2019 Journey Awards

2019 Journey Awards

The Bauer • 115 W 18th St, Kansas City MO

We’ve all heard the saying, “It’s the journey, not the destination.” Sometimes the advertising journey can seem more like a “Choose Your Own Adventure” book: Unexpected delays. Budget cuts. Promotions. Challenging clients. Pitches gone wrong (and so, so right). Not enough booze. New technology. Staying motivated. It can all be hard to navigate, and even harder to plan.

Some of us are doing it well. They take alternate routes without worrying about the consequences. They know when it’s time to be patient and when it's time to press. You might even call them advertising gurus.

Hear from your winners,
about the long strange trip.

The Journey Awards honor Kansas City’s best and brightest ad professionals where they stand today. This award recognizes four local leaders who make an impact on the Kansas City advertising community through volunteerism, personal or agency-led efforts, or commitment to the development of others.
