FCB/Six and No Fixed Address won the most hardware among Canadian agencies at the ADC Awards this year, claiming five medals each.

As part of changes The One Club made to its awards programs due to COVID-19, the 99th edition of the ADC Awards – which recognize craft and innovation in advertising and design – were revealed online throughout the week.

FCB/Six’s wins came – as they have at award shows throughout the past year – for Black and Abroad’s “Go Back to Africa” campaign, picking up two Gold, one Silver and two Bronze Cubes across the Advertising, Interactive and Integrated categories.

No Fixed Address won a Gold and four Bronze Cubes for the Canadian Centre For Child Protection’s “Lolli” campaign and its “SickKids Airbnb” work.

Also winning a Gold Cube was Montreal’s Gentilhomme. Following up a Gold win last year for its work on hip hop artist Tierra Whack’s “Whack World” music video, the production house created visuals for Whack’s performance at Coachella, including a 3D model that interacted with the sound of the music and the crowd.

The full list of Canadian winners, which includes 16 agencies, production houses and studios, can be found below.

This year’s Black Cube for best in show went to “Bounce,” TBWA\Media Arts Lab’s campaign for Apple that utilized trampolines and other practical effects to make it look like the subject was bouncing off the ground and leaping through the air as he made his way through town. The win also helped TBWA\Media Arts Lab pick up Agency of the Year honours, TBWA win Network of the Year and Apple win Client of the Year.
