NTCA-The Rural Broadband Association recognized 33 member companies with the annual TeleChoice Awards during the 2016 PR & Marketing Conference in Charleston, S.C.

The TeleChoice Awards program highlights the marketing efforts of NTCA telecom members. Their efforts keep customers informed about products, services and technology trends, and raise awareness of initiatives and issues impacting communications services in their community.

The annual awards program honors excellence in telecom public relations and marketing. Entries in seven main categories--annual report, complete branding campaign, complete marketing campaign, customer newsletter, local video content, single-target print publication and website--were judged on strategies, design, writing, creativity and other elements. In each category, a winner was selected from three divisions based on the number of access lines served by the entrant and two production divisions: "in-house" and "outsourced."

(A) 1-5,000 ACCESS LINES
