    New York Festivals releases 2022 AME report

    The AME Agency Report honours agencies that have produced cutting-edge and measurably effective creative work on behalf of prominent advertisers. The AME Brand Report recognises risk-taking brands that approved game-changing work that contributed to the brand's position on the AME ranking report.

    Top-scoring campaigns for 2022 improved brand awareness, engaged consumers and succeeded in driving results for global brands. Global agencies earning a place on the AME Agency Report employed first-of-its-kind technology, crowdsourcing, omnichannel marketing, media-led engagement, OOH activations, branded entertainment, experiential marketing, gamification, influencer-led campaigns, guerilla marketing, and donation-driven-initiatives to improve brand relevance, create contextual engagement, achieve growth, and deliver stunning bottom-line results.

    The UAE Government Media Office led both the AME Agency and Brand Report with an unprecedented dual honour, achieving the top rank on both the Agency and Brand Report. This is the first time in the history of the AME Report that an agency/brand earned the number one spot on both reports earning the highest number of points for their innovative and results-driven campaigns that include “The Warm Winter Livestream,” “The Donation Plate,” and “A Winter Through My Eyes.”

    Zulu Alpha Kilo Canada’s creative and effective work saw the agency rise to the second rank on this year’s AME Report. A robust number of campaigns including “The Micropedia of Microaggressions” “Come and Glow,” “Orders of Sacrifice” and “Tough Turban” earned top scores resulting in multiple AME Awards,

    “We’ve always believed in the power of ideas to create game-changing results for clients. We are thrilled to learn that our work has been recognized in equal measure for its creativity and effectiveness,” said Zak Mroueh, chief creative officer and founder, Zulu Alpha Kilo.
