UNC Asheville's new, 30-second television commercial was recently awarded a 2012 Bronze Telly in the 33rd annual Telly Awards competition. The 30-second spot, titled "Seriously Creative," was entered in the Commercial/Regional TV & Multi-Market Cable – Schools/Colleges/Universities Category. This is the first Telly Award the university has won.
The commercial was produced by UNC Asheville’s Communication and Marketing staff along with Mind Over Media, a Pittsburgh agency. It features UNC Asheville students and faculty, and is part of the university's new branding efforts that show how creative thinking is an inherent part of the UNC Asheville experience.
The Telly Awards, founded in 1979, honor outstanding local, regional, and cable TV commercials and programs as well as video and film productions, and online commercials, video and films. A panel of more than 500 industry professionals judged the competition, which had nearly 11,000 entries in numerous categories from across the U.S. and other countries.
