All the global rankings can be viewed by Agency, Independent Agency, Brand-Side Agency, Network, Holding Company, Brand, Brand Parent Company, Non-Profit Client, Production Company, Music & Sound Company, Creative, Highest Ranked Work, Country, Region, and Creatives (globally, and by region and country).
Rankings in each category are calculated by the company that garners the most points overall for winning entries based on One Show Pencils, Merits and Special Awards, allocated as follows: Gold Pencil 15 points, Silver 7, Bronze 3, Merit 1, Fusion, SDG and Green Pencil 30 each, Penta Pencil 50, Best of Discipline 45 and Best of Show 90.
If the same entry wins multiple awards within a discipline, the points for the highest award in that discipline is counted towards “of the Year” awards. Points are only awarded to agencies listed as Primary and Secondary on entries. If several agencies are listed under Primary and Secondary, the points are divided among them.
