That’s Right, 3 Telly Awards

ADsmith is Awarded With 3 Telly Awards

ADsmith has always worked to provide quality work for our clients, but in the last 18 months, our video team has steadily raised the bar.

We often remind our clients to publicize their accomplishments – because if you won’t toot your own horn, oftentimes the horn will go untooted. So we’re sharing our excitement and, yes, going a little gaga over our video team, because they have more than earned it.

The Telly Awards, which celebrate their 40th year this year, are to the world of marketing and advertising what the Academy Awards are to the world of cinema. The Telly is the premier award honoring video and television across all screens. Established in 1979, The Telly Awards receives more than 12,000 entries from all 50 states and 5 continents.

Entrants are judged by The Telly Awards Judging Council—an industry body of more than 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.

So, all that to say, the Tellys are a pretty big deal. Each entrant is pitted against other entries in their category from across the country. The competition redefines the word fierce.

Three videos produced by ADsmith Marketing & Advertising were recognized:

iCare, Produced for Harmony House

Gold Telly Winner in Non-Broadcast


The Journey, Produced for Old Missouri Bank

Silver Telly Winner in Promotional Video: Financial Services/Banking


Connecting Our Communities, Produced for Old Missouri Bank

Silver Telly Winner in Local TV: Campaign – Branding

This cannot be stated enough: we are so proud of our video team!

While our goal has always been to provide national-level quality video content to our local clients, the ADsmith Studio has stepped up its game in very noticeable ways over the past couple of years, thanks to strong leadership from the Video Department Manager, Dustin Henderson, and the opportunity to dream big and collaborate with clients.

Great video not only tells a compelling story, but can be the key difference in converting a potential customer to a sold customer.

So where do we go from here? We’ll keep making awesome videos for awesome clients. And if you’re in the market for phenomenal video content, give us a call. We love telling visual stories and we’d be happy to help you tell yours.
