The Port of Long Beach has won top, coveted awards from two of the nation's leading organizations in the communications field, including the prestigious Telly Award and peer recognition from the national City-County Communications and Marketing Association, or 3CMA.
The Port won Telly Awards for its videos “Women at the Port,” which won in both the Education and Recruitment categories, and last year’s centennial documentary “Faces of the Port,” which won in the Entertainment category.
Founded in 1979, the Telly Awards is a widely known and highly respected national and international competition that receives over 12,000 entries annually from all 50 states and many foreign countries. It honors outstanding local, regional, and cable TV commercials and programs, as well as the finest video and film productions, and web commercials, videos and films.
At the 3CMA conference in Portland, Ore., September 6, the Port competed against government agencies across the country. It won first place (the “Savvy” award) for its community newsletter Re:Port, its internal newsletter Dock Talk, and video programming On the Go. A second place award (“Silver Circle”) went to the graphic design of last year’s Centennial Book, and the Port’s 100th Birthday Party event received a mention for excellence.
Founded in 1988, 3CMA is the leading organization for local governments that are innovating new and better ways of communicating with their citizens.
