The City of Garland is adding four new trophies to its collection from the annual statewide Government Programming Awards. The awards were presented at the Texas Association of Telecommunications Officers & Advisors (TATOA) conference in early November.
The City’s “Grow Garland” video earned a first place award in the Instruction/Training category. CGTV, Garland’s government access cable channel, was awarded second place in Overall Excellence in Programming. Garland brought home third place trophies in the Event Promotion category for its “Get Your Business Online” campaign and in the Best Community Event Coverage category for “Christmas on the Square 2013”.
The Video Services division of City of Garland’s Public & Media Relations Department produces videos for CGTV, web/social media and internal uses. “Video is a great way to share Garland’s story with those who live and work here or might visit us,” said Public & Media Relations Director Dorothy White. “We’re thrilled by this recognition by our peers. But more importantly, we hope our work helps people see Garland’s wealth of opportunities.”
CGTV programming is available on AT&T Uverse channel 99, Time Warner Cable channel 16 and Verizon FIOS channel 44. Live streaming and on-demand videos are available at GarlandTx.gov, click on the CGTV Videos button. Videos are also available on YouTube.com/garlandtxgov.
