The Telly Awards has named Alamogordo as a Bronze winner in the 34th Annual Telly Awards for their piece titled Film Sand & Space. With nearly 11,000 entries from all 50 states and numerous countries, this is truly an honor.

HK Advertising in Santa Fe, New Mexico created the ad for Alamogordo. HK took three key assets that are unique to Alamogordo and developed a very conceptual ad that showcased these assets. Alamogordo known for White Sands National Monument, home to the New Mexico Museum of Space History and more than a hundred locations for Hollywood films, documentaries, music videos, television commercials, independent films, and principal photography shot in and around Alamogordo. The ad was shot in keeping with New Mexico’s brand “New Mexico True.”

“New Mexico True celebrates the beauty, landscape and culture in all of New Mexico and this new tv ad captures that for Alamogordo. It’s ‘Adventure that Feeds the Soul... a True Experience,“ said David Hayduk, President of HK Advertising.

The Telly Awards was founded in 1979 and is the premier award honoring outstanding local, regional, and cable TV commercials and programs, the finest video and film productions, and online commercials, video and films. Winners represent the best work of the most respected advertising agencies, production companies, television stations, cable operators, and corporate video departments in the world.

For its 34th season, The Telly Awards once again joined forces with YouTube to give the public the power to view and rate videos submitted as part of the People’s Telly Awards. In addition to recognition from the Silver Telly Council, the judging panel that selects the Telly Awards winners, the Internet community helps decide the People’s Telly Awards winners.

A prestigious judging panel of over 500 accomplished industry professionals, each a past winner of a Silver Telly and a member of The Silver Telly Council, judged the competition, upholding the historical standard of excellence that Telly represents. The Silver Council evaluated entries to recognize distinction in creative work – entries do not compete against each other – rather entries are judged against a high standard of merit.
