Washington, DC – April 27, 2016 – The Telly Awards has named Gallaudet University as a Bronze winner in the 37th Annual Telly Awards for their piece titled 60 Years of Gallaudet Dance Company. With over 13,000 entries from all 50 states and numerous countries, this is truly an honor. 

60 Years of Gallaudet Dance Company showcased the Gallaudet Dance Company’s historical commitment to dance and the arts! View the video here.

The Telly Awards was founded in 1979 and is the premier award honoring outstanding local, regional, and cable TV commercials and programs, the finest video and film productions, and online commercials, video and films.  Winners represent the best work of the most respected advertising agencies, production companies, television stations, cable operators, and corporate video departments in the world.

For its 37th season, The Telly Awards will once again give the public the power to view and rate videos submitted as part of the People’s Telly Awards.  In addition to recognition from the Silver Telly Council, the judging panel that selects the Telly Awards winners, the Internet community helps decide the People’s Telly Awards winners.

A prestigious judging panel of over 500 accomplished industry professionals, each a past winner of a Silver Telly and a member of The Silver Telly Council, judged the competition, upholding the historical standard of excellence that Telly represents.  The Silver Council evaluated entries to recognize distinction in creative work – entries do not compete against each other – rather entries are judged against a high standard of merit.  Less than 10% of entries are chosen as Winners of the Silver Telly, our highest honor.  Approximately 25% of entries are chosen as Winners of the Bronze Telly.  

“The Telly Awards has a mission to honor the very best in film and video,” said Linda Day, Executive Director of the Telly Awards.  “Gallaudet University accomplishment illustrates their creativity, skill, and dedication to their craft and serves as a testament to great film and video production.”
