Marcel, McCann NY, MRM Chile and more win grand prizes at the International Andy Awards 2024

NEW YORK, USA — The International ANDY Awards has announced its 2024 winners as it celebrates its 60th anniversary of recognizing creative excellence. The ANDYs continue to find ways to reinvent the award process to better serve the global advertising community with education and transparency.  

Continuing to lead the path, the ADVERTISING Club of New York ensures top industry leaders are brought into one integrated jury to review and determine the best ideas, craft, bravery and innovation of the past year, including work from students entering the industry. 

To highlight some of the major global wins, the highest honor that shines light on the power of the idea Best In Show GRANDY, has been awarded to creative agency Marcel for its work “WoMen’s Football” for Orange, a campaign that helped expose the biases of women’s football, in particular a widely-held belief that the women’s team lack technical skills. The campaign only meant for the French market went viral worldwide.   


MRM Chile won top honors in Bravery for its “We Didn’t Write This” campaign for NotCo/NotMilk, as the company fought through a strong lawsuit in which presented it as a company without scruples, which was misleading consumers to buy a product that was not milk. After years of back and forth, the agency took several excerpts from the lawsuit and turned them into ads – as the lawyers’ writings turned out to actually define NotMilk in the perfect way. 

For the first time, Accenture Song’s The Monkeys was honored with Best In Show for Craft for its work “Play It Safe,” created for the Sydney Opera House’s 50th Anniversary to reawaken Australia’s once-great creative spirit – the defiant, reckless, boundless dreaming that led to a place like the Sydney Opera House being built in the first place. 

In addition, The Monkeys were presented with the Best Of Region title in APAC.  

The Best In Show RESET award belongs to McCann NY for its campaign with Microsoft, “AdLam,” the updated version of the Adlam alphabet – leading the way for McCann Worldgroup to secure Network of the Year and IPG as Holding Company of the year; leaving the network with a total of 26 wins across its agencies.  

Additionally, the Public Service Honor and Social Good award has been given to Publicis Conseil and Solar Impulse for its “Ready to Vote” work, a campaign around solving the gap between environmental challenges. As Solar Impulse continues its efforts in sharing work that is meant to have great impact on society, the agency has been awarded a $10,000 donation from The International ANDY Awards to continue its work.
