Southfield’s 2018 City Calendar wins ‘Award of Excellence’ in national 3CMA Savvy Awards Competition

The city of Southfield’s 2018 Annual Report/Calendar won an ‘Award of Excellence’ in the 30th annual Savvy Awards Competition sponsored by the City-County Communications and Marketing Association (3CMA). This marks the fourth consecutive year that Southfield's signature marketing tool has received national recognition.

The award was announced on September 6 at the 3CMA Annual Conference in Milwaukee, WI in the category of Photography - Published Multi-Image for communities in the population group 50,000-140,000. The city of Southfield’s entry was one of more than 700 submitted from municipalities and counties from across the country.

The Southfield 2018 Annual Report/Calendar was produced in-house by the City’s Community Relations Department featuring several images from the 2017 Southfield Photo Prize competition. The Southfield calendar provides the community with important city information while illustrating the beauty of the City through an array of professional high-resolution photographs.

The calendar also includes an advertising insert to provide local businesses the opportunity to reach the community and to help offset production costs. The advertising insert is an excellent way to reach more than 73,000 Southfield residents and 10,000 businesses for one extraordinarily low price. The return on an investment in a calendar ad reaps dividends throughout the entire year — providing lasting visibility for every business.

The Savvy Awards are held annually in cooperation with the National League of Cities to recognize outstanding local government achievements in communications, public sector marketing, and citizen- government relationships. The Savvies salute skilled and effective city, county, agency or district professionals who have creatively planned and carried out successful innovations in communications and marketing. Each year the number of entries in 3CMA's Savvy Awards competition continues to increase in quantity, quality, and scope of programs submitted. The program reflects the growing skills of communications professionals, as more local governments and agencies embrace and employ the concepts of enhanced marketing and communication with citizens. 3CMA utilized volunteer judges who are seasoned public relations professionals from across the United States to review every entry and provide constructive comments on the winning entries.
