WEST POINT, MS – The Telly Awards has named Mossy Oak as a Bronze winner in the 33rd Annual Telly Awards for their commercial titled Hometown. With nearly 11,000 entries from all 50 states and numerous countries, this is truly an honor.
Mossy Oak was founded in West Point, Miss., in 1986 and its corporate headquarters are still located there today. Hometown pays homage to the small Southern town and how it is indicative of the Mossy Oak lifestyle. Local landmarks and businesses are featured in the commercial helping to tell the everyday story of Mossy Oak and its place in the town where it all started.
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. “Mossy Oak’s accomplishment illustrates their creativity, skill, and dedication to their craft and serves as a testament to great film and video production.”
