on last year’s record level of 2,788 entries, and up on 2018’s total of 2,456 entries. It’s a great result given the Covid-19 impacted economic times and with the cancellation of most international and regional awards shows in 2020.

The top country for entries to Campaign Brief’s THE WORK this year was Australia with 567 entries. THE WORK also received 326 entries from Thailand, 307 entries from Taiwan, 261 from The Philippines, 256 from China and 210 from New Zealand.

The top performing countries for acceptances were Australia with 276 Acceptances. Thailand was the next best performing country with 104, followed by Philippines with 75 and Taiwan with 69. China, Malaysia and New Zealand have 59 acceptances each.

This is the 18th year of THE WORK. THE WORK is recognised as a true record of creativity for the entire region and features the very best advertising of the year from Asia, Australia and New Zealand. There are no wasted entry fees with THE WORK – entry is free, with a fee charged only on Accepted work.

Acceptances to THE WORK 2020 count in the Campaign Brief Asia Creative Rankings – released September 1st.
