MCAA Mental Health Video Honored with Prestigious Telly Award

June 13, 2024

MCAA’s 2023 film on Mental Health Awareness and Suicide Prevention has been selected as a winner of a highly prestigious Telly Award.

The Telly Awards honor excellence in video and television across all screens. Founded in 1979 to honor local, regional and cable television commercials, with non-broadcast video and television programming added soon after, the award has evolved with the rise of digital video to include branded content, documentary, social media, immersive and more. The Telly Awards today celebrate the best work in the video medium in an exciting new era of the moving image on and offline.

The Telly Awards annually showcases the best work created within television and across video, for all screens. Receiving over 12,000 entries globally from 6 continents and all 50 states, Telly Award winners represent work from some of the most respected advertising agencies, television stations, production companies and publishers from around the world. The Telly Awards recognizes work that has been created on behalf of a client, for a specific brand and/or company (including your own) or self-directed as a creative endeavor.

MCAA launched this video to members in September 2023, and during the course of the next three months had thousands of views. Over that time, many MCAA members suggested releasing the video to the general public, which MCAA did in January 2024. Since then, it has been viewed thousands of times outside construction, being picked up by several media outlets and now recognized by The Telly Awards.

“Our goal to help our industry break the stigma is working. Being selected as a Telly Award winner is not only a great honor, but also helps spread the message to even more workers around the country. MCAA thanks the Telly Awards Judging Council and encourages people in and out of construction to watch this video,” said MCAA President Rick Gopffarth.

The public video can be found at YouTube.com/@MCAAmerica or directly here in English or Spanish.
