Bader Rutter Dominates National Agricultural Contest

MILWAUKEE — Bader Rutter (BR) topped the field in this year’s Best of NAMA Awards ceremony in Kansas City, where the agency collected nine first-place and six second-place honors. Presented by the National Agri-Marketing Association (NAMA), these awards celebrate the nation’s strongest work in agriculture communications.

“The Best of NAMA Awards are the Oscars of the agrimarketing industry,” BR CEO Greg Nickerson said. “Achieving nine first-place awards among such strong competition truly is a remarkable feat. It demonstrates the power of working with clients who are not afraid to make bold decisions that lead to strategic, impactful and transformative results.”

BR’s first-place award tally was more than double the agency with the second-most first-place awards at four. Work on behalf of BR client Zoetis garnered seven first-place wins. BR client Dow AgroSciences took home two first-place awards.

Honors for direct mail, public relations, social media and advertising show a breadth of work that reflects the agency’s excellence across multiple disciplines, Nickerson said.

“BR encourages cross-discipline and cross-industry sharing,” Nickerson said. “With this approach, we’re able to continually offer our clients new thinking to best meet their marketing objectives and develop award-winning work.”

NAMA is the nation’s largest association for professionals in marketing and agribusiness.
