Anaheim/Orange County Visitor & Convention Bureau Wins Four Telly Awards

ANAHEIM, Calif. (April 23, 2013) – The Anaheim/Orange County Visitor & Convention Bureau (AOCVCB) is proud to announce that it has won four Telly Awards for its Grand Plaza video, Explore the Possibilities.

The Explore the Possibilities video highlights the design and purpose of the Anaheim Convention Center’s latest outdoor expansion, the Grand Plaza. The video won silver for Direct Marketing and Bronze in the Travel/Tourism, Use of Graphics and Visual Effects categories.

“We are very pleased that our organization has won this prestigious award,” said Jay Burress, president and CEO, Anaheim/Orange County Visitor & Convention Bureau. “The Grand Plaza video showcases our newest development in a very creative and informative way. We are very proud of this effort and how it has been received.”

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 judging panel of more than 500 accomplished industry professionals, each a past winner of a Silver Telly and a member of The Silver Telly Council, judged the competition. 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, the 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. “The Anaheim/Orange County Visitor & Convention Bureau’s accomplishment illustrates their creativity, skill, and dedication to their craft and serves as a testament to great film and video production.”
