Telescope Inc. has been named “ Mid-Sized Agency of the Year ” in the 2021 Shorty Awards. Each year the Shorty Awards honors a mid-sized agency (21-100 people) that has "proven, through their winning work, their ability to provide an expert level of creativity, innovation, and effectiveness in the social and digital media space."  We could not be prouder of the work and creativity that went into many of our campaigns throughout 2020. It was a challenging year for many, but our ability to pivot and use our strengths within the interactive and engagement space allowed us to not only survive but thrive.

In addition to the Agency of the Year recognition, Telescope was awarded a number of honors at varying levels. In total, Telescope took home 3 Wins, 2 Gold honors, 1 Silver honor and 9 Audience honors.
