7 Agencies Who Won Big At The Digiday Awards
R/GA has a long track record of success, so it was no surprise to see their campaign with Samsung and Rihanna find tremendous success that culminated with the agency winning both the “Best Creative” and “Best in Show” awards at the Digiday awards.
The goal of the campaign was to showcase a different perspective for fans of Rihanna and to build hype for her latest album. R/GA and Samsung’s campaign worked, as the album went platinum in the shortest amount of time in history.

Huge Inc. took home the “Most Innovative Agency” award, and when you look at their work, you can understand why the judges tapped Huge with this honor. Huge has always focused on creating an innovative experience for its clients’ users.
For example, in 2015, Huge worked with MoneySuperMarket to create a more innovative experience to users. Huge’s content strategy for MoneySuperMarket worked as nine out of ten users found the site easier to use.
TVGla took home the “Best Use of Mobile” award for their Petmoji mobile app. The app was created by TVGla on behalf of Universal Pictures and the animated film “The Secret Life of Pets”.
The app gave users who downloaded the app the option to use any character from the film as an emoji. In just the first 10 days, the app was downloaded over 400,000 times, so it’s no surprise to see TVGla take home first prize in this category.
PMG is straight out of Fort Worth, Texas and their campaign for Beats by Dre, called “Straight Outta Somewhere”, took home the “Best Use of Social” award.
PMG partnered with R/GA and created the #StraightOutta campaign and app that became the top-trending topic for 7 days. The campaign was huge, as it became the no. 1 search topic on Google and Bing at one point.
