Folio, Webby and Rosey Awards Honor Blue Chalk Projects
At the end of March, we received the news that "The India 100," created with The Foundry for India's Ministry of Tourism, had won "Best Video" at the 2019 Folio: Digital Awards. The Folio Awards are one of the top honors in the digital space so this win meant a great deal to us.
While still on a high from our Folio win, we learned that “Fix Me a Plate,” produced for the Food Network and “The India 100” had both been nominated in The Webby Awards! This is the second time our work has been nominated by the Webbys, having had three projects honored in 2015.
As a nominee, we're in the running for a “Webby People's Voice Award,” but we're up against some stiff competition from the likes of National Geographic, Vice, Group Nine Media and Anthony Bourdain. If you could spare 30 seconds to vote for “The India 100” in the "Travel & Leisure" category and “Fix Me a Plate” in the “Food & Drink” category we would be incredibly grateful.
Finally, last week, we attended the Rosey Awards in Portland, Oregon, where our film for the Oregon Beverage Recycling Cooperative, “How Seamus Gets a Fish,” received a runner-up award in the “Non-profit” category. We were represented on the night by our production manager, Amy Polansky, and graphic designer, Miró Merrill, who had a great evening mixing with folks from Portland’s creative industry and eating s’mores!
