2012 Telly Award
June 8, 2012 – The Telly Awards has named Cynthia Cohen and Allison Lund as winners in the 33rd Annual Telly Awards for their piece titled “Acting Together on the World Stage.” Selected from nearly 13,000 entries from all 50 states and numerous countries, Telly Award is the most well-known and prestigious professional video industry award, this is a tremendous honor for the production team including Theatre Without Borders, Brandeis University’s Peacebuilding and the Arts program, and filmmaker Allison Lund.
The Telly Awards was founded in 1979 and is the premier award honoring outstanding professional video and film productions. Winners represent the best work of the most respected advertising agencies, production companies, television stations, cable operators, and corporate video departments in the world.
“The Telly Awards has a mission to honor the very best in film and video,” said Linda Day, executive director of the Telly Awards. “Cohen and Lund's accomplishment illustrates their creativity, skill, and dedication to their craft and serves as a testament to great film and video production.”A prestigious judging panel of over 500 accomplished industry professionals, comprising the Silver Telly Council (Silver being the highest presented award), judged the competition, upholding the historical standard of excellence that Telly represents. “Acting Together on the World Stage” won a Bronze Telly in the Education category.
