Several area companies were recognized in March as Fountain Award winners. The awards highlight programs and campaigns focused on advertising and marketing.

Businesses gathered at the Main Event Space on March 7 to be recognized for their work from 2018. Among the winners were alumni of Thinking Bigger’s 25 Under 25 Small Business Awards, EAG Advertising & Marketing (Class of 2007), Skyline E3 (Class of 2009), Candid Marketing + Communications (Class of 2012), JNA Advertising (Class of 2015) and ER Marketing (Class of 2017).

Businesses submitted their work through the Fountain Awards’ site for categories including advertising, brand identity, sales enablement, event marketing, public relations, internal marketing, integrated program, content, video and all forms of digital marketing. Judging was based on creativity, production, strategy and results.

EAG was named as KC Agency of the Year and won 10 additional awards.
