Innovative Advertising Wins National TV Ad Awards

Innovative Scores National TV Ad Awards

Today, Innovative Advertising added to its award-winning profile with three honors in the 39th Annual Telly Awards. All three victories came from Innovative’s work with Essential Federal Credit Union.

For its production of Essential’s Our Progress TV ad, Innovative earned a coveted Silver Telly Award in the General Bank for Local TV category. “Our Progress” introduces Essential’s commitment to addressing food insecurity by discussing the company’s long-standing relationship with the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank. The video specifically highlights the credit union’s commitment of donating 50 meals to the food bank for each new member sign-up.

Innovative took home bronze recognitions for its productions of Essential’s One Idea and Our Home TV ads. “One Idea” also promoted Essential’s new member sign-up food donation campaign. To date, Essential has donated more than 200,000 meals to the food bank. “Our Home” emphasized Essential’s investment in and commitment to the communities it operates in every day by showcasing the daily lives and activities of its customers.

“We always pride ourselves on not just the quality of our work, but the creativity and strategic thinking that goes into it,” Connaughton said. “We have one of the best teams of creative minds in the business, and I am very proud of all of the work they do to tell our clients’ stories in such meaningful and impactful ways. These awards are a great recognition for our team, as well as Essential and all they do for the people of the communities they serve.”
