More importantly, two new categories were introduced in the Abbys - that of Promo Activation and PR. Moreover, in the Brand Content category (introduced in 2013) it had added the broadcast and the publishing industry for the first time.
JWT clearly ruled the creative Abbys this year, with 40 metals - including one Grand Prix and 5 golds. Taproot chased close behind with 29 wins while Digital Law & Kenneth and Alok Nanda & Company bagged a Grand Prix each.
