The Wichita Downtown Development Corp. has received merit awards for its work on the ?2P downtown parking campaign and the Tallgrass Film Festival.
The awards were announced Sunday by the International Downtown Association at its 56th annual conference in Fort Worth.
The downtown parking campaign was honored in the group's transportation category, while the film festival was honored in the events and programming category.
The parking campaign was created through a partnership with the city, Wichita Transit, Sedgwick County, Intrust Bank Arena operator SMG and the WDDC.
Howerton and White developed the parking campaign and website, and also developed a mobile site.
The campaign launched in November 2009 before the arena opened to lead patrons to available parking.
The Tallgrass Film Festival will celebrate its eighth year Oct. 22 through 25 in downtown.
