Columbus, Mississippi – Tellos Creative and the Golden Triangle Development LINK recently won a Telly award for their video “Dynasty.”   The award category was Recruitment Videos.  This video features the LINK staff in football and coaches’ uniforms preparing to compete.  Interspersed within that framework are shots from four of the Golden Triangle’s largest industries – Yokohama Tire, Airbus Helicopters, Steel Dynamics and PACCAR.  These industries were highlighted as championship “wins” for the economic development agency.
