Make some room on the agency mantle, there’s a boatload more awards to put on show after last night’s Advertising & Design Club of Canada gala, which sent plenty of agencies home with Gold trophies — 39 to be exact.

That’s eight more than last year, and while not everyone struck Gold at the 65th Directions show, many got their chance to shine, with 433 Silver and Merit awards given out for work in advertising, graphic design, editorial & book design and interactive media.

But the big ones, the Scarlet Letter Awards, went to only four agencies, two of which are on a bit of winning streak.

Leo Burnett and Lg2, two agencies that grabbed Gold titles at strategy’s Agency of the Year awards last week, both went home with the coveted Scarlet “A” trophy. The former for Design Firm of the Year, while the latter claimed the award as the Interactive Agency of the Year. Saatchi & Saatchi picked up the Scarlet Letter Agency of the Year title. And Sons and Daughters took home the fourth award for Production Company of the Year.
