Telly Award

The purpose of the award is to honor the very best local, regional, and cable television commercials and programs, as well as the finest video and film productions, and work created for the Web. The award was founded in 1978 by David E. Carter. Entries are self-nominated with approximately 11,000 submissions per year as of 2010, and the awards are judged by past award winners. There is no set limit to the number of winners each year, but the total numbers in the thousands. The statue prizes are paid for by the winners using engraved information chosen by the recipient.
