The Rhizome Collaborative is proud to be recognized as a gold award winner in the 15th Annual Gold Davey Awards. With nearly 3,000 entries from across the U.S. and from around the world, the Davey Awards honors the finest creative work from the best small shops, firms, and companies worldwide.
Our entry was for an online video series campaign titled, “Power Through Participation.” The videos were created for the Washington State Council of Fire Fighters as part of their education series for union firefighters. The series of 11 video shorts took almost two years to complete and contain over 20 interviews with both senior and younger members on the subjects of political action, education, community, about unions, health and wellness, and retirement. Our work for the fire fighters in Washington State is always rewarding, but being recognized from other professionals in our industry makes it even sweeter.
Shout outs to director and videographer, Robert J. Pennington, Videographer Ted Grudowski and Video Assistant Adrian Mason. Many thanks to all the staff, board and members at WSCFF and to Ricky Walsh at the IAFF 7th District.
