The Barnes Agency received 16 Tellys at the 35th annual Telly Awards earlier this year.

The full-service advertising, marketing, and public relations firm located in Hurricane and Huntington, competed against agencies from all over the country to bring the awards home to West Virginia.

“We are extremely honored and humbled to have been chosen to receive this amazing number of Telly Awards for our video and film production body of work,” said Jeffrey Barnes, president and CEO. “It’s a reflection of both our creative capabilities and the quality of production we demand of ourselves for every client regardless of budget.”

The Telly Awards generate millions of impressions in national and local media, with less than 10 percent of entries chosen as winners of the Silver Telly and 25 percent as winners of the Bronze Telly.
