Washington — The Fuller Project has won a Gold Telly Award in the branded-content, general not-for-profit category for its Behind-the-Scenes with The Fuller Project Impact Video.
The Telly Awards is the premier award honoring video and television across all screens. Established in 1979, The Telly Awards receives over 12,000 entries from all 50 states and 5 continents. Entrants are judged by The Telly Awards Judging Council—an industry body of over 200 leading experts including advertising agencies, production companies, and major television networks, reflective of the multi-screen industry The Telly Awards celebrates.
The behind-the-scenes impact video featured five Fuller Project reporters and editors, and showcased the detailed reporting and impact of their stories, ranging from child marriage in Bangladesh to domestic workers trapped in the Gulf during COVID-19. This project was spearheaded by The Fuller Project’s communications team and independent video director, Abbie Steckler, who helped produce, research and edit the video.
“In the face of a year like no other, the visual storytelling community has continued to defy the limitations of our new world. 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”, says Telly Awards Executive Director Sabrina Dridje. “This year’s submissions doubled down on what we already know about the industry. Creativity cannot be stopped. Collaboration will always prevail. New ideas and stories will always find a way to break through to an audience.”
