RCTV is proud to announce that we were awarded not one, not two, but THREE Telly Awards for our video work over the last year!
"Clarissa Uprooted," an RCTV documentary produced in partnership with Teen Empowerment and the Clarissa Street Reunion Committee, won a Silver Telly in the category of Non-Broadcast Documentary. RCTV also won a Bronze Telly for the COVID-19 PSA "We Care We Dare" and "Frederick Douglass Airport Statue Project."
The Telly Awards were founded in 1979 to honor excellence in video and television across all screens. This year, Telly received a 15% increasing in submissions over the previous year. Submissions were judged by media professionals from companies such as WarnerMedia, NBC News, among many others.
“In the face of a year like no other, the visual storytelling community has continued to defy the limitations of our new world," said Telly Awards Executive Director Sabrin Dridje.
"Achievements have been both societal, such as embracing social media platforms to raise awareness about injustices and promote solidarity for movements, as well as geographical, like developing fully remote pipelines for dispersed teams.”
