Phoenix College received four Medallion Awards in a competition sponsored by District 6 of the National Council of Marketing and Public Relations (NCMPR), including a gold medallion for the 2010 PC Student Lip Dub. The lip dub, which combines lip synching and audio dubbing to create an informal and seemingly spontaneous music video, was unveiled at the college’s 90th anniversary celebration in September 2010. Also garnering a gold medallion was the Phoenix College Schedule eZine, a digital version of the class schedule in an interactive, flip-magazine format.
The college’s Arizona Latina Trailblazers Promotional Campaign, a multi-part marketing campaign highlighting an event to celebrate Latinas who helped shape the state’s history, received a silver medallion of achievement. A bronze medallion of merit was awarded to the Phoenix College Art Faculty Showcase Magazine, a colorful and creative piece focusing on the many and varied artistic talents of PC art faculty.
