WPP recorded almost twice the number of points of its nearest competitor.
Among the WPP winners was Y&R Dubai, named Agency of the Year for the third year running. Ogilvy Dubai and JWT Cairo were runners up. WPP agencies won 12 of the 26 Gold Lynx awarded and two Grand Prix.
Roy Haddad, WPP’s Director, Middle East and North Africa, was honoured with the title of Advertising Person of the Year.
Dubai Lynx, organised by Cannes Lions, recognises the best in marketing communications across the Middle East and North Africa.
Roy Haddad said: “WPP’s performance at the Dubai Lynx Awards underlines our commitment to the Middle East and North Africa. With Y&R Dubai as Agency of Year, and Ogilvy Dubai and JWT Cairo as runners up, WPP agencies led the way. It is a tribute to the strength and consistency of the WPP offering across the region.”
