About the Telly Awards

Recognizing excellence throughout the film, video and television industry, the Telly Award is one of the most sought-after honors for traditional and emerging forms of video production.
To build on the excitement surrounding the Hall of Fame event, Telly Awards is hosting a Twitter contest in which contestants submit a one minute or less video telling why they should be selected to attend the NAB Show. Winners will receive airfare to the 2010 NAB Show, two conference passes and two invitations to the Telly Awards Hall of Fame induction ceremony.
