Congratulations to the 2021 Grand Ogilvy Award winner, 2020 Census and VMLY&R!
The ARF David Ogilvy Awards is the premier awards program that honors research- and insights-driven advertising. With these awards, we celebrate the late David Ogilvy’s forward-thinking belief in the importance of research behind effective campaigns.
At the ceremony, hosted by the talented Angela Yee, it was announced who took home the Gold, Silver and Bronze distinctions. Attendees saw vignettes of selected campaigns and learned more about their journey of the creative process led by data and insights.
A new and exciting element for this year’s ceremony was the SeeHer Award, presented by the Association of National Advertisers (ANA) and The Female Quotient. The mission of this award is to honor realistic representation of all in advertising, including accurate portrayals of women and girls.
To close out the evening, the Grand Winner was revealed – the “grand prix” of all entered campaigns.
The award ceremony served as a fundraiser for the ARF’s charitable foundation, ARF WIDE: Workforce Initiative for Diversity and Excellence. All ticket proceeds went directly to the foundation. Learn more about ARF WIDE.
