Greteman Group, agency of record for the Kansas State Fair, was awarded a Bronze Telly for the 2014 Kansas State Fair TV commercial.

Telly Award Winners represent the best creative work from the most respected advertising agencies, production companies, television stations, cable operators and corporate video departments in the world. The judging panel consists of accomplished industry professionals, all past winners of a Silver Telly and members of The Silver Telly Council. The organization receives more than 12,000 entries annually.

“The colorful, inviting and zany food illustrations capture your attention and make you crave the novelty and once-a-year-experience the Kansas State Fair provides,” says Sonia Greteman, agency creative director and president.

The campaign creative locks in on the fabulous fair foods, the major entertainment and the madcap midway. The theme communicates a core human need – food – and adds the urgency of not missing a must-attend social event. To view the spot, please visit
