Vocus Wins National Silver and Bronzes in 35th Annual Telly Awards
Three online videos honored as very best in film by quarter-century old film awards
Vocus, Inc. (NASDAQ: VOCS),a leading provider of cloud-based marketing and public relations software, received three national accolades for groundbreaking online video as part of the 35th Annual Telly Awards. One of the technology company s videos, Inside the Vocus Marketing Suite: How It Works, received the Telly Awards highest honor, the Silver Award.
This year, nearly 12,000 entries from all 50 states and numerous countries were submitted to the Telly Awards.
Vocus accolades include:
- National Silver Award (1st Place) for Visual Effects
- National Bronze Award for Use of Graphics
- National Bronze Award for Business-to-Business
The Silver Award-winning video gives viewers an inside look into one of Vocus flagship products, the Vocus Marketing Suite, graphically illustrating how the platform simplifies marketing and helps to enhance business results. Instead of creating a cut-and-dry video, the winning piece takes an amusing twist, featuring animated scientists running the inner workings of the Marketing Suite.
The Telly Awards has a mission to honor the very best in film and video, said Telly Awards Executive Director Linda Day. Vocus accomplishment illustrates their creativity, skill and dedication to their craft, and serves as a testament to great film and video production.
The Telly Awards was founded in 1979 and is the premier award honoring outstanding local, regional, and cable 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 advertising agencies, production companies, television stations, cable operators and corporate video departments in the world.
A prestigious judging panel of over 500 accomplished industry professionals, each a past winner of a Silver Telly and a member of The Silver Telly Council, judged the competition, upholding the historical standard of excellence that Telly represents. Less than 10 percent of entries are chosen as winners of the Silver Telly, the highest honor. Approximately 25 percent of entries are chosen as winners of the Bronze Telly.
One of our marketing team goals is to deliver innovative, engaging and award-winning work, said Vocus Vice President of Brand & Creative Erin McCahill. We strive to deliver beyond the brief and expectations especially when it comes to visual media. We didn t want to make just another product video. We wanted to bring the Marketing Suite to life and provide our prospects with both information and entertainment. I am very proud of our Telly Award-winning work.
