Alaska Communications Systems Group, Inc. (“ACS”) (NASDAQ:ALSK) today announced it won two Telly Awards for its advertising efforts.
Founded in 1978, the Telly Awards honor excellence in local, regional and cable TV commercials. Non-broadcast video and TV program categories were later added. With over 200 categories, the Telly is one of the most sought-after awards by industry leaders, from large international firms to local production companies and ad agencies.
ACS received Bronze awards for two TV spots that aired in 2007. One spot showcased the Motorola SLVR and was timed for Valentine’s Day; the other featured ACS’ launch of the Motorola Q smartphone. The award categories are Silver, Bronze and Honorable Mention.
“I’m very honored that the creative efforts of my talented team have gained national recognition by the Telly judges. They routinely produce superior work but these awards really validate their achievements,” said Connie Dorman, ACS marketing director.
