    NEW YORK, April 10 /PRNewswire/ -- OMD Worldwide, the global media
 communications agency, was named the most awarded media agency in the world
 for the fourth year in a row by the just released 2007 Gunn Report for
     The Gunn Report for Media, which evaluates global media creativity,
 ranks the most-awarded campaigns agencies and advertisers in media
 competitions across the world. Since the Report began in 2004, OMD has
 maintained top ranking, this time outscoring its nearest competitor by more
 than twice as many points in the latest round of competition. OMD captured
 234 points with the second ranked media agency scoring 110.
     The Report rates agencies on a point system based on awards won in
 annual award competitions worldwide. Importantly, it recognizes the role
 that innovative, creative and effective media make in building brand
 engagement and demand with consumers.
     "Consumers don't want to be told what to do anymore. They want to
 participate, share and collaborate as never before. They want to control
 and dictate when, where and how they are communicated to," Isabelle Musnik,
 editor of The Gunn Report for Media, said. "Media creativity is therefore
 an effective universal tool for brands for talking with consumers, meeting
 objectives and standing out in a crowded field of competitors."
     Daryl Simm, Chairman and CEO of Omnicom Media Group, said, "Both
 accolades are a wonderful tribute to all our people around the world -- in
