    SSDM Celebrates Telly Award Recognition

    Contact info: Laura Oliveto | SSDM | | 248.993.0229

    July 30, 2021, Troy MI -- SSDM, the premier digital marketing agency, is celebrating its third Telly Award in as many years. The Bronze Telly was awarded to the agency in the category of Non-Broadcast/Non-Profit for its short documentary for Volunteers of America (VOA) Illinois. The Telly Awards honor excellence in video and television across all screens.

    VOA Illinois collaborated with SSDM to create a short film to tell a powerful story about the programs they offer their community, so donors can understand the full effect of their support. “Katrina’s Story” was produced to thank VOA donors at a golf outing and fundraising event. It portrays the Army National Guard veteran’s journey from life on the streets to employment by the VOA to help others who are coping with life’s struggles. VOA Illinois provides child welfare services, veterans’ services and housing assistance.

    SSDM creative director and partner, Michael J. Taylor II notes that these sorts of projects are most gratifying because they provide SSDM the opportunity to tell stories about people whose lives were changed forever. “The fact that Katrina was once a recipient of services, and now helps others find hope in those same programs, speaks volumes about the impact VOA Illinois has on those in need,” says Taylor.

    Nancy Hughes Moyer, VOA Illinois CEO, says, “Katrina’s story is especially powerful because she so thoroughly embraced the VOA services during her time of need and now, as she advocates for others as part of the organization, her success story is such an inspiration.”

    In 2021, in addition to the Telly Award, SSDM was a finalist this year for two Global Agency awards: one for Best Social Media Campaign for Dynfly, a pop-in-pop-out hair-color bar, and one for Digital Agency of the Year, and is a U.S. Search Awards finalist for Best Use of Content Marketing for HR PEO client, EmPower HR.
