A new video highlighting a few attractions in Pender County was released this week by the Pender County commissioners and tourism office. The video was written, directed and produced by NCA Productions, based out of Wilmington.

“A visit to the Wilmington Business Expo resulted in this professional video,” said Tammy Proctor, director of tourism. “We dropped a business card in a drawing. Pender County Tourism was the grand prize winner of a promotional video.”

Amanda Nangle, the business manager of NCA Productions, notified the tourism office of the prize.

“It was perfect timing,” said Proctor. “We knew we would need a new video for various websites in the coming months.”

Nangle and her staff met with the Pender Tourism staff and representatives from the NC Blueberry Festival to discuss areas of interest.

BURGAW – Pender County recently unveiled a new marketing brand and a new tagline, “Find Your Treasure.”


“Pender County is diverse,” said Randell Woodruff, county manager. “We knew it would be a challenge to find a comprehensive design that included our vast agriculture and coastal lands.”


Ford Design Group, based in Wilmington, created a design that encompassed all of Pender County.


Greg Ford and Foster Barker used the shape of a pin-drop, similar to the drop pins used in mapping software to indicate “this is your destination.” The pin-drop, a carapace of a sea turtle, contains the rich agricultural fields, a bright sun, and the sky is also a wave.
