The General® and Ken Roberts Productions were recognized in the Animation category at the 33rd Annual Telly Awards competition.  We received a Silver Award for ‘Baseball’ and Bronze Awards for ‘Football’ and ‘Snowboard’.  We are very proud of our team for producing such outstanding work!

The Telly Awards is the premier award honoring the finest film and video productions, groundbreaking web commercials, videos and films, and outstanding local, regional, and cable TV commercials and programs.  Their mission is to strengthen the visual arts community by inspiring, promoting and supporting creativity.  The 33rd Annual Telly Awards received over 12,000 entries from all 50 states and 5 continents.  Silver winners are awarded a Silver Telly statuette, the highest honor.  Bronze winners are awarded a bronze statuette.  Awards are designed by the same firm that makes the Oscar® and Emmy®.  All judges are members of the Silver Telly Council.  Judges evaluate entries to recognize distinction in creative work.  Entries do no compete against each other.  Instead, entries 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.  Empowered to uphold the historical standards of the Telly competition, judges may award top honors to more than one entry or no entries in a particular category.
