MVRPC Received National TELLY Award for Branding Campaign’s Television Commercials

Dayton, OH - The Miami Valley Regional Planning Commission (MVRPC) recently received a bronze TELLY Award for a branding campaign that included three (3) television commercials which highlighted MVRPC’s primary areas of focus (transportation, environmental and land use planning).

MVRPC’s Executive Director, Brian O. Martin, AICP, commented, “These ads were developed in an effort to educate the public about who we are and what we do. Many of our initiatives impact residents on a daily basis. We want them to become aware of our focus and become engaged in the regional planning process.”

The national TELLY Awards honor the best in TV and cable, digital and streaming, and non-broadcast video productions. On average, the TELLY Awards receive over 13,000 entries yearly from all 50 states and 5 continents. A TELLY is one of the most sought-after awards by industry leaders, from large international firms to local production companies, and ad agencies.

We intend to submit these new ones for a TELLY Award too,” stated Martin.
