The Association for Women in Communications today announced that Running Pony has won a national Clarion Award. The award is for a short documentary we produced for Neighborhood Preservation Inc., titled “Rundown: The Fight Against Blight in Memphis.” This marks the 12th Clarion Award we’ve won in the past 10 years.
“I play this video regularly for audiences around the country to communicate our work in a brief but impactful visual format, and the impact is always powerful,” said Steve Barlow, President of Neighborhood Preservation, Inc. “Running Pony was so much more than a vendor – they became, and remain, our strong partners in making Memphis great by collaboratively overcoming serious challenges.”
The Association for Women in Communications, founded in 1909, has nearly 1,200 members worldwide. For more than 40 years, the AWC Clarion Awards have recognized media and communications companies who demonstrate excellence in clear and concise communications. As one of the most prestigious competitions of its kind in the country, the 2017 competition attracted winners from 19 states and two countries. Winners included Bloomberg Businessweek, Mother Jones, The Daily Beast, TBWA/Chiat/Day, BBC, and WETA/Ken Burns.
