AIKEN, S.C. – Joining well-known entertainment such as Jennifer Garner’s “Pretend Cooking Show” and Nickelodeon, an EM contractor at the Savannah River Site (SRS) has been named a winner in two categories of this year’s Telly Awards.

The Savannah River Nuclear Solutions (SRNS) Communications & Media Services Department won a Gold Telly for “Savannah River Site Overview” in the non-broadcast, corporate image category, and a Bronze Telly for “SRNS Now: September 2020” in the non-broadcast, employee communications category.

“This team — their talent is unparalleled,” SRNS President and CEO Stuart MacVean said. “We rely on their expertise to help us tell our story to the workforce and to the community. Even though the subject matter of SRS missions can sometimes be fairly technical for the average audience, the team continues to produce entertaining, informative, visually appealing, and high-quality videos.”

Founded in 1979, the annual Telly Awards are the world’s largest honor for video and television content across all screens. The program receives more than 12,000 entries from all 50 states and five continents, representing advertising agencies, television stations, production companies, and publishers. Entries for the Telly Awards are judged by a group of more than 200 industry leaders who have previously won Telly Awards.

“We are proud to be recognized amongst such high-profile winners as Warner Bros., The Walt Disney Company, HBO, Playstation, and ViacomCBS,” SRNS Corporate Communications Director Dawn Haygood said. “We are thrilled to be awarded these Telly Awards, which symbolize the quality of the team that earned them and our commitment to keeping the public and our employees informed on how we are making the world safer.”

“Savannah River Site Overview,” was produced by Brad Bohr and Nathan Lester of the SRNS Communications & Media Services Department. “SRNS Now: September 2020” was produced by the entire SRNS Communications & Media Services Department, including Bohr, Lester, Laura Russo, Andrew Harrell, Ian Rojas-Godoy, and Steve Ashe. Tom Kotti, who is retired, was the manager of the Media Services Department during the production of the award-winning videos.
