The 10 final selections of the second TED Ads Worth Spreading initiative were announced from the TED stage only moments ago, and we’re excited to share the results. The winners are a truly diverse group, representing the best of the categories Brand Bravery, Creative Wonder, Social Good, Cultural Compass, Talk and Storytelling.
Entries and nominations came in from 39 countries, and the winners reflect that global scope. Our 25 industry leading Advocates and our six Nomination Teams — each made up of one TED speaker and one bright young thinker in advertising — helped us find and curate spectacular campaigns.
We were thrilled by the enthusiastic response of the global advertising community, as over 300 agency office s submitted hundreds of impressive entries through our Ads Worth Spreading channel on YouTube. And, we offer warm thanks to our incredible supporters YouTube, AICP, Zester, Art Directors’ Club, 4A’s, IAB, IAA, Contagious Magazine and The Advertising Club of New York.
We hope you enjoy watching the 10 final selections as much as we did.
