The 44th Annual Telly Awards: The Telly Awards Launches 44th Call for Entries by Celebrating the Opportunity for Creativity to Be Bold, Different, and Stand Out with the Theme, “Break Through the Static”.

Short description

The 44th annual Telly Awards, the premier award honoring video and television content across all screens, has been recently announced for entries.

The Telly Awards, the world’s largest award honoring excellence in video and television across all screens, is embracing the idea of standing out above the rest across the creative landscape by launching its 44th annual call for entries with a simple, yet profound call-to-action: “Break Through the Static.”. Regarding the meaning behind the new campaign slogan, The Telly Awards Executive Director Sabrina Dridje explains, “This year’s theme signifies the industry’s evolution by highlighting the great work emerging from the adoption of new skills, tools, and workflows, as well as new ways of thinking. While this has certainly led to exciting developments, it’s also created challenges in distinguishing oneself amidst the surge of output. With this year’s Telly Awards, we want to celebrate creatives who do things their own way and stand out — not blend in.” Expanding on its mission to highlight and honor the efforts of video and television creators who amplify important social issues within the community, The Telly Awards is rolling out more relevant categories including Corporate Social Responsibility and Pro Bono.
The Telly Awards is also recognizing those who have flourished in the ever-changing environment of virtual production by unveiling even more specific Craft categories such as Virtual Art Direction, Use of Motion Capture, and Digital Environments. Documentary and Animation categories will be broken into Long Form, Short Form, and Series to recognize the different approaches these formats require.

This year Telly Awards introduces new judges from Marvel Studios and Sony Music.
