Prime Time Agency wins awards for Gilich campaign ads

The Prime Time Agency, a Gulfport-based political consulting firm, has received local and national awards for the Andrew "FoFo" Gilich -- Mayor for Biloxi campaign.

On the local level, the agency recently won two Addy Awards for copywriting and television commercials for the campaign. The commercials were written by Reed Guice, owner of the Guice Agency, in Biloxi. The commercial titled "I Am Biloxi" and "Right Track" was directed by Peter Petro of CAVU Productions and produced by Prime Time.

On the national level, Prime Time was selected as a Telly Award winner in the Political Issues/Campaign Advertising Category. The commercial titled "Rocket Scientist" was chosen from over 13,000 entries nationally.

The American Association of Political Consultants honored the agency as a winner of the 2016 Pollie Award for political advertising.

"This is a distinguished achievement for our firm, our creative partners and most of all for our client, Mayor Gilich," said Ted Riemann, owner and creative director of The Prime Time Agency.
