The 42nd Annual Telly Awards Honors Winners



The Telly Awards, known for being the world’s most significant honor for video and television content on all screens, announced this year’s winners, Jennifer Garner’s “Pretend Cooking Show” series, RadicalMedia’s “Crime Scene: The Vanishing at the Cecil Hotel” documentary series, Partizan’s “Fantastic Voyage” campaign, and many more. In addition, this year’s theme of “Your Stories Defy the Limits” has presented exquisite and technical innovations in direct response to the challenges presented by 2020 and 2021. Further winners range from Netflix, Microsoft, Condé Nast, HBO Latin America, and Nickelodeon to BET Digital, Adobe, Playstation, BBC Global News, and PAPER.

The Telly Awards also proudly named Al Jazeera Media Network as ‘Telly Company of the Year.’ Al Jazeera’s “A Day in Wuhan,” “Stricken Beirut,” and “About Cinema” series beautifully embody the visionary and storytelling efforts the Telly Awards have long supported and shined a spotlight on.

“In the face of a year like no other, the visual storytelling community has continued to defy the limitations of our new world. Achievements have been both societal, such as embracing social media platforms to raise awareness about injustices and promote solidarity for movements, as well as geographical, like developing fully remote pipelines for dispersed teams,” says Telly Awards Executive Director Sabrina Dridje.
