We’ve all heard the saying, “It’s the journey, not the destination.” And sometimes our journey through advertising can seem like a choose-your-own-adventure book. Unexpected delays. Budget cuts. Promotions. Challenging clients. Pitches gone wrong (and so, so right). New technology. Staying motivated. It can all be hard to navigate, and even harder to plan.
So who’s doing it well? Among us are industry professionals who zig instead of zag. They know when to wait for the perfect opening and when to sprint full speed ahead. In other words, they’re killing it.
AAF-KC is now accepting open nominations for the Young Advertising Professional of the Year, Creative Professional of the Year and Advertising Professional of the Year for the 2018 Journey Awards.

The Journey Awards honor Kansas City’s best and brightest ad professionals where they stand today. This award recognizes 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. No matter where they are on their career journey or how they got here, they’ve got something to teach us. And teach they shall. Save the date for the Journey Awards at The Bauer on April 25th.
