APTA's Advocacy Video Honored

For the second consecutive year, APTA’s Voices for Public Transit (VPT) initiative received a Telly Award, which honors exemplary film and video productions, both online and on television.

This year, the VPT campaign was awarded a bronze award, the second highest honor, in the Government Relations, Online Video category. APTA and its consultant DDC Advocacy won for a grassroots recruitment production titled “Time is Running Out,” which encourages local advocates to take action and tell their congressional leaders to support long-term funding for public transportation during passage of the FAST Act.

The 37th Annual Telly Awards received more than 12,000 entries from organizations ranging from large international firms to local production companies and ad agencies located in all 50 states and across five continents. This year, fewer than 10 percent of entries won a silver award and fewer than 25 percent received a bronze.
