Wieden + Kennedy Portland tops 2012 Bestads Rankings

 FROM BESTADSONTV   WORLDWIDE    December 31, 2012 20:21 (Edited: December 31, 2012 09:21)
http://www.bestadsontv.com/news/upload/Screen shot 2012-12-30 at 6.44.40 PM.jpgThe prolific Wieden & Kennedy, Portland has been ranked the world's number one advertising agency in the 9th Annual Bestads Rankings, released today.

The world's hottest shop was ahead of second placed BBH London, followed by DDB Group New Zealand and DDB New York in equal third spot, and Wieden & Kennedy, New York in fifth position.

Rounding up the global top 10 were Almap BBDO, Sao Paulo, RKCR/Y&R London and Y&R Sao Paulo in equal 6th spot, followed by Clemenger BBDO Melbourne and Colenso BBDO Auckland in equal #9 spot.

The USA, UK and Australia are once again the top three countries in the 2012 Bestads Rankings, as has been the case - albeit in different order in some years - since the rankings began in 2003.

The USA was a clear leader in 2012, with 266 points, followed by the UK on 192 points and Australia on 145 points.

Brazil was placed 4th with 117 points, followed by New Zealand in 5th spot (92 points), France in 6th spot (78 points), South Africa in 7th (74 points), Netherlands in 8th (44 points), with Argentina and Canada sharing 9th spot (39 points each).
