The Thompson-Nicola Regional District has received an honourable mention from the Union of British Columbia Municipalities at the Community Excellence Awards in the Best Practices —  Civic Engagement category for a series of promotional vignettes focused on communities in the Regional District.

The honour was announced during the annual gathering of the UBCM in Vancouver on Thursday, Sept. 19.

The vignettes were spearheaded by the Thompson-Nicola Film Commission, using a grant from the Northern Development Initiative Trust. The production of the vignettes was also helped by the film commission’s expertise and access to industry professionals free of charge.

Randy Murray, chair of the TNRD, had high praise for all those involved in producing the vignettes, which he calls a valuable tool in raising awareness about the communities and municipalities in the TNRD.

“Small municipalities and unincorporated communities often do not have the capacity to develop the materials required to reach their target markets,” Murray said. “These vignettes, which we were able to produce at no cost to the taxpayer, will help spread the word about the great things our regional district has to offer.”

The seven vignettes cover a broad spectrum of topics, from festivals to rural living, to economic opportunities. The vignettes can be seen on the TNFC website http://www.tnrdfilm.com/videos and YouTube.
