With the focus of health and safety for all honorees and attendees, AAF-KC has decided to cancel the in-person 2020 Journey Awards celebration. All award recipients will instead be honored in a virtual celebration during the week of July 12 across all AAF-KC digital channels.

“We want to ensure everyone is able to celebrate safely,” said AAF-KC VP of Events Hannah Bower. “While we cannot wait to see everyone’s faces again soon, we want everyone to feel very comfortable when AAF-KC hosts its next large-scale event.”

The 2020 Journey Awards honor five visionaries leading Kansas City advertising. A Creative Professional, an Ad Professional, a Trailblazer, a Young Professional, and a Silver Medal Award Winner.
