The Telly Awards opens its 41st annual call for entries, offering several exciting new categories that signal the continued growth in creative approaches to the rising digital video production, storytelling, and distribution landscape.
To show its commitment to this creative expansion, The 41st Telly Awards has unveiled its new suite of Immersive & Mixed Reality categories, which embrace media from VR, 360 video, and AR. Along with new Social Impact categories, the awards will also introduce an expansion of its Diversity & Inclusion categories.
Telly Awards entries will be evaluated by members of The Award Judging Council drawn from a diverse mix of advertising, media, tech, and video industry leaders. The awards will be anchored by the second installment of the Telly Awards’ video and film screening series – taking place in New York, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Toronto, Berlin, London, and Amsterdam.
Founded in 1979 to honor commercials made for cable and local TV, The Telly Awards has continually refreshed its categories to honor the evolving, broad range of work being made — including branded content, social video, and animation — working with industry experts to identify categories where new platforms play an increasingly important role in the ways stories are being told.
As a result, last year, The Telly Awards received over 12,000 entries – a 10% increase from the previous year – from top video content producers including Viacom, Google, Condé Nast, CBS Interactive, and Verizon.
