The 43rd Annual Telly Awards Competition

The Telly Awards, the world’s largest award honoring excellence in video and television across all screens, is celebrating a reinvigorated content creation community and the power of storytelling by kicking off its 43rd annual call for entries.

The 2021 season rolls out a brand new theme, entitled “A New POV”, which celebrates the return of the video and television community to a transformed world. This is reflected in the new editorial-driven categories, including Workplace Culture, Hybrid Events and Sustainability, and expanded categories reflecting new production techniques: Remote Production, Virtual Events, Animation and D&I and Social Impact.

The Telly Awards annually showcases the best work created within television and across video, for all screens. Receiving over 12,000 entries from all 50 states and 5 continents, Telly Award winners represent work from some of the most respected advertising agencies, television stations, production companies and publishers from around the world. The Telly Awards recognizes work that has been created on the behalf of a client, for a specific brand and/or company (including your own) or self-directed as a creative endeavor.

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.
