Leo Burnett Worldwide is ranked number one in the ‘All Gunns Blazing’ category of the popular annual Gunn Report rankings released last week, marking it the third consecutive win in this category for the network. The All Gunns Blazing ranking is based on results from industry awards competitions and an agency’s ability to present new world and integrated thinking on a global scale.

With 31 markets contributing to its final score – a Gunn Report and Leo Burnett record – the agency was again honoured as one of the most awarded networks, increasing its total score by 20 percent from 2009 and joining BBDO, DDB and Ogilvy & Mather as the top advertising contenders in the world.“Leading the industry in new-world and integrated thinking for the third year in a row is testimony to the depth and breadth of talent that resides in the Leo Burnett global network,” said Mark Tutssel, Chief Creative Officer of Leo Burnett Worldwide.

The Gunn Report is an annual publication detailing the most successful print and television advertising campaigns of the year. Authored by Donald Gunn and Emma Wilkie, the report is one of the most authoritative analyses of ad campaigns in the world.
