The votes are in and TransCanada’s Pend Oreille River Video has won a Bronze Telly Award under the Social Responsibility category!
The Telly Awards honor the finest film and video productions, groundbreaking web commercials, videos and films, and outstanding local, regional, and cable TV commercials and programs. In this year’s 35th annual competition there were almost 12,000 entries from across the globe.
The Pend Oreille Video features TransCanada’s Idaho River Project— a unique maintenance project to re-establish riverbed support under a pair of natural gas pipelines that cross the Pend Oreille River in the U.S. Pacific Northwest. The video uses a combination of camera footage and info-graphics to explain how the project was conducted to ensure minimal impact on sensitive lake resources, especially the upstream migration pattern of the bull trout.
According to the Telly Awards website, judges evaluate entries to recognize distinction in creative work — entries do not compete against each other. Instead they are judged against a high standard of merit. Judges score entries on a performance scale and winning entries are recognized and awarded as Silver or Bronze winners based on the combined scoring of the judges who evaluate each entry.
