Honoring excellence in Video And Television Across All Screens
The industry has changed, and fast. Work is now being made for more platforms, by more companies, and for larger audiences than ever before. The Telly Awards is committed to honoring the cutting edge of innovation in our shifting industry, and providing a way for the best work to stand out from the crowd.
This year marks 40 years of honoring excellence across video and television, which we’re commemorating with this year’s theme: A Story for Every Screen. We’ve grown over forty years—from VHS tapes to urls, from one TV box to multiple screens, but have remained committed to celebrating our vibrant industry’s best work for all screens.
To continue from last year’s dynamic evolution, we’ve added a suite of new categories, new judges, and events, including:
A new suite of honors for Branded Content, Social Video, and—new this year– Live Video
& the inaugural Media Company of the Year Award.
New judges, like David Lennon (VICE), Courtney Coupe (Great Big Story), Justin Durrazo (Droga5)—and more.
