The List of World Branding Awards winners provide details of the winners of the World Branding Awards, an international award presented to some of the best global and national brands for their work and achievements in branding.[1] The awards are organised by the World Branding Forum, a registered global non-profit organisation based in London.[2]

The first awards ceremony was held at One Whitehall Place at the Royal Horseguards Hotel in London on October 26, 2014. The event was hosted by David Croft from Sky Sports.[3]

Sixty nine brands from 25 countries won an award.[4] Each brand is named "Brand of the Year" in their respective categories.[3] The "Brand of the Year" logo is a registered trademark.[5] The awards gave special recognition to Tony Fernandes, Group CEO of AirAsia and Chairman of Queens Park Rangers F.C., naming him "Brand Builder of the Year" for his outstanding work in building the airline brand.[6]

The second part of the 2014-2015 awards, took place at the Hilton Paris Opéra in France on 24 March 2015. The Paris ceremony had an emphasis on food, beverage, luxury, fashion, lifestyle, hospitality, and service brands. Fifty brands from 22 countries were awarded at this ceremony.[7]
