Results from the 19th Annual Webby Awards are in, and Leo Burnett Toronto scored a top honor, claiming the title of Webby Agency of the Year.
The honor is given to the shop that scores the most Webby awards and nominations. This year presented a tight race for agencies, but Leo Burnett's Toronto office edged out the competition, racking up six Webby's and five People's Voice Awards for the Always "#LikeAGirl" campaign.
The campaign's awards included Best Use of Video (Social), Short Form (Branded), Viral (Branded) and Online Commercial (Advertising and Media). Leo Burnett Toronto also brought in a win for its work on the IKEA "Quick & Easy" series.
Other top agency winners this year included R/GA, BBDO New York, Droga5, 72andSunny, Mullen, and Crispin Porter + Bogusky. Mullen's viral "World's Toughest Job" campaign received two nods in the Branded Live Experiences and Branded Unscripted (Online Film and Video) categories, while Ogilvy One London's "Magic of Flying" outdoor campaign racked up a few wins, as well.
