Hammer-Head announced today its video, Shark Girl, earned a Silver Award in General Promotional Video in the 41st Annual Telly Awards. The Telly Awards honors excellence in video and television across all screens and is judged by leaders from video platforms, television, streaming networks, production companies and including Dow Jones, Duplass Brothers Productions, Complex Networks, A&E Networks, Hearst Media, ESPN Films, RYOT, Vice+ and Vimeo.
Shark Girl: An Introduction To The Hammer-Head Pool Cleaning Machine not only completely demonstrates how well the pool cleaner works, but also tells a story about a very friendly pool maintenance technician with a soft spot for sharks.
“Hammer-Head is pushing the boundaries for video and television innovation and creativity at a time when the industry is both rapidly changing and heavily impacted by the current crisis,” said Sabrina Dridje, Managing Director of the Telly Awards. “Our theme for this season, Telly Award Winners Tell Great Stories is a true reflection of the diversity of stories the community is skillfully able to tell. Now, more than ever, do we need to celebrate them and those that bring global stories to our attention. This award is a tribute to the talent and vision of these creators.”
“We are proud of this video and are absolutely thrilled that our in-house production has been recognized by the Telly Awards judging council and stands shoulder-to-shoulder with the work of established production teams from around the globe.” – Dean Dietrich, producer and lead creative for Shark Girl.
Today’s winner’s announcement caps a year-long celebration of creators around the globe and across all screens. Continuing on from the inaugural Film & Video Screening Tour last season, The Telly Awards toured a selection of Telly Award-winning work to London, NYC, Amsterdam, and Toronto, culminating with an online event. This year also saw the continued expansion of new categories further to the awards’ recent initiative to rebuild the honors for the multi-screen era. New categories included serialized Branded Content and expanded Social Video and Immersive & Mixed Reality categories, alongside new categories honoring important work in Social Impact and Diversity & Inclusion.
Last year, The Telly Awards attracted more than 12,000 entries from top video content producers including Adult Swim, the BBC, Condé Nast, Complex Networks, Netflix, Refinery29, RadicalMedia, T Brand Studio, and Ogilvy & Mather.
