The One Show 2021 Global Creative Rankings methodology

Rankings in each category are calculated by the company that garners the most points overall for winning entries based on One Show Pencils, Merits and Special Awards, allocated as follows: Gold Pencil 15 points, Silver 7, Bronze 3, Merit 1, Fusion, SDG and Green Pencil 30 each, Penta Pencil 50, Best of Discipline 45 and Best of Show 90.  Additional detail is here.

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.  

All One Show 2021 Pencil and Merit winners were announced last week during the global Creative Week 2021, and can be viewed in the winners showcase here.  The One Show 2021 Best of Discipline winners were announced prior to Creative Week 2021, and are showcased here.

The One Club Global Creative Rankings, combining results from The One Show 2021 and ADC 100th Annual Awards, will be announced shortly.

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.
