Shaheen Solomon Wins 2024 Communicator Award for General-Political Film and Video

Shaheen Solomon, founder and managing partner of SOLOmedia Communications, has clinched the 2024 Communicator Awards Distinction in the General-Political category for Film and Video. This recognition, for the masterfully produced "Franklin Campaign Launch Video," adds another accolade to Solomon's growing list of achievements, marking his second major award in the public relations, marketing, and communications field this year.

The award-winning video has catapulted Commissioner Felicia Franklin into the limelight as the frontrunner for the Chairwoman of the Clayton County Board of Commissioners in the 2024 elections. Filmed across various key locations in Clayton County, Georgia, the video uniquely spotlights the region's initiatives and achievements under Commissioner Franklin’s tenure. Unlike traditional campaign videos, it features Franklin primarily from behind, symbolizing her journey past the milestones she has championed towards a promising future for the county. Her compelling narrative, voiced over by Solomon, adds a personal touch that resonates with viewers.

The climax of the video on a local tennis court not only highlights community amenities but also metaphorically represents the 'game of life,' culminating in Franklin facing the camera with a heartfelt appeal for support. This creative decision powerfully punctuates her commitment to community engagement and development.

The Communicator Awards, celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, is recognized as the largest and most competitive awards program honoring creative excellence for communications professionals globally. With over 3,000 entries from across the United States and around the world, the competition highlights the best in advertising, corporate communications, public relations, and design.

This year's top honorees included industry giants such as Disney, Mastercard, and IBM, placing Solomon and SOLOmedia Communications among the elite. The awards are judged by the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts (AIVA), an invitation-only group comprising professionals from leading media, advertising, and marketing firms like Spotify, Disney, and Accenture Song.

Shaheen Solomon’s latest achievement not only underscores his expertise in the field of political communications but also reinforces SOLOmedia Communications' standing as a powerhouse capable of producing impactful, award-winning content. As Solomon continues to redefine the standards of political campaign videos, the communications world watches eagerly to see what he will achieve next.
