McCann New York takes Agency of the Year, Ogilvy is Network of the Year, Omnicom wins Holding Company of the Year.

Ogilvy New York will take home home the Best of Show award for Amnesty International’s "The Refugee Nation," The One Club for Creativity announced today. The award will be presented at the 44th Annual One Show on Friday night at Cipriani Wall Street in Manhattan. The international human rights organization project advocated for a national identity for stateless refugees. "The Refugee Nation" also won the Best of Design and Best of Cross-Platform awards.

Host Jessica Williams, formerly of "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart," will also present the Agency of the Year award to McCann New York. The win is based in large part on its "Field Trip to Mars" virtual reality production for Lockheed Martin, which took home Client of the Year, ahead of Nike and Amnesty International. "Field Trip to Mars" also won the Best of Interactive award.

Network of the Year went to Ogilvy & Mather, followed by BBDO Worldwide and McCann Worldgroup. Independent Agency of the Year went to Droga5, and Omnicom took Holding Company of the Year, ahead of WPP and Interpublic Group.
