The 2020 Feed Palm Coast Distribution Day video was created by the Communications and Marketing team in May of 2020. It highlighted the remarkable effort of the City of Palm Coast staff, community partners and residents who donated to the City’s food drive - in partnership with Parkview Church - to help those in need during the COVID-19 pandemic. The video’s imagery and storytelling showcased the community spirit of Palm Coast and the overwhelming support for neighbors.

“In the face of a year like no other, the City of Palm Coast has continued to defy the limitations of our new world, in continuing to create compelling and engaging work,” says Telly Awards Executive Director Sabrina Dridje. “This year’s submissions doubled down on what we already know about the industry. Creativity cannot be stopped. Collaboration will always prevail. New ideas and stories will always find a way to break through to an audience.”

Today’s winners announcement caps a year-long celebration of creators defying the limitations by embracing platforms to increase awareness about injustices and promote solidarity for movements, as well as geographical, like developing fully remote pipelines for dispersed teams.
