Other Canadian winners included Bensimon Byrne with a Gold in the campaign of the year, pro bono category for its work for Casey House. NFA was awarded a Silver in the campaign of the year, digital category for J.P. Wiser’s The Public Toast.
Canadian agencies are no stranger to the podium at this annual event. In 2016, Zulu was the first non-U.S. shop to ever win overall top honours, the first time it's ever happened in the history of the show. In 2017, the agency once again won International Agency of the year honours. Last year, Bensimon Byrne won Gold as International Small Agency of the year and NFA was awarded the silver.
