State of the City video earns national recognition

The City of Chandler’s State of the City video was honored with a Silver Circle Award at the City-County Communications & Marketing Association’s (3CMA) national conference. The second place award was in the “TV and Video – One-Time Special Programming” category for city populations of 161,000 and larger. 

The State of the City video highlighted major achievements from City departments throughout the year and featured a creative use of a drone that travelled around the City to interact with City employees while also highlighting the importance of transparency. The video can be viewed on the City’s YouTube channel:

More than 700 entries in 38 categories were received. 3CMA utilized volunteer judges from across the United States to review every entry and provide constructive comments on the winning entries.

"The concept and planning of this project showed the innovation that 3CMA members have," said judges of Chandler's submittal. "Creative graphics and illustrations added a lot to the video."

Formed in 1988, 3CMA is an international association of professional communicators working on behalf of city and county agencies and related organizations. The awards were presented at the association’s national conference held Sept. 7-9 in San Antonio, Texas.
