Sarasota County earns two national communications awards
SARASOTA COUNTY – Sarasota County was honored at the City-County Communications and Marketing Association’s (3CMA) annual award ceremony last week, beating out over 700 entries in two categories.
The county received two awards, including first place for the 2014 Annual Report in the printed publications category, and second place for Sarasota County’s “Fast Facts” in the graphic design category.
Both the annual report and Fast Facts are products created by the Communications department. The Annual Report documents the county’s efforts for each fiscal year, while the “Fast Facts” are a one-stop-shop for interesting information about Sarasota County.
The 3CMA judges deemed the annual report to be “full of facts, not fluff,” and the report’s theme of “How may we help you?” to be excellent. In addition, the 3CMA judges commented that the Fast Facts made “tough information simple to understand through graphics” and was very easy to read.
“This is a great accomplishment for Sarasota County,” said Sarasota County Administrator Tom Harmer. “The annual report and Fast Facts are just two of the many products we produce annually for the community. Both of these important
products are part of our continued efforts to inform our citizens.”
The national organization, 3CMA, focuses on public communications for local governments across the country. Based in Washington D.C., 3CMA boasts over 700 professional public communicators as members.
