Paulsen earned 13 advertising awards, including five first-place honors, in the 2022 regional Best of NAMA competition from the National Agri-Marketing Association.

The Best of NAMA awards honor the best work in agricultural communications.

“We work with clients who are willing to take risks. These campaigns are great examples of what happens when you have creative and collaborative relationships in marketing,” said Paulsen President & CEO Marcus Squier. “We’re thankful to our clients for letting us tell their stories, and we’re thankful to NAMA for recognizing these efforts.”

Paulsen’s 13 awards—which span multiple categories and clients across industries—will move on to the National Best of NAMA judging. Winners of the national awards will be announced in April.

“It’s exciting to be a part of this industry and see how the companies and products have evolved over the years,” said Sara Steever, Paulsen Chief Technology Officer. “Ag and rural audiences are unique. Each of these campaigns spoke to the values and needs of their audiences in compelling ways.”
