AC&C Wins Golden ARC Award

Winner, Winner! 

We are so proud to announce that we are the winner of the Agricultural Relations Council “Golden ARC Award” for our efforts on the ABC’s Harvest Dust Videos Series! Specifically, we were awarded the “Video Programs” award in the “TACTIC” division. With intentions of supporting our industry and desire to continue to be a part of the Ag Marketing ecosystem, we applied and didn’t look back!

It was an honor teaming up with The Almond Board of California to develop the harvest dust video series. The set consisted of four informative videos, both in English and Spanish, which focused on almond harvest best practices. 

“It was a privilege to work on this project closely with the Almond Board industry team on this video series. This is our first ARC award, and we hope to add a few more trophies to our name!” -Ali Cox. 

Although the COVID-19 pandemic didn’t allow for a traditional ceremony, thankfully, the Agricultural Relations Council (ARC) was still able to move forward and recognize those in ag public relations in a new way. Unlike most years where the Golden ARC Awards are given out during an annual conference, ARC held a virtual awards ceremony on July 23, 2020, via Zoom – our favorite!

Virtual Golden Arc Awards Ceremony

“2019 was a great year for work in ag PR, and the number of entries is proof of that. The deadline for entries hit right when people were transitioning to working from home due to the pandemic, but that didn’t stop our members from wanting to show off their hard work,” said ARC Executive Director Kristy Mach. “The important work communicating agriculture’s story continues, and we see the pay off during these times as more people are cooking at home and connecting to the important role agriculture plays in their daily lives.”
