NEW YORK, NY 2016 – The Telly Awards has awarded Fighting Monk two Silvers in the 37th Annual Telly Awards for their campaign titled “Reality of Delo.” With over 13,000 entries from all 50 states and numerous countries, this is truly an honor.
The campaign featured television reality stars from Ice Road Trucking, The Deadliest Catch, Gold Rush and other shows to demonstrate the ruggedness of their conditions and how Delo maintains not just their machinery, but their livelihoods.
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.
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. “Fighting Monk’s accomplishment illustrates their creativity, skill, and dedication to their craft and serves as a testament to great film and video production.”
“We’re a young production company, so being recognized alongside the other winners is an incredible honor,” said Erik Proulx, Fighting Monk’s founder and director of the campaign.
