Seattle Southside Visitor Services was nationally recognized last week with the prestigious SAVVY Award by the City-County Communications and Marketing Association (3CMA) for its Vacation Planner. SSVS was also awarded an Award of Excellence for its newly designed website.

At the awards ceremony held in Anaheim, California, the judges commented that SSVS’ Vacation Planner contained “outstanding photography, compelling copy and was highly informative” and the website’s “functionality, searchability and eye-appeal provided an excellent tool to both visitors and residents.”

The Savvy Awards, sponsored by 3CMA, recognize outstanding local government achievements in communications, public sector marketing and citizen-government relationships. The Savvies salute skilled and effective city, county and agency professionals who have creatively planned and carried out successful innovations.

Savvy Awards are given in 11 overall categories. Over 700 entries were submitted from across the country this year.
