Starting with 2022, the EFFIE Index will be calculated differently:

  • Until now, for a lead agency, the points were awarded as follows: 2 pts for Finalist; 4 pts for Bronze; 6 pts for Silver; 8 pts for Gold; 12 pts for Grand. For contributing agencies = ½ vs lead.
  • From 2022 onwards, points will be awarded as follow: 2 pts for Finalist, 6pts for Bronze, 12 pts for Silver, 24 pts for Gold, 48 pts for Grand. For contributing agencies = ½ vs lead, as before.
