We won’t lie—we rode the high of last year’s three Telly Award wins all the way into 2020. It was a new accomplishment for us—national recognition for the awesomeness that is our video team. Of course, this also meant a new bar had been set. You know what sounds better than three Telly Awards? Well, more than three Telly Awards.
We knew we had the talent and ability to do it. Our video team has continued pushing the envelope in terms of quality creative work—they were producing amazing stuff and we had the Tellys to prove it (did we mention we won three Telly Awards? Because we did. Win three Telly Awards). So, naturally, we wanted to keep on proving it. Let no one ever call us a one-hit wonder.
So when we got to the end of 2019, we took stock of our library of work, picked out the crème de la crème and sent them off to see if we could make lightning strike twice.
And folks, it struck.
So for the second year in a row, we’re going to fangirl our own video team. Take a bow, boys, you’ve more than earned it.
The Telly Awards, which celebrate their 41st year this year, are to the world of marketing and advertising what the Academy Awards are to the world of cinema.

Entrants are judged by The Telly Awards Judging Council—an industry body of over 200 leading experts including advertising agencies, production companies, and major television networks, reflective of the multiscreen industry The Telly Awards celebrates including executives from Dow Jones, A&E Networks, Hearst Media, ESPN Films, RYOT, Vice+ and Vimeo.
Long standing partners of The Telly Awards include Digiday, NAB, Stash, Storyhunter, Studio Daily, The Wrap. New partners include VR/AR, Production Hub and IFP. Winners are selected for recognition based on excellence in the following areas: Branded Content, Commercials & Marketing, Non-Broadcast, Series / Shows / Segments and Social Video
