Happiness / an FCB alliance, Belgium tops the AME Agency Report, for OVK / PEVR (Parents of Road Victims) leads the Brand Report

New York, NY | May 23, 2019

Since 1994, the AME Awards has honored campaigns world-wide that successfully demonstrate groundbreaking solutions to challenging marketing problems. The AME Report continues that tradition with this two-tiered ranking report honoring both agencies and brands. 

The AME Agency Report honors agencies who have produced cutting-edge and measurably effective creative work on behalf of prominent brands and earned recognition from the Grand Jury. The AME Brand Report recognizes innovative brands for their game-changing effective campaigns and the forward-thinking advertisers who approved these compelling campaigns.

This year Happiness / an FCB alliance, Belgium and client OVK / PEVR (Parents of Road Victims) each earned the top-ranking spot on the AME Report. Happiness Belgium’s CEO, Karen Corrigan had this to say about being number one on the AME Agency Report and their client OVK / PEVR (Parents of Road Victims) earning the top slot on the Brand Report.

“As a Belgian agency, being named 'Agency of the Year' at the New York Festivals AME Awards is absolutely amazing and a great proof that big ideas can come out of small countries. I trust that this is a good motivator for all advertisers and agencies in like-sized countries. Be fresh, be the first and most of all: be immune to the impossible. I want to thank all of our clients, that follow us when we try to lead the way. And to the people at Happiness without whom this could never be possible. And as we always say: Happy people make great work. And great work is what makes people happy.” –Karen Corrigan. CEO Happiness, an FCB alliance.
