GIG HARBOR, WA:  Tom Jonez, President of Plumbline Management Corporation, a Gig Harbor based marketing consulting firm, has won a 2011 Telly Award for excellence in creative achievement for “What I Wish I Knew at 18,” a promotional video produced for Dennis Trittin and his new book by the same title. The 5-minute video is a portrayal of Gig Harbor’s Dennis Trittin and his role as father, retired business leader, and author.  It highlights his thinking regarding the book’s value to his teen-age target audience and provides insight for parents, educators, and community leaders who see Trittin’s book as a resource to young adults.  The core content of the book, What I Wish I Knew at 18, consists of practical life-skills advice and is directed to teens as they move from High School and College into the adult work-force. The 2011 Telly Awards competition is the 32nd annual recognition of outstanding local, regional, national and international video and film productions; TV commercials and programs, and Web commercials, videos and films.
