Founded in 1979, the Telly Awards annually highlights the best work created within television and across video for all screens with more than 12,000 entries from all 50 state and 5 continents. Telly Award winners represent work from some of the most respected advertising agencies, television stations, production companies, and publishers from around the world created on the behalf of a client, for a specific brand and/or company (including your own), or self-directed as a creative endeavor.
“We are thrilled by the momentum and reach this litter prevention campaign has had,” said Lieutenant Governor Billy Nungesser. “If we all Let Louisiana Shine, we will see a cleaner, greener Sportsman’s Paradise.”
The “Let Louisiana Shine” campaign continues to run with a new commercial conveying ways Louisiana residents can prevent litter:
- Bag your trash, tie the bag tight, and cover your bin to prevent trash from entering the environment and harming wildlife.
- Keep a bag in your vehicle for garbage and dispose of your trash properly.
- Check the bed of your truck to ensure it is free of trash and debris that could fly out and become litter.
- When transporting large items, secure your load with tarps, nets, or tie-downs.
- Whether you are hiking or boating, keep a bag with you for trash.
“This campaign is important to illustrate how litter hurts our wildlife, our environment, our neighborhoods, and our quality of life,” said KLB Executive Director Susan Russell. “We all must work together to keep litter out of Louisiana and create a better place for our children and future generations to call home.”
Red Six Media in Baton Rouge developed the “Let Louisiana Shine” campaign. The 2022 television commercial was also the recipient of a Gold ADDY for cinematography in March 2023 from the American Advertising Federation Baton Rouge Chapter.
