Anntoine Marketing + Design Receives Nine Telly Awards for Creative Excellence
Hammond, LA – May 26, 2023 – The Telly Awards revealed its 44th annual winners on Wednesday, May 23, and one Hammond agency was prominently listed among its roster of honorees. Despite record-breaking competition this year, Anntoine Marketing + Design captured a total of nine Telly Awards across multiple categories of video production, including two coveted Gold Awards: one in Non-Broadcast General - Social Impact for a Child Advocacy Services production entitled “Be the Light in a Child’s Life”, and another in Branded Content Craft - Lighting for “Fire and Ice”, a video advertisement for Mandeville-based health spa bēon.
Founded in 1979, the Telly Awards is the world’s largest honor for video and television production across all screens. This year’s edition of the Telly Awards, “Breaking Through the Static”, received nearly 13,000 entries from across the globe as prestigious global brands and production studies competed alongside independent studios and hometown agencies for distinction.
“We’re incredibly proud right now, even if it feels a little bit surreal,” stated Dusty Cooper, Director of Videography at Anntoine Marketing + Design. “We always commit to going above and beyond to bring our clients’ message to life in a way that honors their story and resonates with their audience, but to have that collaborative vision recognized at this level isn’t an everyday experience for anybody who works in this field.”
In addition to their Gold Awards, Anntoine Marketing + Design secured five Silver Telly Awards for outstanding achievement in creative videography, cinematography, and branded content. Their Silver Award-winning projects include two from Tangipahoa Parish: “Be the Key” for Options, Inc. in the Branded Content General - Social Responsibility category, and Tangipahoa Parish School System’s "Reading Is An Adventure" promotion in the Branded Content General - Social Impact category. Three videos produced for St. Tammany Health System, "Heartbeat of The Community", “We Invest in You”, and “Called to Care”, rounded out their list of Silver Awards.
The agency captured two Bronze Awards for exceptional work in branded content. "Life's Moments" for Heritage Bank of St. Tammany won a Bronze Award in the category of Branded Content General - Business-to-Consumer, and "Heartbeat of the Community" for St. Tammany Health System won Bronze in Branded Content General - Recruitment.
Jessica Smith, who co-founded Anntoine with business partner Eddie Laviolette, said she feels that their team’s embodiment of the agency’s mission have only served to elevate the work they produce. “Our slogan is simple: ‘Make It Possible’. When we’re all united in that effort to stay mindful of our core values and focus on delivering outstanding results for our clients no matter what comes our way, it absolutely shows in our final product. To me, these awards are a concrete representation of the passion and the positivity and the gratitude that we pour into every project, and it’s a tremendous honor to know that others see it, too.”
