Blue Chalk honored with AIB Award

November 5, 2015

We're excited to announce that, for the second year in a row, Blue Chalk Media has won the prize for best short feature documentary from the Association for International Broadcasters (AIB). 

Blue Chalk founder and CEO, Greg Moyer, was in London to accept the award last night.  

The winning film, "Burned Girl," created for the charity WonderWork, tells the story of Ragini, a nine-year-old burn victim, who receives the help she needs after more than seven years of suffering. 

The AIB judges felt it was "a great example of the short feature genre, weaving an extremely well-crafted story with great camera work to make a compelling story come to life." 

AIB hosts the annual AIBs - The International Media Excellence Awards to celebrate and honor the best in electronic journalism and factual storytelling. This year was the 11th edition and winners covering 17 categories came from the largest pool of entries ever received.

Others highly commended in the category included BBC World Service for "Hooked" and ITN for "On Assignment: Heroin on the East Coast."

Congratulations to all of the winners and honorees, we are proud to be in the company of such talented storytellers!
