WARC Rankings, successor to the Gunn Report and WARC 100, tracks the results of the most prestigious and rigorous creative, effectiveness and media award shows in the world, as determined by the industry, to provide a global and independent benchmark of marketing success.
To compile Asia's Best of the Best 2019, WARC has combined Asia's results from each of this year's WARC Rankings -- Creative 100, Effective 100, Media 100 -- compiled from performances in award shows during 2018.
Whilst Mindshare Shanghai takes the top spot for the best agency in Asia across the WARC Rankings, there are six Indian agencies in the top ten.
The majority of the Indian campaigns from the Asian rankings deal with societal issues such as hygiene, disabilities and illness, and gender discrimination. One standout campaign from India is Carvaan's Let's Make Viral Products Instead!, which ranks #1 in the Asian rankings as well as in the overall Effective 100 rankings.
KFC has been ranked the best brand overall with campaigns featuring in two of the three Asia rankings. This boosts its owner Yum! Brands into second place in the top Advertisers table through the performance of a range of brands including Lifebuoy and Marmite.
Amy Rodgers, Managing Editor, Research & Rankings, WARC, says: "We've deep-dived into the rankings putting a spotlight on the campaigns, and the companies behind them, that champion Asia's ad industry across creativity, effectiveness and media innovation.
