Mar 09, 2010 (06:03 PM EST)

NEW YORK, March 9 /PRNewswire/ -- DDB Worldwide's Matt Ross, Matt Oxley and Andreas Dahlqvist have been named to the "The Creativity 50," the annual compilation from Creativity and Advertising Age featuring the people and companies that have had the biggest impact across the creative culture landscape.

The fifth annual "Creativity 50" spotlights tech pioneers, film directors, musicians, creative directors, agency groundbreakers, film directors, entrepreneurs and more, with James Cameron, Kathryn Bigelow, Spike Jonze and Lady Gaga among them.

Under Dahlqvist, the editors said DDB Stockholm is "inspiring envy again, thanks largely to its mind-numbing digital tests of mental sharpness in an ongoing Swedish Armed Forces campaign; its innovative print and integrated efforts for McDonald's and, perhaps most significantly, Volkswagen's 'Fun Theory' campaign."

Tribal DDB Creative Director Matt Ross and Matt Oxley, Head of Technology, were selected for "catapulting decades-old cardboard games out of your parents' basement and into the twenty-first century" in a "deft blend of creativity and technology."

Bob Scarpelli, Chairman and Chief Creative Officer, DDB Worldwide, said, "Today, technology is inspiring us to use our creativity in new and liberating ways every day. Andreas and the Matts are leading both our company and industry into the future."
