The results of Televisual’s annual Commercials 30 survey are now out with Academy taking the top spot in 2020.

It’s been an incredibly creative year for the company with Renault Clio’s The French Exchange and Playstation’s Feel the Power of Pro just two stand out spots.

Somesuch takes the second position this year in the overall 30 with Riff Raff third and Blink in fourth place.

As well as taking the temperature of the sector, the commercials 30 survey asks production companies to vote for their favourite rival companies as well as their favourite ads, directors, agencies, post houses, editors and vfx artists.

This year, Academy was also voted as the most admired production company among its peers with Somesuch in second and Pulse Films and Riff Raff sharing joint third position.

The commercials producers voted Academy’s Ian Pons Jewell as the industry’s favourite director with Somesuch’s Kim Gehrig taking second spot and Academy’s Frederic Planchon third.

The Mill took the top spots in the two polls of production companies’ favourite post houses, reaching number one in both the ‘highest rated’ and ‘used most’ votes. adam&eveDDB was voted best agency for another year, Joe Guest at Final Cut was voted best editor and MPC’s Jean-Clement Soret was crowned best colourist once again.
