PIAFYS 2013/14 annual ranking

03/11/2014 The PIAFYS 2013/14 season culminated with the Cannes Lions in June. The duo John Mescall and Pat Baron from McCann Australia had been at the top 2 spots for quite some time, and even after Cannes they managed to finish way ahead of the others. Surprisingly, the usual American and European representatives are missing from this year’s Top 10. Traditionally strong Brazilians are this time accompanied in the top positions by creatives from Japan and Dubai. Thanks to the award-winning campaign for the John Lewis brand, 3 creatives from the agency Adam & Eve DDB made it to the top 10. The closest European – Chris Garbut from Ogilvy France (Jury President PIAF 2013) – holds the 13th position.
