The winners are reflective of Ogilvy’s mission to inspire brands and people to impact the world – They are campaigns that drove deep engagement and extensive conversation, playing into societal challenges or cultural truths, with significant brand and sales impact as a result.

“The Effie Europe Awards helps us to prove that creative ideas, as shortcut solutions to big brand challenges, can drive disproportionate impact.  In the current economic climate, when communication budgets need to work even harder, it’s especially important that we, as an industry, can prove the commercial value of what we do.” says Patou Nuytemans, CEO EMEA, Ogilvy. “I am also especially pleased to see our commitment to borderless creativity – or great ideas that happen at the intersection of things such as culture and innovation, or entertainment and societal challenges, recognized. In addition to creative and strategic excellence, our collaboration across countries and capabilities is our network’s biggest strength.”

Stephan Vogel, Chief Creative Officer, EMEA Ogilvy adds “Great work. For big brands. With this creative mantra we drive success for our clients.
