16 Mar ENNAID THERAPEUTICS SELECTED A WINNER IN THE 37th ANNUAL TELLY AWARDS
ALPHARETTA, Ga., March 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ ‐‐– The Telly Awards has named Ennaid Therapeutics as a bronze winner in the 37th Annual Telly Awards for their piece titled Innovations: Finding Cures. The segment was produced by DMG Productions and part of the Innovations w/Ed Begley, Jr series which airs via Discovery Channel and FOX Business. With nearly 12,000 entries from all 50 states and numerous countries, this is truly an honor.
Ennaid Therapeutics, located in Alpharetta, GA, is developing therapeutic cures to help the millions of people worldwide when infected with the mosquito‐borne disease, Zika Virus, now named a global public health emergency by the World Health Organization and the CDC. The global health community is urging caution and care in response to Zika’s explosive spread and is calling for rapidly stepped up efforts by researchers to find therapeutics and vaccines for those who contract it.
For years, Ennaid Therapeutics has been committed to developing cures for mosquito‐borne diseases, including Dengue, Chikungunya and Zika viruses – and is now advancing its work on Zika to address the urgent global need. Ennaid’s entry also showcases their commitment to the humanitarian aspect of the drugs they are developing, which is why, they are committed to making sure that each of these therapeutic cures gets to every corner of the world.
The Telly Awards was founded in 1979 and is the premier award honoring outstanding local, regional, and cable TV commercials and programs, the finest video and film productions, and online commercials, video and films. Winners represent the best work of the most respected advertising agencies, production companies, television stations, cable operators, and corporate video departments in the world.
For its 37th season, The Telly Awards once again joined forces with YouTube to give the public the power to view and rate videos submitted as part of the People’s Telly Awards. In addition to recognition from the Silver Telly Council, the judging panel that selects the Telly Awards winners, the Internet community helps decide the People’s Telly Awards winners.
A prestigious judging panel of over 500 accomplished industry professionals, each a past winner of a Silver Telly and a member of The Silver Telly Council, judged the competition, upholding the historical standard of excellence that Telly represents. The Silver Council evaluated entries to recognize distinction in creative work – entries do not compete against each other – rather entries are judged against a high standard of merit. Less than 10% of entries are chosen as Winners of the Silver Telly, our highest honor. Approximately 25% of entries are chosen as Winners of the Bronze Telly.
“The Telly Awards has a mission to honor the very best in film and video,” said Linda Day, Executive Director of the Telly Awards. “Ennaid Therapeutics accomplishment illustrates their creativity, skill, and dedication to their craft and serves as a testament to great film and video production.”
“We are honored to be selected for this prestigious award and owe tremendous gratitude to DMG Productions, LLC and everyone involved in this initiative” says Darnisha Harrison, Ennaid Therapeutics’ CEO.
