Florida Sport Fishing TV Wins Two Telly Awards


(Jun. 20, 2012 - Lighthouse Point, FL)

The Telly Awards has named Florida Sport Fishing TV as a Bronze winner in the 33rd Annual Telly Awards for two episodes from its inaugural season in 2011, Super Snook & Breakfast Broadbills. With nearly 11,000 entries from all 50 states and numerous countries, this is truly an honor.

The Telly Awards was founded in 1979 and is the premier award honoring outstanding cable TV commercials and programs, the finest video and film productions, and online commercials, video and films. Winners represent the best work of the most respected advertising agencies, production companies, television stations, cable operators, and corporate video departments in the world.

For its 33rd season, The Telly Awards once again joined forces with YouTube to give the public the power to view and rate videos submitted as part of the People's Telly Awards. In addition to recognition from the Silver Telly Council, the Internet community helps decide the People's Telly Awards winners.

A prestigious judging panel of over 500 accomplished industry professionals, each a past winner of a Silver Telly and a member of The Silver Telly Council, judged the competition, upholding the historical standard of excellence that Telly represents. The Silver Council evaluated entries to recognize distinction in creative work - entries do not compete against each other - rather entries are judged against a high standard of merit. Less than 10% of entries are chosen as Winners.

"The Telly Awards has a mission to honor the very best in film and video," said Linda Day, Executive Director of the Telly Awards. Florida Sport Fishing TV's accomplishment illustrates their creativity, skill, and dedication to their craft and serves as a testament to great film and video production."

"Our crew couldn't be more proud of this achievement. It's a thrill to see our hard work and dedication paying off," mentioned Capt. Mike Genoun, host of the series.
