The Franklin County Tourist Development Council has been awarded two VISIT FLORIDA Flagler Awards for marketing, including a silver award for the Florida’s Forgotten Coast “The Florida You Remember” mixed media campaign.
That marketing campaign, consisting of digital, print and video marketing components, was selected from entries from destination marketing organizations across the state of Florida.
The TDC also won bronze in the rural marketing category for its “How to Forgotten Coast Like a Local” web series.
“Our home, Franklin County, is a special place. Our TDC team works together to produce our content. The recognition of a job done well is an honor,” said Ricky Jones, chairman of the Franklin County Commission and TDC.
VISIT FLORIDA, the state’s marketing entity, presented awards during the annual Governor’s Conference in Boca Raton on August 31.
Tourist Development Council Director John Solomon and TDC vendor Tana Kendrick, of the 2K Web Group, were on hand to receive the awards. The 2022 conference was also Solomon’s first meeting since being appointed to serve on the prestigious VISIT FLORIDA board of directors.
This makes the sixth VISIT FLORIDA Flagler award the TDC has won in the last three years.
“I am so very honored for the Franklin County TDC team which includes the Franklin County Commission, TDC board of directors, the TDC vendors, our partners and everyone that works in the hospitality industry in Franklin County,” said Solomon. “Our advertising efforts being recognized as some of the best marketing in the state of Florida is a tremendous accomplishment. “
The Flagler Awards, an annual statewide competition, was created by VISIT FLORIDA to honor the countless individuals and organizations that help position Florida as the No. 1 travel destination in the world.
