DANVILLE, IN (June 17, 2021) – A Visit Hendricks County video in partnership with Williams Randall Marketing recently won a prestigious award. Our answer to the pandemic, "How To Say It With Your Eyes," won a Bronze in the annual Telly Awards competition, which is the premier national award honoring video and television across all screens.

The one-minute video which was produced last summer and released in the fall amid the COVID-19 pandemic provided a fun, light-hearted approach in encouraging everyone to wear their masks. It supported Visit Hendricks County’s strategic plan to fulfill an unmet community need in a time of crisis as the organization focused on being a resource for the Hendricks County community.

“Our organization followed a vision to be a place for good news and lighthearted messaging during the pandemic,” said Jaime Bohler Smith, executive director of Visit Hendricks County. “We are very proud that our storytelling was welcomed by the community, and to be honored with an award is very rewarding for our team.”

The video won a bronze in the Craft – Social Media category of The Telly Awards. Honoring TV and video worldwide since 1979, The Telly Awards received more than 12,000 entries from all 50 states and 5 continents. Winners represent work from some of the most respected advertising agencies, television stations, production companies and publishers from around the world. The Telly Awards recognize work created on behalf of a client, for a specific brand and/or company or self-directed as a creative endeavor.
