Gunn Report For Media Names OMD Worldwide Most Creative Media Agency For Seventh Consecutive Ranking

NEW YORK, Feb. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- For the seventh consecutive time, Omnicom Media Group Agency OMD Worldwide has been named the world's most creative media agency by the Gunn Report for Media, maintaining the  exclusive lock the agency has held at the top of the rankings since the report was launched in 2004.

The Gunn Report for Media is the industry standard for evaluating media creativity, ranking agencies according to their performance in the top industry awards shows around the world. Most importantly, it recognizes the vital role media agencies play in today's highly competitive and fragmented communications landscape

The Gunn Report for Media rates agencies on a point system based on awards won in 53 annual award competitions worldwide.  With 331 points, OMD easily bested second- ranked Mindshare (WPP) with 229 points and third-ranked Starcom (Publicis) with 218 points.

The Gunn Report ranking comes on the heels of the January Network Diagnostics report from the Research Company Evaluating the Media Industry (RECMA), which named OMD Worldwide the top ranked global media network by performance for the third consecutive year. Concurrent with these rankings, OMD also topped RECMA's  July 2012 Global Billings report, holding on to its position as  the largest global media agency by billings, with 10.7 percent of market share; and was also the top ranked media network on the 2012 Effies Effectiveness Index.

"The most important thing about indices like the Gunn Report is the service it provides to clients who need to know which media agency is doing the best work – more often, more consistently and in more regions - than any other network," says Mainardo de Nardis, President and CEO, OMD Worldwide. "We're incredibly proud that for seven consecutive reports, the answer to that question has been OMD -  now officially ranked as the biggest, best, most creative and most effective media agency in the world." 

Elsewhere in the 2012 Gunn Report, OMD was also featured in the Campaigns of the Year section, which highlighted winning campaigns from the global festivals included in the report's evaluation. OMD was recognized for its Google Voice Search campaign from Manning Gottlieb OMD, which took the Media Grand Prix at the 2012 Cannes Lions, and that the Gunn Report cited as a campaign that combined creativity and effectiveness.
