New EDC videos win Gold, Platinum AVA Digital Awards

January 19, 2017

Three videos created by the Tampa Hillsborough EDC and Diamond View Studios and Spectrum picked up Gold and Platinum AVA Digital Awards this month.

The AVA Digital Awards is an international competition that recognizes excellence by creative professionals responsible for the planning, concept, direction, design and production of digital communication.

The StandUp Tampa video, shown at our 2016 Annual Meeting, won a Platinum Award in the Cultural category. The video was produced by StandUp Tampa founding member Tim Moore, CEO of Diamond View Studios. It features several local young entrepreneurs highlighting the reasons why Tampa is an ideal place for millennial talent to launch their businesses and careers. Thank you to Tim, the entire team at Diamond View Studios, and the members of StandUp Tampa team who made this video possible.

Our Welcome to Tampa and THRIVE videos, also shown at the Annual Meeting, received AVA Gold Awards in the Overview and Government categories, respectively.

Produced by Emmy-Award winning entertainment studio Spectrum, the THRIVE video featured Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn, Plant City Mayor Rick Lott, former Temple Terrace Mayor Frank Chillura, and Hillsborough County Commissioner Ken Hagan discussing how and why our community continues to thrive as a place to work and live. Thank you to our Investor Spectrum for their great work on this video.

The Welcome to Tampa piece was created to promote Tampa to the membership of the Industrial Asset Management Council (IAMC) at their Fall 2016 Forum in Indianapolis. Tampa will host the IAMC’s Spring 2017 Professional Forum in April. Produced by Diamond View Studios, the video depicts the people, places, companies, and qualities that make Tampa and Hillsborough County an exciting, diverse business destination that also offers an unparalleled quality of life.
