Telly Awards

Founded in 1979, the Telly Awards is firmly among the premier awards honoring outstanding local, regional, and cable TV commercials and programs, as well as the finest video and film productions, web commercials, videos and films. The Telly Awards annually showcases the best work of the most respected advertising agencies, production companies, television stations, cable operators, and corporate video departments in the world. The Telly Awards is a widely known and highly respected national and international competition and receives over 11,000 entries annually from all 50 states and many foreign countries.

Earning a Telly Award is a significant creative achievement. The judges rate each entry on a 10-point scale. Generally, entries with a score from our judges of 9.0 or higher are awarded a "Silver Telly" statuette, our highest honor. Entries with an average score of 7.0 to 8.9 from our judges are awarded a "Bronze Telly" statuette for outstanding achievement. Entries do not compete against each other. Rather, they compete against a high standard of excellence. Based on the ratio of winners over the past several years, approximately 7 to 10% of entrants are chosen as Silver Telly Award winners. We are very proud of our distinguished winners.
