This spring, Give!, the Independent’s record-breaking philanthropic initiative, celebrates awards from two prestigious media associations for its 2012 and 2013 PSAs aired on FOX21 News.
In February, Give! was selected out of nearly 12,000 entries from all 50 states and five continents to win a Bronze Telly Award for its 2012 Public Service Announcement (watch below). The Tellys honor the very best film and video productions, groundbreaking online video content, and outstanding local, regional and cable TV commercials and programs.
In April, Give! received a Certificate of Merit from the Colorado Broadcasters Association (CBA) for Best Public Service Announcement. This award honors broadcasters’ service to their communities. Give!’s win also recognizes Brian Buck, video editor at FOX21 News, who produced the award-winning 2013 PSA (watch below).
For the past five years of Give!, FOX21 has supported the campaign with weekly coverage and news features on participating nonprofits. These shared awards are a testament to the outstanding partnership between the Give! team and FOX21.
Kudos also go to the Pikes Peak Community Foundation, the fiscal sponsor of Give! since its inception.
