SmartBug Media—a leading intelligent inbound marketing agency that assists businesses in generating leads, increasing awareness, and building brand loyalty through inbound marketing, digital strategy, design, marketing automation, and public relations—today announced that the agency has won 61 MarCom Awards, 46 of which were for client work. In 2018, SmartBug has won 102 awards in categories of growth, creative work, and culture.

MarCom Awards recognizes outstanding achievement by creative professionals involved in the concept, direction, design, and production of marketing and communication materials and programs. Entries come from corporate marketing and communication departments, advertising agencies, PR firms, design shops, production companies, and freelancers.

The awards are judged by the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals (AMCP), the industry's preeminent third-party evaluator of creative work. Winners are selected from over 300 categories in Print, Web, Video, and Strategic Communications. MarCom is one of the oldest, largest, and most prestigious creative competitions in the world. A list of Platinum and Gold Winners can be found on the MarCom Awards website at www.marcomawards.com.

This is the second year that SmartBug Media has won MarCom Awards—the agency won 36 in 2017. According to MarCom Awards, only about 45 percent of submissions in the past have won, with approximately 15 percent of entries winning Platinum, 20 percent winning Gold, and 10 percent receiving an Honorable Mention in the past.

"It is such an honor to be recognized by industry professionals in AMCP. Winning 61 awards validates the amazing work that we strive to produce for both our clients and ourselves," said Ryan Malone, Founder and CEO of SmartBug Media.
