The Gunn Report has released a popular poll of the 20 best ads of the 21st Century (so far) and it features more entries from UK agencies than shops in any other country.

Six of the ads in the top 20 are the product of UK agencies, with both Fallon London and Wieden & Kennedy London appearing in the list twice. The other UK agencies to feature are Leo Burnett London and Abbott Mead Vickers BBDO.

The organisation compiled the list, which is not ranked in any order, by asking readers to choose ten ads each from a pre-selected list of 30. Provisions were also made for "other nominations".

In total, 1754 people completed the questionnaire allowing for The Gunn Report to create a list of the most popular ads released between 2000 and 2015.
