NEW YORK, April 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- McCann Erickson New York was recognized as Agency of the Year at the Art Director's Club 92nd Annual Awards.  The ADC Annual Awards competition recognizes the best work globally of the year in print and broadcast advertising, interactive media, graphic design, publication design, packaging, photography and illustration.

"This is an outstanding moment for the entire New York office," said Luca Lindner, President of McCann Worldgroup, Americas, Africa and Middle East and Member of the Office of the Chairman. "The team has done a superb job helping not only to contribute to the success of our clients, but in helping to solidify our reputation as one of the best agencies in the world."

"It's an incredible honor and one of the most satisfying moments in my career. This is a wonderful affirmation of what happens when you build positive camaraderie and relentlessly focus on doing great work," said Linus Karlsson, Chief Creative Officer for Global Brands, McCann Erickson. Added Andreas Dahlqvist, Co-Chief Creative Officer for Global Brands, "Do great, innovative work, and anything can happen."

McCann Spain was also recognized with two awards, one Silver and a Merit for its work with the Spanish National Lottery and L'Oreal.

"What's so amazing about this honor is that so many teams from across the agency contributed," said Tom Murphy, Co-Chief Creative Officer McCann NY.  Added his partner Sean Bryan, "And the great work being recognized tonight wasn't just done for one or two brands, but a really broad range of our clients."
