The One Show

The One Show is the world's most prestigious award show in advertising, design and digital marketing. For over 40 years, the Gold Pencil has been regarded as one of the top prizes in the creative industry. The One Show has had a rich legacy of honoring some of the most groundbreaking ideas, created by some of the most remarkable minds in creativity.

Agency of the Year is awarded to the Agency that garners the most points overall for winning entries (Pencils, Merits, Special Awards), allocated per the points chart.

Points are only awarded to agencies credited as Primary/Secondary. If several agencies are listed under Primary/Secondary, the points are DIVIDED among them.


For 2021, the rankings were determined based on the point values listed on this chart:
