Now, Hanson Hosein, director of the Master of Communication in Digital Media program and host of the TV show, and MCDM Associate Director Scott Macklin, the show’s Executive Producer, can finally add the awards to the MCDM display cabinet.
The Telly Awards are a nationally respected competition for the broadcast industry, honoring outstanding local, regional, and cable TV commercials and programs, as well as the finest video and film productions, and web commercials, videos and films. The field of over 13,000 entries includes work from advertising agencies, production companies, and network TV stations. For the 31st annual awards, three UWTV programs, including the Media Space episode, received recognition. The other two were “Fostering Leadership,” and “Husky Softball: A Championship Journey.”
When Media Space was awarded its Telly in 2011, Hosein commented, “Media Space is our very public effort to connect to what’s next in technology and communication. Elan Lee’s pioneering work in reinventing storytelling clearly foreshadows how we’ll all be interacting with media in the years to come. I’m thrilled that we’ve won this recognition for such cutting-edge subject matter – it’s truly the best of what we do.”
