MediaCom emerged victorious at the Festival of Media Global Awards 2017 after winning six gold trophies and walking away with the coveted 'Agency Network of the Year' Award and 'Campaign of the Year' for NHS Blood & Transplant's 'Missing Type' campaign. Furthermore, the agency's parent company GroupM won 'Media Group of the Year'.

Other big winners of the night include Touché! PHD, who scooped the 'Agency of the Year' gong, along with Mediaplus, who was crowned 'Independent Agency of the Year' after winning Gold for its 'WhatsGerman' and 'The Fashion Mag Hijack' campaigns. 

OMD also posted an impressive performance, picking up six golds for winning campaigns including 'End the Silence' and 'Capacity Based McDelivery'.
