UWG Wins Prestigious Telly Award for its TV Commercials

Friday, March 11, 2011

The University of West Georgia is proud to announce that it has been honored with a prestigious Telly Award for its “Go West” branded television commercials.

The Telly Awards are the premier honors for outstanding local, regional and national TV commercials and programs. The widely known and highly respected competition draws more than 11,000 entries annually from all 50 states and many foreign countries. UWG was chosen for a bronze Telly in the “Local TV Campaign Not-for-Profit” category. The Tellys consist only of silver and bronze awards in each category.

UWG launched its Go West branding campaign in the fall, with billboards, print media and radio advertisements and a website, in addition to the TV commercials.

The Telly honor follows a Best of Show ranking UWG garnered for its branding campaign in the coveted Educational Advertising Awards national competition last month. That award was given to just 17 institutions nationally, among more than 1,000 that submitted more than 2,500 entries.
