Simantel Videos Win Big

The verdict is in: Amid 12,000 entries from all 50 states and five continents, we’re proud to announce we won two Bronze Telly Awards for our video work. Check them out below.

We were also awarded one of the only two gold awards in the non-broadcast general charitable category.

BRONZE WINNER: Turning Challenges Into Opportunities

Online Series-Webseries Corporate Image Category

Cat® Connect Technology and Services offers businesses an intelligent suite of hardware, software and dealer services that customers can purchase to help them run a more profitable operation.

Simantel created a campaign with the concept of “Visionaries” and produced a series of four videos highlighting current Cat Connect Technology customers. The campaign helped businesses discover how Cat Connect Technology can boost efficiency, improve safety, save time and money—or all of the above. The videos appeared on Cat Connect social media channels, YouTube and website.

BRONZE WINNER: A Humorous Take on Product Demand

Non-Broadcast General Sales Category

Simantel was approached by the Cat® Filters team to develop an awareness campaign to educate customers on the value of using Cat Filters in their Cat equipment. The initial campaign introduced two characters, Stan and Carl, who were being “haunted” by their Cat machines because they didn’t use Cat Filters.

When it was time to refresh the campaign and create a new video, Stan and Carl were reintroduced with a humorous take on showing the value of Cat Filters through a “Filter Fight” concept. The video takes place at a Cat dealership where Stan and Carl notice there’s only one Cat Filter left and go to great lengths to take home the prize. The full-length video currently lives on the Cat Filters landing page, and shorter teaser clips were previously used for promotion in their media campaign.

GOLD WINNER: A Vision for Autism

Non-broadcast General Charitable Category

Easterseals of Central Illinois had a vision of offering a comprehensive care model for autism so families can have a seamless experience when navigating what can be an overwhelming and often complex process.

Simantel is one of the only two gold winners in this category.
