It’s been a great year for GPJ. The consistently creative work, spectacular production and flawless execution of Team GPJ has been getting noticed. A lot.

And we’re not just being noticed for client work, but for our work in our communities, and internally for our workplace culture. Those mean just as much to us, and we’ll continue to strive for those wins into 2019 and beyond.

Below is an updated list of awards that have been announced thus far this year. We’d like to thank each GPJ team member, client and agency partner associated with these accolades. We’re better together, and are so thankful for each one of you!
