Public power utilities recognized for excellence in communications

Forty-three public power electric utilities and utility organizations earned Excellence in Public Power Communications awards from the American Public Power Association.

The awards were presented on Nov. 7 at the Association’s Customer Connections Conference in Orlando, Fla.

The annual awards recognize excellence in communications. This year’s entries were judged in three categories: print/digital, web/social media, and video.

Awards were given to those that showed ingenuity and creativity in telling their stories through outstanding copy, design, financial data presentation, graphics, social media engagement, video editing, and web layout and interactivity.

The judges were: Kym Wootton, Vice President of Marketing at Esource; Evan Vaughan, Media Relations Officer at the American Wind Energy Association; Greg Alvarez, Deputy Director of External Communications and Public Affairs at the American Wind Energy Association; and Steve VanderMeer, Senior Vice President of Planning and Marketing at Hometown Connections.
