Fortress Wins 3 Telly Awards!


We’re Proud to Announce Our 3 New Telly-Award Winning Productions!

We’re thrilled to have won three Telly Awards for our commercial productions – “Imagine” General Admission Spot for Southern Illinois University, “Imagine” Hispanic Latino Spot for Southern Illinois University, and “On Chicago’s Side” for Walner Law.

The Telly Awards, founded in 1979, honor excellence in local and regional broadcast and video commercials across all screens. Each year, the Telly Awards receive 12,000 entries from all 50 states and from 5 continents. We are honored to have been chosen as award recipients in their 43rd year. 

Our commercials for Southern Illinois University – “Imagine” General Admission Spot and “Imagine” Hispanic Latino Spot – were each one of just three winners for the production of Regional TV for a school, college, or university. Additionally, our production of Walner Law’s “On Chicago’s Side” was also just one of three winners for Local TV regarding law and legal services. 

Taking Our Video Production Capabilities to the Next Level

After winning our first Telly Award in 2021 for another Southern Illinois University commercial titled “It’s Our Turn,” we were even more determined to keep up the momentum, producing top-quality commercials for our clients. Winning three more Tellys in 2022 is a testimony to the time and energy put into producing captivating, professional, and visionary videos. 

This is a proud moment for our team. However, the real reward is seeing the positive impact that these commercials have had on our clients’ businesses. As with everything we do, we will continue to improve, advance, and innovate to bring success to our clients. 

Take a look at our production reel which showcases all of our video capabilities, from animation to full-production commercials.

In addition to video production, Fortress also specializes in the placement of commercials on broadcast, cable, and OTT.
