Telly double-down for 15º and CCBQ


New York, NY [Friday, June 15, 2012] – The Telly Awards has named Fifteen Degrees as a two-time winner in the 33rd Annual Telly Awards for their video Preserving Dignity. With nearly 11,000 entries from all 50 states and numerous countries, this is truly an honor.

Wanting to create an emotional piece that captures the true spirit of their organization and the people they help, Catholic Charities Brooklyn and Queens (CCBQ) turned to Fifteen Degrees to create and produce a video for use at events and online. The result was a 3-minute video that brought to life the individual stories of seven CCBQ clients in a compelling and memorable way.

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. A prestigious judging panel of over 500 accomplished industry professionals judged the competition, each one a former winner, upholding the historical standard of excellence that Telly represents.

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