It has been an amazing spring for the Fireside Production team with several recent wins in highly-respected video production competitions. Judges in the 2013 international Ava Awards competition recognized two of our submissions for exceptional quality. This is the third consecutive year we’ve earned top honors in the Ava Awards.
Fireside earned the highest honor, the Platinum Ava Award, in the Corporate Image category for the video, Mirage in the Desert we produced for Humana. The Platinum Award recognizes the most outstanding submissions for quality, creativity and resourcefulness. Mirage in the Desert captures a community coming together with Humana and its non-profit partners to build a playground in a day – a first for the small, California town of Thermal. The playground build is part of Humana’s mission to inspire lifelong well-being.
Our team also won the Gold in the Event category for the freewheelin video also produced for Humana. Just 17% of all entries are Gold winners.
There’s more… Fireside was honored with twin Telly Awards in this 34th Annual competition for outstanding achievement. Humana’s Mirage in the Desert video received the Bronze Telly in the documentary category.
Fireside earned a second Bronze Telly Award for the video it created for the Colorado School of Mines on the legacy, contribution and future of Women at Mines. This piece was honored in the education category.
This year’s Telly Awards competition drew nearly 11,000 entries from the United States and around the globe. “The Telly Awards has a mission to honor the very best in film and video,” said Linda Day, Executive Director of the Telly Awards. “Fireside Production’s accomplishment illustrates their creativity, skill, and dedication to their craft and serves as a testament to great film and video production.”
We are so grateful for the recognition in both the Telly and the Ava Awards competitions… but more importantly, Fireside Production is truly privileged to capture and convey the extraordinary ways that both Humana and Colorado School of Mines are touching lives.
