Villa Maria College’s Villa is WHERE television commercial was recognized nationally twice this month, earning both a Telly Award and an A001_L009_04158G.0000267Educational Advertising Award.

Villa’s commercial was awarded a silver Telly Award in the Schools/Colleges/Universities category and a bronze Educational Advertising Award in the TV Single category.

This commercial being recognized is particularly exciting as it features our students and faculty,” said Brian Emerson, Villa’s Vice President of Enrollment Management and Student Services. “Our goal in creating it was to show that Villa is more than just an education institution. At Villa, students can learn, grow, and create, all of which assists them both inside the classroom and after graduation. All of this was conveyed in our ‘Villa is WHERE’ commercial, and we hope it will speak to high school students in the Western New York area, too.”

The Telly Awards honor excellence in local, regional and cable TV commercials. The 36th Annual Telly Awards received over 13,000 entries from all 50 states and 5 continents.

The Educational Advertising Awards judge the creativity, marketing execution and message impact of collegiate advertising. Hosted by the Educational Advertising Award, they are the largest educational advertising award competition in the country. This year, they received over 2000 entries from 1000 colleges, universities and secondary schools from all 50 states and several foreign countries.
