Austin, Texas (April 27, 2015)—NTCA–The Rural Broadband Association awarded 31 member companies with the 2015 TeleChoice Awards on April 27 during the PR & Marketing Conference in Austin, Texas.

“The TeleChoice Awards program is a terrific way to recognize and celebrate the work of our members,” said NTCA Chief Executive Officer Shirley Bloomfield. “Telecom marketers are vital in keeping customers informed about technology trends, products, services and initiatives, as well as raising awareness of issues impacting services to their communities.”

The annual awards program honors excellence in member telco public relations and marketing. Entries in six categories—annual reports, complete marketing campaigns, customer newsletters, single-target print publications, websites and local video content—were judged in three divisions based on the number of access lines served by the entrant. Awards also were judged on two production categories: “in-house” and “outsourced.”

Winning entries were on display during the conference and will be showcased in an upcoming issue of Rural Telecom magazine and at the Regional Conferences. The full list of winners and their work is available online.
