The ICA’s Creative Power Advisory Group, met in March 2023 to decide on the methodology that will be used to create the Creative Power List 2024 based on performance in 2023. Supported by leading audit, tax, and consulting firm, Grant Thornton LLP, the ICA will publish the 2024 rankings in January 2024.
The international awards that count:
Then the national shows:
In 2022 the following number of awards were issued by the national programs:
Therefore, a scoring multiple is applied to bring impact balance:
The weighting value being created as follows:
This delivered a scoring mechanic as follows:
|ADCC||CMA||Effie Awards Canada||Marketing|
|Shortlist / Finalist||1||2.3||11.4||10.0|
The international scoring across the selected awards is:
|Titanium and Creative Effectiveness Grand Prix||1000|
|Grand Prix, including Grand Prix for Good||700|
|Effie Awards (non-Canada)||Points|
|Global Best of the Best - winner||1000|
|Global Best of the Best - contender||100|
|Grand Prix - National||399|
|Gold - National||285|
|Silver - National||171|
|Bronze - National||114|
|Shortlist - National||11.4|
|The One Show||Points|
|Best of Show||1000|
|Best of Discipline||800|
This scoring mechanic will now be in place for 2023, so that the industry can transparently see what is on offer for their overall ranking from each award show. The Creative Power Advisory Group will take feedback and review this scoring rubric at the end of 2023 and set out the scoring system for the 2025 Creative Power List.
Co / Joint Entries
Sometimes entries to award shows are made as co / joint-submissions either by multiple agencies or by the same agency but multiple offices. The points allocated will be divided equally between each entrant in the creation of the Creative Power List.
The Creative Power Advisory Group welcomes feedback on this initiative and its methodology. It is created by the industry for the industry. Please email any feedback and nominations for the Creative Power Group to email@example.com.
