The Telly Awards has named HEC-TV as five times Bronze winner in the 38th Annual Telly Awards!
With more than 13,000 entries from all 50 states and numerous countries, receiving a Telly Award is a tremendous honor, as HEC-TV competed against huge media outlets like Disney and Lifetime.
“The Telly Awards has a mission to honor the very best in film and video,” said Linda Day, Executive Director of the Telly Awards. “HEC-TV’s accomplishment illustrates their creativity, skill, and dedication to their craft and serves as a testament to great film and video production.”
And the winners are:
Brryan Jackson: The AIDS Baby Grows Up – Meet Brryan Jackson, a young man who’s father injected him with the aids virus when he was a baby. Together he and his mom are giving this tragic story a happy ending helping others suffering from HIV.
Good Clean Fun with Nick Offerman – Nick Offerman is a bit of a conundrum. Physically he’s a man’s man; rough, gruff and ready to eat some meat. He regularly wears the scowl made famous by his “Parks and Recreation” character Ron Swanson. But, Offerman will also tell you he’s a “massive sissy” and loves the arts. And yet, this Midwest “ballerina” originally from Minooka, Illinois clearly knows his way around a woodshop, as is demonstrated in his most recent book, Good Clean Fun: Misadventures in Sawdust at Offerman Woodshop. We discuss it all in this interview with Nick Offerman.
Horsehair Pottery – Sandy Schulz has practiced the art of horsehair pottery for many years – a technique she first learned about in her travels to the southwest. After throwing and bisque-firing a raku clay pot, Sandy Schulz heats the pot back up and burns hair from a horse’s tail onto the pot. This ancient Navajo art form originally was used to celebrate the birth of a great horse but now Sandy often uses this art form to honor our beloved equine companions who have passed away.
Resilient Souls Project – The Resilient Souls Project is a powerful photo and literary exhibit celebrating the individual strength of women. This exhibit curated by photographer Cathy Lander-Goldberg explores women’s stories of perseverance through essays written 20 years ago, as well as their present day reflections.
Shellback Iron Works – David Stavron, owner of Shellback Iron Works, has taken the art of furniture making to a whole new level.
“Thank you, our viewers, for supporting St. Louis’ leading producer of education, arts, and cultural programming,” said Dennis Riggs, President of HEC-TV. “We will continue to produce the best of local, national, and international products for your education and entertainment!”
