Founded in 1979, the Telly Awards is the premier award honoring outstanding local, regional, and cable TV commercials and programs, the finest film and video production, and groundbreaking web commercials, videos, and films. A prestigious judging panel of more than 40 accomplished industry professionals, each a past winner of a Telly Award, judge the competition to uphold the highest standard of excellence.

Winners represent the best work of the most respected advertising agencies, production companies, television stations, cable operators, and corporate video departments in the world.
