Manassas, VA– Amazing Facts Ministries received the 2015 NRB Best Local Broadcast Television Commercial for Revelation: The Bride, The Beast, and Babylon on Tuesday, February 24, at the NRB 2015 International Christian Media Convention in Nashville, TN.
The NRB Award for Best Local Broadcast Television Commercial is presented each year to an organization that successfully creates a commercial that promotes a product or service that is sold by a for-profit business geographically operated within a local broadcast television station’s designated market area (as defined by The Nielsen Company and recognized by the FCC for local market delineation). The commercial should not exceed 30 seconds in length and its intended audience should be consumers who live within, or adjacent to, the televisions station’s designated market area. The commercial should be creative and innovative, and its call to action should be memorable to the local broadcast television audience for which it is intended. Furthermore, the commercial should effectively engage the audience by using the television medium from artistic, technical, and communicative standpoints. In addition, the actual product(s) and/or service(s) promoted in the commercial shall be in keeping with the Christian worldview.
