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.
