The City of Pueblo has again received national recognition for its website, redesigned and launched this past July.
The Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals is an international organization consisting of several thousand members. This week, it awarded the City of Pueblo an Honorable Mention with its MARCOM award, in the Government Website Category. This is the first time the city has competed in this nationally esteemed competition.
“We are honored by this award, and it helps us gauge that we are making the right decisions when rolling out new services to our employees and citizens ,” says Information Technology Director Lori Pinz.
MARCOM is one of the oldest, largest, and respected competitions in the marketing and communications industry. The city faced some stiff competition with more than 6,000 entries from across the United States, Canada, and several other countries.
The entries in the contest come from corporate marketing and communication departments, advertising agencies, PR firms as well as government entities. AMCP’s contest is so popular that it had become one of the largest in the industry in the world.
The judges for the contest are industry professionals who AMCP says looks for companies and individuals whose “talent exceeds a high standard of excellence and whose work serves as a benchmark for the industry.”
The winners were selected from over 200 categories in seven forms of media and communication including marketing promotions, publications, and electronic communication.
This is the second honor the City of Pueblo website has received this year. In October, it placed third in its category the 2011 Digital Cities national annual survey.
