ilani wins at 39th Annual Telly Awards, which honor the very best in film & video

RIDGEFIELD, WA. (August 6, 2018) – ilani, the premier gaming, dining, entertainment and meeting destination in the Pacific Northwest, is proud to announce they have been awarded their first Telly award. The Telly Awards are the premier awards honoring the finest in film and video productions, web commercials and local, regional and cable TV commercials and programs.

Let’s ilani

ilani’s Silver award is the highest award possible from the General Travel/Tourism category. The award was earned for its “Let’s ilani” Brand TV Campaign for “Regional Television”. Regional Television is over-the-air TV or cable commercials produced exclusively for a regional audience or multiple markets, meaning ilani achieved this win against nationwide competition, and potential international competitors as The Telly Awards receive entries from around the world. “Let’s ilani” tells the visual story of the ilani experience, representing ilani’s desire to free the spirit by celebrating the moments that fill life with memorable and lasting experiences, said Kara Fox-LaRose, president and general manager of Ilani.


The Telly Awards is the premier award honoring video and television across all screens. Established in 1979, The Telly Awards receives over 12,000 entries from all 50 states and 5 continents. Entrants are judged by The Telly Awards Judging Council—an industry body of over 200 leading experts including advertising agencies, production companies, and major television networks, reflective of the multiscreen industry The Telly Awards celebrates. Partners of The Telly Awards include NAB, StudioDaily, Stash Magazine, and Digiday.
