Winners represent the best work of the most respected advertising agencies, production companies, television stations, cable operators, and corporate video departments in the world.
"We are excited and honored to have two Ruger video productions recognized with Bronze Telly Awards," said Vice President of Sales and Marketing Chris Killoy. "This is great recognition for the shooting sports industry, and we're proud to be creating the caliber of work that earns this type of award. Congratulations to both the Ruger team and our agency Symbolic for producing such excellent work," he concluded.
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.
