- Agency must be credited under one of these credit types:
Agency, Design Firm, Digital Agency, PR / Marketing
When multiple agencies* meet the above requirements on the same award win, the points for that win are equally divided among those agencies.
*Points are also equally divided with any listed Primary Agency credited under the Internal / In-House Agency credit type.
MULTIPLE AWARDS WITHIN A DISCIPLINE
If the same piece of work won multiple awards within a Discipline, the points for the one (1) highest award* in that discipline were counted.
*For work that received a Best of Discipline honor, the points for both the Gold win and Best of Discipline win were counted within that Discipline.
AWARDS IN MULTIPLE DISCIPLINES
If the same piece of work won awards across multiple Disciplines, the points for the highest award per discipline were counted.
