I Will Sing You Home video wins communications award
I Will Sing You Home, a video that CBC helped produce leading up to the centennial marking the Battle of Beaumont-Hamel, has been recognized with an award.
The local chapter of the International Association of Business Communicators presented The Rooms with a Pinnacle Award at a ceremony in St. John's on Tuesday night.
"We are very proud of this award and even more proud of the connection the video made with the community," said Vanessa McBay, director of marketing and development with The Rooms.
"On this 100th anniversary, it's a great tribute to those who served during the First World War."
I Will Sing You Home was recognized in IABC's audio-visual category, for materials created to support a campaign.
The Ennis Sisters and the Shallaway Youth Choir perform in the video, which CBC made with producer Krysta Rudofsky.
The Rooms will host an extensive public ceremony on July 1, the 100th anniversary of the ruinous Battle of Beaumont-Hamel.
