Who won at the ADC Awards?

FCB/Six was named Canadian Agency of the Year, while Giant Ant was recognized for the top campaign in Illustration.

FCB/Six and Giant Ant were the top-performing Canadian agencies at this year’s ADC Awards.

FCB/Six took home a Gold and Silver Cube for the “Destination Pride” project for PFLAG Canada. The agency also received a merit distinction for the “195 Countries. 195 Postcards” execution for PFLAG.

As a result, FCB/Six was named ADC Canada Agency of the Year. This is the first year ADC has named individual agencies of the year for each of the top 10 countries (as determined by the number of entries).

Giant Ant also took home a Gold Cube for the “Finding Out You Have Cancer” video for the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation, part of the organization’s “Imaginary Friends Society” initiative that resulted in the creation of 20 short films by different studios and production houses to help guide, support and entertain kids through the cancer diagnosis and treatment process. The video also won Best in Discipline for the Illustration category at the award show.
