The legendary Kontor print ads
Kontor's ads were not always to everyone's taste and not always completely adult-free. Nevertheless, they caused people to talk about them, whether you liked them or not.
"Kontor gets you everywhere" ads, designed by Marc Schilkowski.
Ads that have been talked about
01. Legendary: Berlin at its best, as a reaction to the relocation of many labes from Hamburg to Berlin. 02. Kontor takes on GEMA after many videos are blocked by Youtube due to a copyright dispute. 03. The Atzen get an echo? Unfortunately not, it was the Kastelruther Spatzen, but the picture was taken at the right moment at the award ceremony. 04. The German Advertising Council reprimands Kontor Records for an allegedly too sexist print advertisement.

In 2020 and 2021 Kontor has released its own wine - each in collaboration with the wineries Knipser and Hensel. The wine is not available in stores, but was only given to friends and business partners. And of course drunk itself :)
