The One Club

Jun 17, 2021

Following last week’s wins of Gold and Green Pencils, Havas Turkey Istanbul is the Middle East & Africa’s top-ranked agency in The One Club Global Creative Ranking 2021, combining results from The One Show 2021 and historic ADC 100th Annual Awards.

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

Havas Turkey was awarded a One Show 2021 Green Pencil, which recognizes the most environmentally conscious creative work for the year, for “Water Index” on behalf of Reckitt/Finish.  The agency also won a Gold Pencil with DEPOfilm Istanbul for “Birds Will be Back” on behalf of Reckitt/Finish in Out of Home, Experiential & Immersive.

In addition, Havas Turkey Istanbul’s Ergin Binyildiz is the top-ranked CCO in the region, and the agency’s Volkan Dalkilic is the number one ECD.

“Based on results of two of the world’s largest and most prestigious global awards programs, The One Club Global Creative Ranking is 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 Club Global Creative Rankings provide 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 Pencil 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.
