Bruce County was recognized for outstanding work in creative marketing and communications with three Hermes Creative Awards in the video category — a Gold for the Grassroots Farm: Choosing to Call Bruce County Home video, a Gold for the Bruce Peninsula EcoAdventures: Choosing to Call Bruce County Home video and a Platinum for the Welcome Home video.
Together, the videos inform, educate, and generate awareness about Bruce County’s innovative entrepreneurs in energy, agriculture, and sustainable tourism.

The videos, created in partnership with video production company Astrodog Media, promote Bruce County as a place to live, visit and do business.
“Bruce County economic development staff work tirelessly to ensure Bruce County’s future is bright,” says Bruce County Warden Mitch Twolan. “It’s an honour that their efforts — and the quality of their work — have been recognized on the international stage.”
