College’s marketing projects earn national recognition

Seminole State's award-winning Go State. Go Far. commercial

Seminole State College of Florida has won two national awards for marketing projects in the 35th annual Telly Awards.

The projects earned second-place Bronze Tellys (There are no Gold awards.) in two categories:

  • “Go State. Go Far.” –  Local TV and Local Cable - Schools/Colleges/Universities
  • “Dreams” – Internet/Online Programs, Segments, or Promotional Pieces - Fundraising

The Telly Awards honor the best in film and video production, online video content and local, regional and cable television commercials and programs. More than 12,000 entries nationwide and across five continents were submitted this year.

Staff from the creative services team in College Relations and Marketing created, designed and produced the projects. The “Dreams” video debuted at the 30 Annual Dream Gala, the biggest fundraiser for the Foundation for Seminole State College. The winning “Go State. Go Far.” commercial was produced entirely in-house and features Seminole State students.

Although multiple Silver and Bronze Telly Awards are given each year, the entries do not compete against each other but are judged according to their merit and rated on a 10-point scale. Entries given an average score of 7.0 to 8.9 from the Silver Telly Council, the judging panel of nearly 500 industry professionals who have previously won Silver Tellys, are awarded a Bronze Telly for outstanding achievement.
