Top 10 Experts’ Choice Awards CNY 2021 winners!

Festive ad producers have continued to put out inspiring work for the last year despite the multitude of challenges they’ve been faced with.

Hence, we did our part and carry on with our Experts’ Choice Awards to help the industry decide which brand, agency and production house did it best for Chinese New Year this year.

Our robust industry-wide survey this time recorded 2185 validated and unique voters. We weeded out those who tried to vote for their own work, either directly or through third party invested partners (nice try).

Our rankings are based purely on readers’ choices, and not on how many million YouTube views, etc.
