Distillery wins again — this time, for a video we made to tell our own story! Annually, the Telly Awards support their self-stated mission of “honoring excellence in video and television across all screens.” Distillery’s short animated promotional video telling the story of our name and logo won a 2018 Bronze Telly Award for “Branded Content” in the sub-category of “Craft — Fully Animated Piece.” It’s a true honor to be recognized in the same category as design luminaries such as Google and PepsiCo Design & Innovation.
Since 1979, the Telly Awards have celebrated the best in video. Over the years, the awards program has evolved alongside the video media it celebrates, moving from a TV-only focus to fully embrace all the different types of screens that now exist in our increasingly digital world. The Telly Awards began with a focus on television commercials, but they quickly expanded their purview to include non-broadcast video and TV programming. In recent years, they further expanded to recognize digital videos. With winners drawn from more than 12,000 entries from five continents and all 50 US states, the awards showcase the best work from many of the world’s most respected TV stations, production companies, advertising agencies, publishers, and other video-producing entities.
Here at Distillery, we’ve long advocated for using video to engage your audience. We’re thrilled that our own video has been judged a worthy effort at engaging ours.
