All entries were considered three times, first in the Products and Services section regardless of the media, second in the Best of Media section and finally in the Best of Admaking section.

13 cups went to Ibero Americas creatives, 10 to Asia Pacific's and 10 to Europeans. The most awarded agency was Almap BBDO Brazil, which thus won the Genius Loci Cup.

The Grand Cup, the highest ICAC award, went to GT Inc Japan for Sagami Rubber condoms for “Love distance” campaign. The CUP jury agreed that ‘Love Distance’ was the perfect example of a campaign that is fresh and unique, yet firmly rooted in local culture.
