The Telly Awards

Last season, The Telly Awards celebrated the reemergence of our industry into a transformed world, equipped with new tools and A New POV. As we now open the 44th Annual Telly Awards season, we are excited to be celebrating those who use their creativity and ingenuity to Break Through The Static of the ever-increasing ubiquity of video in our lives.

Emerging out of last year’s new point of view were novel skills, increased diversity, and a greater agility across our industry. With the implementation of these skills and creative approaches comes a difficulty to stand out in the media landscape. This is the mission of the 44th Annual Telly Awards: To showcase creativity on all screens that breaks through the static of homogeneity and perhaps even breaks some molds along the way.

After extensive dialogue with our wider community this summer regarding industry shifts and their deployment into new projects, we are thrilled to share this season’s newest developments:

With new paths being forged via the use of Virtual Production in Branded Content and on the big screen, this intersection of physical and digital worlds is generating breakout work. This season sees the introduction of new categories honoring these projects including Digital Environments and Use of Motion Capture

We have heard your requests and will be expanding the Documentary and Animation categories to distinguish between short-form, long-form and series submissions. Visit for a full category breakdown alongside our new CSR, Pro Bono, and Video Journalism options!

The expansion of diversity among the Telly Awards Judging Council continues as we invite a new selection of industry leaders to the fold, which this season includes experts from Marvel, TIME, and Vimeo Experts

We are thrilled to announce a partnership with Green The Bid, an organization leading the charge to establish sustainable commercial production as everyday industry practice. Stay tuned for a number of collaborations with them throughout the season -– we are deeply committed to learning and sharing alongside you and our community at large!

As always, we continue to showcase our winners, judges and critical conversations across our myriad live screening & networking events, The Telly Awards Podcast, and our video series Hot Takes—watch out for new episodes beginning this week!
