The International ANDY Awards, the first show of the year, celebrate the ideas, craft, innovation and brave thinking that pushes our industry forward. As one of the most sought-after awards for creative excellence in advertising for over 50 years, The ANDYs are a predictor and barometer of the industry’s best. We present the awarded campaigns created by Publicis Groupe agencies around the world, which were distinguished in this year’s edition.
National Women’s History Museum and Chief, Glass Ceiling Breaker (BBH New York)
Kamala Harris was about to break through one of the highest glass ceilings there is. She was about to become the first woman, first Black American, and first Asian American to hold the United States’ second-highest office. We thought that fact deserved some attention.

Google, Black Owned Friday (BBH New York)
Black Friday is a day of huge consumer spending. But in a year of challenging circumstances for small businesses, it felt like it needed to change. We flipped the focus and funds towards small Black-owned businesses, spotlighting their stories and the value they create when people shop at them.

Telekom Romania, The Online Park (Leo Burnett Romania)
For Romanian kids, the internet has become their playground, exposing them to dangers lurking online.

To make the online dangers understandable for the Romanian parents, Telekom created the “The Online Park”.
Kraft Heinz Country Time, Littlest Bailout (Leo Burnett Chicago)
With the economic repercussions of COVID-19, the big guys were muscling the little guys out of the way and pushing for bailout funds meant for small businesses. To help the smallest of small businesses, kids’ lemonade stands, Country Time launched the Littlest Bailout Relief Fund, a fund to send stimulus checks to kids who had to close their lemonade stands due to COVID-19.
Anheuser-Busch, Half Fans (Leo Burnett Colombia)
