Jun 17, 2021

A strong performance by Dentsu Tokyo has led to it being named Asia Pacific's top-ranked agency in The One Club Global Creative Rankings 2021, combining results from The One Show 2021 and historic ADC 100th Annual Awards.

This benchmark creative ranking is determined by the cumulative point totals of eligible One Show Pencils, ADC Cubes and Merits won. 

Saatchi & Saatchi Australia Southbank had the highest-ranked senior creatives in the region, with Mike Spirkovski topping the CCO rankings and Simon Bagnasco taking the number one ECD spot.

“Based on results of two of the world’s largest and most prestigious global awards programs, The One Club Global Creative Rankings are the definitive measure for global creative excellence,” said Kevin Swanepoel, CEO, The One Club for Creativity.

The One Club Global Creative Rankings methodology

The ONE Global Creative Rankings provides a cumulative list of companies and individuals based on eligible points earned from their winning entries in both The One Show 2021 and ADC 100th Annual Awards.

The rankings are determined based on the following point values: Gold Pencil/Cube 15 points, Silver Pencil/Cube 7, Bronze Pencil/Cube 3, Merit 1, Fusion Pencil/Cube, SDG and Green Pencil 30 each, Penta Pencil 50, Best of Discipline 45 and Best of Show 90.  

If the same entry wins multiple awards within a discipline, the points for the one highest award in that discipline is counted towards “of the Year” awards.  Points are only awarded to agencies listed as Primary and Secondary on entries.  If several agencies are listed under Primary and Secondary, the points are divided among them.  

The rankings can be sorted and viewed by Agency, Independent Agency, Internal/In-House Agency, Network, Holding Company, Client/Brand, Production Company, Music & Sound Company, Creative, Highest Ranked Work, Country and Region using the dropdown menus.   

The One Show 2021 and ADC 100th Annual Awards Global Creative Rankings were announced separately earlier this week.

The One Club awards shows each have their distinct focus. The One Show judges focus on creativity of ideas and quality of execution, while juries for the ADC Annual Awards, now in its historic 100th year, maintain their long-running concentration as the champion for craft, design and innovation.

The One Club for Creativity, producer of The One Show, ADC Annual Awards, Type Directors Club Communication Design and Typeface Design awards, Young Guns and Creative Week, is the world's foremost non-profit organization whose mission is to support and celebrate the global creative community.  The One Show is a top global awards show for advertising, design and digital marketing, focusing on the creativity of ideas and quality of execution.  Established in 1921, the global ADC Annual Awards are the world’s longest continuously running creative award for advertising and design, honoring excellence in craft, design and innovation.  Creative Week takes place in June, and is the preeminent festival celebrating the intersection of advertising and the arts.
