We are proud to announce that we have been presented with the Agency of the Year award at the biggest advertising festival in Bulgaria! With 7 gold awards, 7 silver and 4 bronze ones, NEXT-DC ranked first among other agencies – with impressive point difference of nearly 40 between us and the second agency. We believe that keeping our criteria high and being open to brave ideas will continue to help us in bringing new and inspiring projects to life.

This is the first year when FARA’s awards for Media and Creative Agency are merged into a single one – the praised award for Agency of the Year. That is why, being mostly digitally-focused, NEXT-DC is proud to stand out among agencies in various advertising fields. Our three most honored campaigns became Heineken’s “The Jigsaw”, Finlandia Vodka’s “Museum of Less Ordinary” and Jack Daniel’s “Holiday Songs”.

Our plan is to continue meeting our clients’ expectations for quality creative work and hope there will be many new opportunities in the future. NEXT-DC would like to congratulate Zagorka SA (Part of the Heineken Company) on being honored with the award for Advertiser of the Year. We would also like to thank them and the rest of our clients for the trust and cooperation during each of our campaigns.
