PHD scoops top prize at Festival of Media Global Awards 2022

Award Wins

Agency wins 20 awards, including Campaign of the Year 

PHD, the media agency network that forms part of Omnicom Media Group, has won big at the Festival of Media Global Awards 2022, bringing home a total of 20 awards for clients including Volkswagen, Diageo, and The British Heart Foundation. The network’s trophy haul comprised of 6 Gold trophies, 7 Silvers, 6 Bronze, and, most impressive of all, the Campaign of the Year. 

The campaign Grand Prix was awarded to Break of Silence, produced by PHD Costa Rica for the InLesco sign language school, after winning 1 gold award and 4 silvers. In the campaign, the agency raised awareness of the challenges facing the deaf community in Costa Rica by creating the country’s first silent TV commercial break – 100% interpreted in sign language.  

PHD’s wins come after the network – including Touché! Canada – secured a record 50 shortlist nominations, the joint-highest in the competition.

On the wins, Philippa Brown, PHD Worldwide CEO, added: “We couldn’t be more thrilled with these wins, which would not have been possible without the excellent support of our clients and partners. In particular, I’d like to thank our incredible PHD teams across the globe for their hard work, tenacity, and creativity in helping our clients make the leap ahead of their competitors. Congratulations to all winners!” 

The Festival of Media Global Awards has been celebrating media and marketing excellence for more than 16 years. Amplifying and identifying key insights and benchmarks, the competition is one of the most lauded awards shows in the global media calendar.
