Local Creative Collaboration Team Wins National Recognition

B2C telly AwardsThe creative efforts of Member One Federal Credit Union, Motion Adrenaline and B2C Enterprises won two Bronze Awards for the “Loan Reason #__” campaign – for use of animation and overall campaign. SAKinterMedia and B2C Enterprises , along with Motion Adrenaline, Media Frenzy and Brett Winter Lemon Photography won a Silver Award for the “Help Save the Next Girl” campaign during the 2013 Telly Awards.

“The Telly Awards has a mission to honor the very best in film and video,” said Linda Day, executive director of the Telly Awards. “The accomplishments of Member One, Motion Adrenaline, Brett Winter Lemon Photography, SAKinterMedia and B2C Enterprises, illustrate a collaborative creativity, skill, and dedication to their craft and serves as a testament to great film and video production.”

Founded in 1979, The Telly Awards are the premier accolade 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.

With nearly 11,000 entries from all 50 states and numerous countries, this is significant recognition for the Roanoke Valley advertising community. B2C’s three Telly Awards were the only ones distributed in Southwestern Virginia.

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 the 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 (their highest honor.) Approximately 25% of entries are chosen as Winners of the Bronze Telly.

 “We are so privileged to work in a market with such creative talent,” said Bruce C. Bryan, B2C president. “It’s the collaboration with incredible partners such as SAKinterMedia, Motion Adrenaline, MediaFrenzy and Brett Winter Lemon Photography that drives this type of work. You also have to have clients – like Member One FCU and “Help Save the Next Girl” – who are open to taking chances and in fact even stretch your own team to perform at an even higher level.”
