The city of Rocky Mount recently earned recognition in the 12th North Carolina City & County Communicators’ (NC3C) Excellence in Communications Awards.

The awards were presented at NC3C’s annual Spring Conference in Durham. A total of 248 entries were received.

“It is my honor to congratulate all the winners of the NC3C Excellence in Communications contest this year. The work that city and county government communicators do is impressive and is worth recognizing,” said 2018-2019 NC3C President Dana Kaminske. “Being able to showcase the excellent talent, programs, writing, videos, photos and more from our membership is exciting. This statewide award program helps our profession to be the most creative, educational and informative as we can be, using the latest technologies and resources.”

Categories included TV & Video, Communication Technology, Printed Publications, Most Creative Project for the Least Amount of Funds, Citizen Participation and Marketing Tools.

The city of Rocky Mount received a second-place award in the category of TV & Video for the show, “City Beat.” The show airs on C.I.T.Y. TV 19. The city also won a first-place award in the category of Printed Publications for the annual magazine, MY Rocky Mount.

“It was an honor for the Communications and Marketing Office to receive these two awards from NC3C. This is the seventh consecutive year the office has won an award from the association, and the competition gets tougher each year,” said Chief Communications and Marketing Officer Tameka Kenan-Norman. “However, our small staff, including Videographer Mark Adcox, Communications Specialist Robin Cox and Media Relations Specialist Jessie Nunery, work diligently to promote the community we love.”

Judges for the NC3C Excellence in Communications Awards were communication professionals from the Texas Association of Municipal Information Officers and a variety of communications industries across the state.
