The City of Garland continues to earn national recognition for excellence in video production and programming. The National Association of Telecommunications Officers and Advisors (NATOA) announced the winners of its 2020 programming awards on Sept. 3.
Garland’s Public & Media Relations (PMR) team earned three first-place trophies. In the Event/Program Promotion category, the “Do You Like the Arts?” promo brought the Granville Arts Center’s “Vision of the Arts” sculpture to life to promote great arts offerings in Garland.
In the Public Service Announcement category, the team found a fun, imaginative way in “Can’t Flush This” to remind residents that toilet paper substitutes are bad for their plumbing and the city’s sewer system.
In the Military category, the team recapped the impactful, emotional visit of a traveling Vietnam War memorial in “A Look Back at The Wall That Heals.”
