Epson Wins Seven Telly Awards for Excellence in Video Production
Epson America has been awarded seven 2019 Telly Awards for several of its videos on professional printing and projection, including an award for its Epson Print Academy YouTube channel in the “Online: Webseries: Non-Scripted” category. Introduced last year, this new YouTube channel features educational and inspirational content designed for professional photographers and advanced amateurs using Epson Professional Imaging products. The Telly Awards honors excellence in video and television across all screens and is judged by leaders from video platforms, television, streaming networks, production companies and including Vice, Vimeo, Hearst Digital Media, BuzzFeed, and A&E Networks.
“All of our winning videos have two central elements – Epson’s leadership in creative professional markets and the trust creative professionals have in how they are featured in Epson branded content,” said Dan (Dano) Steinhardt, marketing manager, Epson America. “We produce the highest quality videos in keeping with our industry leadership, and it’s an honor to receive seven Telly Awards that acknowledges our commitment to creative markets and our reputation in the creative professional community.”
Throughout 2018-2019, the Telly Awards celebrated four decades of honoring the video and television industry, whether through its inaugural international screening series or its online video interviews with industry experts. This year also saw the continued expansion of new categories further to the awards’ recent initiative to rebuild the honors for the multi-screen era, including serialized Branded Content and expanded Social Video categories. Winners of the 40th Annual Telly Awards were selected from over 12,000 entries from all 50 states and five continents.
“Epson is pushing the boundaries for video and television innovation and creativity at a time when the industry is rapidly changing,” said Sabrina Dridje, managing director of the Telly Awards. “These awards are a tribute to the talent and vision of its creators and a celebration of the diversity of work being made today for all screens.”
