In the competition, 62 campaigns were selected to contend for the Global Grand Effie in their categories, from which 12 winners emerged following two rounds of judging.

CEO of Ogilvy Australia, Sally Kissane, said the agency was “beyond thrilled” to have come out winners at the inaugural award ceremony.

“This result is a testament to what we strive for every day at Ogilvy Australia – to make work that really works,” she said.

“I am very proud of our team who remain continuously committed to creating highly effective and ambitious work. I would also like to recognise the vital contribution made by our partners, and the cross-collaboration between teams within the Ogilvy Network, alongside our amazing client KFC.”

Traci Alford, global CEO, Effie Worldwide said: “The Global Grand Effie winners are truly the best of the best, proving exceptional across Effie’s 4-pillar framework for marketing effectiveness.
