Jury President Tor Myhren, President and Worldwide Chief Creative Officer of Grey, described "Leica Gallery" as being a nearly unanimous decision by the jury.

Of The Martin Agency Richmond's work for Geico, "Unskippable: Family Long Form 01". Myrhen said, "This broke every rule that we know in filmmaking. In the least sexy media space available, pre-roll, GEICO made content so good they challenge you not to watch. But of course, you can't take your eyes off it."
