Global Agency Network of the Year at MMA SMARTIES X

The agency network took home 32 awards across North America and APAC, including 13 Gold, 9 Silver, 9 Bronze and Best in Show for Mindshare China for its Louis Vuitton Aranya Show campaign. Additionally, WPP took home the award for Holding Agency Company of the Year.

Media Agency of the Year at MMA SMARTIES North America

#1 Agency in 2024 WARC Media 100 and 2024 WARC Effective 100

Mindshare’s New York office secured the #1 position on the 2024 WARC Media 100, solidifying the agency’s position as a global leader in media excellence. Mindshare also secured the #2 spot globally for Media Network, highlighting the consistent strength of its full network worldwide, with award-winning campaigns in different markets spanning Unilever, Tyson Foods, the Foundation to Combat Antisemitism, Castrol, Visit Sweden, Honest Eggs Co, and BlackRock. Mindshare offices in the top 100 Media Agencies, all of which made the top third of the list, include London (#14), Shanghai (#20), Melbourne (#22), and Ho Chi Minh City (#32).

Mindshare New York also took the #1 Media Agency spot for effectiveness and was ranked as one of the top ten global networks for effectiveness on the 2024 WARC Effective 100, the ultimate independent global benchmark celebrating excellence in advertising effectiveness.

“Creativity and effectiveness are inextricably synonymous. There is a persistent industry myth that creating effective media programs means depriving them of creativity and bold ideas and relying on ‘tried-and-true’ approaches,” says Gerhart. “The work that WARC does helps to dispel that myth and thread the link between the two. Being the top agency for the WARC Media 100 and WARC Effective 100 underscores this connection. I’m proud of our accomplishments and grateful for our clients’ fierce commitment to big ideas, risk-taking, and enduring growth.”
