Blue Chalk Honored by AIB, W3 and Davey Awards
Three separate awards competitions have honored Blue Chalk projects.
First, our documentary, “Minidoka,” directed by Megumi Nishikura, was “Highly Commended” at the Association of International Broadcasting (AIB) Awards which took place in London on November 6th, 2019.
The judges praised “the beautiful edit and sound design, tying the past and present together in a poignant and powerful way.” Our CEO, Greg Moyer, was in attendance at the awards gala in London’s historic LSO St. Luke's church.
The AIB Awards are the international awards for factual television, radio, audio and online productions in any language. This year, organizations such as the BBC, ITV, Al Jazeera and CNN were among the winners. This was also Blue Chalk’s sixth year in a row to be honored by these awards.
Next, our film “How Seamus Gets a Fish,” won a gold award in the “Not-for-Profit” category at the Davey Awards while our films “Fix me a Plate: Food Sermon,” “Let Knowledge Serve,” and “The India 100: Explore the Wild,” won silver Davey Awards.
The Davey Awards honors the achievements of small firms whose success comes from big ideas. It's judged by the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts, an invitation-only body with members from organizations such as Conde Nast, Disney, Microsoft, MTV Networks, Yahoo, and many more.
Finally, “The India 100: Explore the Wild,” won “Best in Show,” in the “Online Video for Travel for Video” category at the W3 Awards. Our projects “Freeland Spirits,” “Fix Me a Plate: Series Two,” and “How Seamus Gets a Fish,” all won silver W3 Awards.
