DDB wins agency of the year at Singpaore’s Hall of Fame Awards, BBH wins best campaign for NTUC Income

DDB has claimed agency of the year at the Institute of Advertising of Singapore’s Hall of Fame Awards.

The agency was handed the award based on its work for StarHub and McDonald’s, which was named client of the year.

BBH won campaign of the year for its work for NTUC Income. The campaign mocked the misleading disclaimers and confusing jargon that is synonymous with the insurance industry.

Creative of the year went to Y&R’s chief creative officer Farrokh Madon, while Asia Pacific Breweries’ Rene De Monchy won client of the year.

Ogilvy & Mather’s worldwide creative director Tham Khai Meng picked up a lifetime achievement award.
