STARKVILLE, MS (June 2, 2010)—Broadcast Media Group, Inc. of Starkville has won a Telly Award for the commercial “Pick Peppers” produced in 2009.

The commercial was selected from a large group of submitted work from across the United States and around the world. A panel of more than 40 industry professionals judged the national competition.

“Pick Peppers,” was produced for the West Point, MS-based advertising agency Quest Group and their client, Sweet Peppers Franchise Systems, LLC. The 30-second energetic TV 
commercial is currently airing in markets around the southeastern United States.

“The ‘Pick Peppers’ commercial was the most fun video shoot we have experienced. Partnering with Broadcast Media and Quest Group produced a branding commercial that is one of the major factors in increasing our sales,” said Arma delaCruz Salazar, director of marketing for Sweet Peppers.

“The commercial highlights the energetic atmosphere, great food and superior service offered by Sweet Peppers Deli. Their customers had fun attempting the ‘Petey Pepper’ tongue twister — a play on the traditional ‘Peter Piper’ — and the ad shows that,” said Cindy Hodo, partner with Quest Group.
