WASHINGTON – PAAIA was recently honored with a Telly Award for an advertisement produced with Savannah Communications, advocating for diplomatic efforts and the Iran Nuclear Agreement.
The advertisement was released as part of a national communications campaign in July 2015 to lend support for President Obama’s diplomatic efforts in creating a nuclear deal with Iran. The purpose of the campaign was to ensure that the general public, lawmakers and opinion makers became better aware of the Iranian American community’s broad support for the nuclear accord reached between international powers and Iran.
The video that won the Telly Award, “Support Peace”, is a short video discussing the hostility and anger that can be produced through isolation. It continues to promote that the nuclear agreement with Iran will encourage reform inside Iran and peace throughout the region. The advertisement reiterates the hope that – in the wake of an agreement – life in general will improve for the 80 million people of Iran.
The Telly Awards honors the “finest film and video productions, groundbreaking web commercials, videos and films, and outstanding local, regional, and cable TV commercials and programs.”
