SINGAPORE — MNC network Ogilvy and its clients have received more nominations for the 2019 Asia-Pacific SABRE Awards competition than any other firm, with 36 finalists in the Gold and Diamond categories, which recognize the best public relations campaigns of the past 18 months.
Ogilvy's haul, which includes Australian arm OPR and Shanghai's Soho Square, put it ahead of India's Adfactors, which notched up 30 finalists. BCW scored 28, ahead of Japan's Dentsu (25), Edelman (22), AvianWE and Weber Shandwick (15), Ruder Finn (14), Era Myanmar (11) and Current Global (10).
Other firms with multiple finalists include MSL (9), AKA Asia (8), First Partners (7), Sinclair (6), and Archetype, Ketchum and SPAG (5 each).
The winners will be announced at our annual SABRE Awards gala, which takes place at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Singapore on September 12. Tickets for the awards dinner—as well as the accompanying IN2Summit—are available here.
A complete list of Asia-Pacific SABRE Awards finalists can be found here, determined by more than 45 jurors following a record haul of over 1,600 entries in 2019.
