TED Announces Latest ‘Ads Worth Spreading’ Winners

Is it that time already? Well, the folks behind non-profit org TED have announced this year’s list of winners for its annual “Ads Worth Spreading” challenge. How do they measure up to previous winners like Willie & Chipotle’s “Back to the Start?” Well, we’ll let you be the judge, but yes, Y&R NY’s “Annie” ad for Dell (below) as well as a couple of Super Bowl spots made the grade this time around including the Dodge Ram “Farmer” SBXLVII entry and Coca-Cola’s “Security Cameras” effort.

According to the TED camp, to find the work, they briefed six teams of two–one TED speaker paired with one “rising star from the advertising industry”–to seek out work in each category. In turn, TED’s 25 “Advocates,” which is not a Scientology phrase as far as we know but are those who are actual industry leaders in advertising, production, curation and film,” twisted arms and nominated across all categories such as  Talk, Social Good, Creative Wonder and Brand Bravery. See full winners list here.
