    NEW YORK, Nov. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- TBWA\Chiat\Day (New York, Los Angeles
 and TBWA\MAL) has been named the "Most-Awarded Advertising Agency in the
 World" for 2007 by The Gunn Report, recognizing the creative leadership of
 Gerry Graf, ECD, TBWA\Chiat\Day New York and Rob Schwartz, ECD,
 TBWA\Chiat\Day Los Angeles along with the work of Duncan Milner, ECD,
     The Gunn Report, established in 1999, is based on a simple idea: to
 combine the winners lists from all of the major advertising award contests
 in the world. The world's top-36 shows for TV and top-22 shows for print
 are combined, as well as the leading online and interactive shows, thus
 establishing the annual worldwide league tables for the advertising
     Donald Gunn noted in the report that TBWA\Chiat\Day's "Snickers and
 Skittles were notable winners in Print. Skittles and Combos, which seemed
 to break just in time for Cannes last year, absolutely cleaned up in TV in
 the 2007 shows. (They are 4th and 5th in the 2007 Commercials table.) And
 the wonderful 'Mac v PC' campaign for Apple (from TBWA\Media Arts in Los
 Angeles), which debuted just in time for Cannes 2007, threatens to win
 everything in sight in 2008."
     TBWA as a network ranked 3rd overall in the report with a total of 15
 offices contributing to the ranking. TBWA offices ranked in the top-25
 were: TBWA\Chiat\Day New York, Los Angeles and TBWA\MAL (1), TBWA\Paris
 (6), and Creative Juice\G1 (15). TBWA offices in Berlin, Dubai,
 Johannesburg, London, Madrid, Auckland, Melbourne, Amsterdam, Hong Kong and
 Seoul, also contributed to TBWA's overall performance.
     TBWA's clients ranked in the top-25 most-awarded included Sony
 PlayStation (3), adidas (6), Skittles/MARS (10), and Combos/MARS (21).
     "I'm very proud of TBWA\Chiat\Day," said Lee Clow, Chairman and Chief
 Creative Officer, TBWA Worldwide. "But what is special about the TBWA
 network awards success is that each year a different office finds a way to
 contribute to our recognition. This year the New York and LA offices have
 been recognized for some great work for clients like Apple and MARS. Next
 year, who knows, it could be Shanghai and London."
