NEW YORK, NY/TORONTO, ON – January 11, 2024 – Thank you. Merci. Obrigado. Gracias. Grazie. Danke. ありがとう. 감사합니다.

That’s the word from Klick Health, after debuting in AdvertisingHealth’s 2023 World Top 10 publication as the year’s Most-Awarded Independent Agency and Second-Most-Awarded Overall Agency. With a body of work that’s been winning the hearts (“The Bridge”) and minds (“Lifesaving Radio”) of creative juries around the world, Klick was also recognized for having created the #1 and #4 most-awarded health campaigns in 2023.

“Thank you–a giant thank you–to everybody at Klick who has believed in and contributed to our vision to become a leading creative force in the industry,” said Klick’s Chief Creative Officer Rich Levy. “And thanks to AdvertisingHealth and everyone around the world who has responded so wonderfully to our work. We are truly grateful and inspired to keep elevating our creativity.”

Klick Co-Founder and Chairman Leerom Segal added, “We also want to thank our clients and other valued partners for their ongoing trust, collaboration, and desire to push the boundaries of health to enhance outcomes for patients. We are on an extraordinary journey together and are excited about the road ahead.”

AdvertisingHealth’s annual World Top 10 showcases the world’s most-awarded health & wellness, pharma, and craft (health) creative campaigns, and the agencies that created them. The scores were calculated from award-wins at five of the world’s leading health advertising shows: Cannes Lions Health; Clio Health; The One Show; The Creative Floor Awards; and London International Awards (LIAs).

Mark Evans, Founder and Co-Editor of AdvertisingHealth said, “What a year for Klick Health. It's no mean feat to be recognized as the AdvertisingHealth Independent Agency of the Year. It requires consistently great work across the board, consistently awarded in an incredibly competitive healthcare environment. Congratulations to the team!”

The Bridge,” the animated short Klick produced for the non-profit PAWS NY, tells the “powerful” and “heart-tugging” story of a man struggling with his mental health and, in parallel, a dog abandoned on the streets of New York.

The “innovative” campaign has been a “one-of-a-kind” fan-favorite since its March 2023 launch, with honors, including four Clios (one Grand, two Golds, one Bronze), two Clio Shortlists, four The Creative Floor Bricks, two Silver LIAs, one Bronze Cannes Lion, and four Cannes Lions Shortlists.
