Leo Burnett and Jungle Media win Best of Show at 2015 MIAs

See all the gold winners from Thursday's gala event

Leo Burnett Toronto and Jungle Media took home the top honour at the 2015 Media Innovation Awards gala Thursday night for their work on IKEA‘s #sharethebathroom campaign.

Winning Best of Show, the retailer’s online effort gave visitors to IKEA’s website the opportunity to create custom ads and serve them within their own households – kids could tell their parents to get out of the bathroom, and parents could tell their kids to pick their towels up off the floor by serving ads to their family’s own IP address.



While #sharethebathroom took home the most coveted award, the most-awarded agency of the evening was Touché! Montreal, which walked away with three bronze, five silver and four gold MIAs for work it produced for clients such as Sport Chek and Desjardins. Its sister agency Touché! Toronto also won two gold, two silver and two bronze MIAs at the gala, held at Toronto’s Westin Harbour Castle.

Below is a list of all the agencies that won gold at the MIAs this year, along with their 2015 award tallies. Last year, Marketing implemented an Olympic-style system of determining the most-awarded agencies by giving five points for gold wins, three points for silver, and one point for bronze.

Only gold winners are listed below, but the full list of MIAs winners, including silver- and bronze-winning work, is available at our Media Innovation Awards site.
