NUHW wins Telly awards for “Fight of Our Lives” video

November 29th, 2021

NUHW has been honored with two Telly awards for the “Fight of Our Lives” video that kicked off last year’s virtual Leadership Conference. 

The Tellys, an international organization that honors “excellence in video and television across all screens,” created a new category this year to recognize videos made under pandemic working conditions. With social distancing measures in place in 2020, video producers and organizations like ours had to look for creative alternatives to in-person video shoots, including using stock footage. 

For our first ever virtual Leadership Conference in October of 2020, we crafted an opening video that used stock footage to convey the conditions under which NUHW members were living and working and that could frame the discussion for our conference.

The Tellys awarded NUHW a gold medal for use of stock footage in a non-broadcast video and a silver medal for use of stock footage in a brand video. 

Last year, NUHW’s short documentary “Elizabeth’s Story” won two gold medals and a silver medal for online video work pertaining to social issues, charitable issues, and social impact. The film told the story of Elizabeth Brown, who died by suicide after a long struggle to obtain mental health care from Kaiser Permanente.
