Greenville earned the Savvy Award and the Award of Excellence in the category of Photography - Single Image Use. The winning photo was an image of the fireworks display over the Town Common on July 4, 2018. An image of the G.K. Butterfield Transportation Center taken just before the opening of the building earned third place. Both images were captured by City Communications Specialist Aaron Hines.

The Savvy Awards, held in conjunction with 3CMA’s Annual Conference, recognize outstanding local government achievements in communications, public-sector marketing and citizen-government relationships. The Savvies salute skilled and effective city, county, agency or district professionals who have creatively planned and carried out successful innovations in communications and marketing.

3CMA accommodates local government organizations of all sizes and budget classes by judging entries in several different population groups. Over 700 entries in 40 categories were received. 3CMA utilized volunteer judges from across the United States to review every entry and provide constructive comments on the winning entries. 72 first-place Savvy Awards were presented. 72 second-place Silver Circle Awards and 73 third-place Awards of Excellence were also presented. The list of all award winners is available online at 3cma.org.

Anyone interested in viewing additional photos taken by Hines has the opportunity to do so this month. Hines is currently the featured artist at Emerge Gallery where his exhibition "A City at Work" is on display until September 26.
