But sometimes, we want to put the market aside and find out which agencies had the best ideas. Enter the 2023 Hermes Creative Awards and a chance to roll out the red carpet for the best concepts and campaigns of the year. This year, CJRW took home 33 recognitions, including 20 Platinum and Gold awards!
