City of Edmonton, Manager’s Awards of Excellence



Project Description

Our clients at the City of Edmonton hired us for the third year in a row to find a creative way to highlight all 15 nominees in its employee recognition program, the City Manager’s Awards of Excellence. The top three nominees are spread out across five categories: Innovation, Leadership, Customer Service, Advancing Corporate Culture, and Stewardship. It was important to the client that the videos didn’t focus solely on the awards, but rather showcase the pride these individuals take in serving the organization and public. Urban Video led pre-production creative and interviews.

The videos had to be under a minute each to keep the ceremony fast-paced, which sometimes presented a challenge when nominees had to concisely explain complex programs in only a few seconds.

The videos premiered at the Awards of Excellence Gala and are also featured on the City of Edmonton’s intranet.

“Thank you very much for helping transform our nominees and award winners into stars. You truly did work your magic and helped create inspiring stories that celebrate our employees. Your efforts are greatly appreciated.”
