There was plenty to celebrate at last night’s Agency of the Year gala, even if the winners were used to the limelight.

Cossette repeated as the Gold Agency of the Year winner, recognized for work it has done for Liberté, McDonald’s, OSAP, Public Mobile and the SickKids Foundation. The SickKids “VS.” campaign was also awarded Campaign of the Year honours for receiving the highest scores from this year’s jury.

In other repeat wins, FCB took the top prize in the Digital Agency of the Year category for the second year in a row. Edelman was given the top prize in the PR Agency of the Year category, while Touché won Gold in Media Agency of the Year – the second time the agency has done so since first winning in 2015. Touché founder Alain Desormiers was also recognized at the gala as Media Agency Leader of the Year.

Finally, the inaugural Design Agency of the Year Gold was given to Leo Burnett on the back of design-centric campaigns for IKEA, Printed by Somerset and Yellow Pages.
