TV Telly Award 2016

Ellensburg, WA 03/29/2016 -- The Telly Awards has named as a Silver award winner in the 37th Annual Telly Awards for the site's video titled Online Video Commercial Bike Shop and a Bronze winner for the video titled Online Video The Roost. With over 13,000 entries from all 50 states and numerous countries, this is truly an  honor.

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.

For its 37th season, The Telly Awards will once again give the public the power to view and rate videos submitted as part of the People's Telly Awards. In addition to recognition from the Silver Telly Council, 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 Silver Telly and a member of The Silver Telly Council, judged the competition, upholding the historical standard of excellence that Telly represents. The Silver Council 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. Less than 10% of entries are chosen as

Winners of the Silver Telly, our highest honor. Approximately 25% of entries are chosen as Winners of the Bronze Telly. "The Telly Awards has a mission to honor the very best in film and video," said Linda Day, Executive Director of the Telly Awards. "Clearwater Studios in Partnership with Kittitas County Chamber's Tourism department accomplishment illustrates their creativity, skill, and dedication to their craft and serves as a testament to great film and video production."

"We are truly honored to have the work of Jon Ward in our community. We have partnered with him and his students in projects over the past four years. It is a craft that has helped us show why visitors, locals, many others Make Ellensburg their destination," states Amy McGuffin, Director of Tourism at the Kittitas County Chamber of Commerce.
