Los Angeles-based 72andSunny (eight nominations), McCann in New York (six nominations) and Ogilvy & Mather in Paris (six nominations) weren’t too far behind and are all in consideration for the Webby Agency of the Year award.

Other agencies like Clemenger BBDO, Droga5, Mullen and Pereira & O’Dell each have four nominations and are also looking to win the Webby Agency of the Year honor.

Popular campaigns including “The Epic Split” by Forsman & Bodenfors, “Real Beauty Sketches” by Ogilvy & Mather in Brazil, “The Scarecrow” by Creative Artists Agency and “The Next Big Thing” by 72andSunny are also being recognized with nominations.

The Webby Awards have lauded branded content by Ogilvy & Mather (“A Boy and His Atom”), Barton F. Graf 9000 (“Climate Name Change”) and GREY (Canon’s “Project Imaginat10n”) as well.

The Webbys will announce award winners at a ceremony on May 19 which will be hosted by Patton Oswalt.
