ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Albany-Dougherty Economic Development Commission is preparing to release a new marketing video.     

Interim President Justin Strickland says the "We Are Albany," online video released in October was well-received.  It even won a couple of awards in an international digital video competition.     

Strickland says the new video will highlight the area's manufacturers.

"We think Albany is a great place and we want more people to feel like that.  So what we're trying to do is highlight the positive things that happen in Albany and Dougherty County.  We're trying to change the perceptions of Albany," said Strickland.       

The video will be released April 15th as part of the EDC's mixed marketing and community outreach efforts to attract new industries to Albany.
