The 5th position is held by Sugano Kaoru from Dentsu Tokyo, who scored with the campaign SOUND OF HONDA / AYRTON SENNA 1989. The updated PIAFYS shows the ranking of 2179 creatives.

We will give you the bird! Maybe…

13/01/2015 This year’s PIAF design was created by the Agency Hullaballoo, based in Prague, with offices in Russia and Poland. The agency, which has succeeded in making its way to global clients, is an interesting alternative to large agency networks in Central Europe.
The central motif for the PIAF 2015 creative concept is the PIAF trophy itself – the bird. It was given to many a great personality from the world of creativity, who have won at PIAF in the past. Of course in slang English, the phrase "to give the bird" has quite another meaning.
