The Gunn Report, managed by founder Donald Gunn, managing director Emma Wilkie and director of communications Amanda Benfell, asked 1754 citizens of adland for their say in the ads.

“This new reel that resulted has turned out to be a compilation of 20 demonstrations of pure genius,” the trio wrote on the site.

“Please join us in applauding the agencies, agency teams, clients, directors and production companies who stand behind this wonderful body of work.”
