City Recognized for Outstanding Communication & Events
Marketing Services Brings Home the Hardware
The City of Carrollton Marketing Services department won five awards from the Texas Association of Municipal Information Officers (TAMIO) for its extensive communication and promotional work.
The creative design for the 2015 Festival at the Switchyard campaign artwork resulted in a first place TAMI win. This is the City’s second year in a row to win first place in the Best Brochure, Flyer, or Poster category.
Carrollton brought home three Awards of Excellence for the Animal Services Pet Photo Calendar, the Police Department Recruitment Video, and the Public Works Water Conservation Message Puzzles. Additionally, the City’s Downtown Grand Re-Opening event in June 2015 brought home an Award of Honor as a Special or One-Time Event.
All projects submitted for awards are produced from an interdepartmental partnership. The joint efforts from the City continue to show and be recognized for their far reaching qualities and attributes. From public service and education to amenities and events, all departments within the City of Carrollton work hard to provide programs benefitting our residents.
“The TAMI awards not only recognize the City of Carrollton’s Marketing Department as one of the best in Texas, but they also serve to recognize the staff’s high priority placed on engaging our citizens to increase involvement, responsiveness, and investment in our City,” said Marketing Director Kelli Lewis.
The TAMI Awards program serves as a professional highpoint for municipal communications work in Texas. In addition to the peer recognition fostered by the TAMI Awards, the process allows all participating members to learn more about what best practices are at work.
This year’s awards were presented at the annual TAMIO conference held June 8-10 in Arlington. For a complete list of 2016 TAMI award winners, visit texastamio.org.
