City communications nationally recognized
The City’s communications team aims to bring high-quality, useful news and information to the community. These efforts have been nationally recognized again with five awards. The cable television news show, Bloomington Today, took first-place honors in the City-County Communications and Marketing Association (3CMA) Savvy Awards in the TV Talk Show/News category. The 3CMA judges said it was an “Incredibly crisp and clean production with camera and audio work that would rival any national news broadcast. Absolutely wonderful production!” The Stories of Bloomington Today also took third place in the National Association of Telecommunication Officers and Advisors awards contest this year in the TV Journalism category.
The Briefing newsletter and 2018 State of the City event earned second place awards from 3CMA. The 2017 Corporate Report to the Community was also honored with the third place Award of Excellence.
The 2018 Savvy Awards contest was more competitive than ever. This year’s contest received 740 entries from 198 jurisdictions around the country. Only 104 entries received awards.
