Late last week, Fort Erie found out that even through a pandemic, they are fairly good communicators. Award-winning, even.
The Canadian Public Relations Society (CPRS) awarded the Town of Fort Erie with two big awards. The town won a Gold Award of Excellence for the category “Canadian Digital Communications Campaign of the Year” and a Silver Award of Excellence for the category “Canadian Marketing Communications Campaign of the Year” for Fort Erie’s award entry titled: A Beach with Two Names.
Town CAO Tom Kuchyt said afterwards, “During COVID-19, we learned just how important effective communications can be when dealing with a crisis. It’s an honour to be awarded two national awards and one regional award for our Bay Beach communications in 2020.”
“These awards reinforce just how hard, and smart, our team worked in order to help keep residents and visitors informed of Bay Beach operations during the start of COVID-19.”
The digital communications category awards organizations that successfully engage with target audiences to create engaged communities. The marketing communications category awards organizations that successfully connect integrated public relations, marketing and advertising strategies to help market to external audiences.
