Capture Florida Video Receives Telly Award!
The FDOT’s Florida Scenic Highways Program has been selected as the winner of a 2010 Bronze Telly Award for its Capture Florida DVD.
The Telly Award is an award presented by the namesake, a New York City-based organization. The purpose of the award is to “honor the very best local, regional, and cable television commercials and programs, as well as the finest video and film productions, and work created for the Web”. This award was founded in 1978.
Each year awards are given in both silver and bronze categories. These awards are given by the body of the academy and are judged by past Silver award winners within the industry. In each category there can be multiple winners (silver) and finalists (bronze). There is no stated limit to the number of winners or finalists in any given category. The entries do not compete against each other, but rather they are judged based upon a “high standard of merit”.
Official documentation indicates that only 7 to 10 percent of over 13,000 international entries receive Silver Telly Awards and 18 to 25 percent receive the Bronze Telly Award.
Production of the video was possible through a FHWA National Scenic Byways Grant. The video was produced by Delve Productions, Inc. out of Orlando, Florida. Nomination for the award was submitted by TranSystems.
