The Telly Awards competition was founded in 1979 and is the premier award honoring outstanding TV commercials and programs, the finest video and film productions, and online commercials, video and films. Winners represent the best work of the most respected marketing organizations, production companies, television stations, cable operators, and corporate video departments in the world.

For its 34th season, The Telly Awards once again joined forces with YouTube to give the public the power to view and rate videos submitted as part of the People’s Telly Awards. In addition to the judging panel that selects the Telly Awards winners, the Internet community helps decide the People’s Telly Awards winners.

A prestigious judging panel of over 500 accomplished industry professionals, each a past winner of a Telly and a member of The Silver Telly Council, judged the competition, upholding the historical standard of excellence that Telly represents. The panel evaluated entries to recognize distinction in creative work – entries do not compete against each other – rather entries are judged against a high standard of merit.

“The Telly Awards has a mission to honor the very best in film and video,” said Linda Day, Executive Director of the Telly Awards. “Sage Age Strategies accomplishments illustrate their creativity, skill, and dedication to their craft and serves as a testament to great film and video production.”
