MIAMI, FL (August 8, 2014) — Interval International, a prominent worldwide provider of vacation services and an operating business of Interval Leisure Group (Nasdaq: IILG), has been honored with a distinguished Telly Award, an international recognition of groundbreaking film and video productions, for its video “Real Members. Real Stories,” on the Interval website. Telly winners represent the best work from respected advertising agencies, production companies, television stations, cable operators, and corporate video departments worldwide. The winning video featuring a series of testimonials was produced in conjunction with Mountain View Group, a strategic creative communications agency.
“The key message is that these are Interval International members, many of them long-standing, sharing personal stories about enjoying their vacation ownership and membership,” said Jan Wyatt, vice president of corporate marketing at Interval International. “Simply put, the authenticity of their stories is what makes this video so compelling.”
“We are thrilled to be a part of such a significant achievement,” said Simon Umlauf, producer at Mountain View Group. “This is one of the industry’s most widely-respected awards, recognizing the top creative entries from around the world.”
This year’s winners, which in addition to Interval include Disney, Coca-Cola, Showtime Networks, ESPN, and Warner Brothers, were chosen from more than 12,000 entries by judges consisting of highly-qualified advertising, production, and other creative professionals.
The Telly is one of several major recognitions Interval has received for cutting-edge marketing campaigns and technological innovations. Earlier in the year, Interval was honored with a gold Spotlight Award from the League of American Communications Professionals and a platinum MarCom Award from the Association for Marketing and Communications Professionals. In 2013, Interval earned a gold Pixie Award from the American Pixel Academy for its use of animation, in addition to a series of awards from the Hospitality Sales and Marketing Association (HSMAI) for its digital marketing tools and colorful product brochures.
Available in English, Spanish, and Portuguese on IntervalWorld.com, the award-winning video is just one of many resources on the site for consumers seeking to learn about the benefits of vacation ownership and Interval membership.
