NEW YORK, Feb. 25, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Omnicom Group (NYSE: OMC) is starting the new year off strong with its agencies topping the lists of some of the marketing industry's most prestigious innovation and creativity rankings. Earlier today, the World Advertising Research Center (WARC) announced its WARC Creative 100, an annual global index of the world's top marketing campaigns and companies based on their business impact. Three of Omnicom's networks ranked among the world's top five most awarded creative networks in the industry. BBDO Worldwide came in as #1 for the 13th consecutive year, followed by DDB Worldwide as #2 and TBWA\Worldwide as #5.

WARC also recognized four of Omnicom's agencies in its ranking of the top 10 most creative agencies. BBDO New York topped the list as #1, AMV BBDO as #2, adam&eveDDB as #3 and Colenso BBDO as #8. As a result, for the second consecutive year, Omnicom Group was named the world's most awarded holding company.

"Producing brilliant creative ideas that drive business results for our clients is why we come to work every day," said John Wren, Chairman and CEO of Omnicom Group. "It is especially gratifying to see multiple Omnicom agencies producing award-winning work for a wide variety of our clients across different platforms and geographies. I could not be prouder of our teams and congratulate them for their outstanding work."

This news comes on the heels of today's announcement that OMD was named 2019 Global Media Agency of the Year by Adweek, a leading advertising industry publication. And just last week, Fast Company published its annual list of the World's Most Innovative Companies. Within the advertising sector, two of Omnicom's agencies were honored in the top 10, with BBDO New York ranked as #3 and TBWA\Worldwide ranked as #9. This was the second year in a row BBDO was featured on the list, moving up four spots from its 2018 position as #7.

In addition, The Drum's Big Won results were released earlier this month, mirroring WARC's results. BBDO came in as #1 for most-awarded agency network, followed by DDB as #4 and TBWA as #11. When it came to the most-awarded creative agencies, Omnicom impressively claimed half of the spots within the top 20: BBDO New York #1, DDB Chicago #6, Che Proximity #9, AMV BBDO #12, adam&eve DDB #14, Energy BBDO #15, TBWA\RAAD #16, AlmapBBDO Sao Paulo #18, DDB Group Germany #19 and DDB Group New Zealand #20.
