The Association of Film Commissioners International has announced that the Lighthouse District's own Monterey County Film Commission has won second place in the "Specialty Item" category in the ACFI's 2011 Marketing Awards competition for its tradeshow brochure handout.
The award-winning handout was designed as a "Reel Assets Portfolio" with the motto of "We can show you the money...but we'd rather show you our priceless locations." Locations within Monterey County were spotlighted with photos and captions on a money theme.
The AFCI Marketing Awards is a global competition encouraging film commissions to put forth winning components of their marketing and advertising campaigns. There were entries in eleven categories from ads and digital video to websites, with a judging panel of professional marketers and entertainment industry experts.
