As a Brazilian advertising agency, Neogama is often associated with publicity, which is the country’s expression for the type of work performed to publicize the goods or services offered by a business. In association with its efforts to publicize, Neogama also received the Cabore Prize for being named the Agency of the Year in 2002.
