Intelligence Squared U.S. Twice Named Winner in the 34th Annual Telly Awards

By IQ2 Staff — August 22, 2013

The 34th Annual Telly Awards has recognized Intelligence Squared U.S. with two awards in the Film & Video category: the Silver Award for Live Events and the Bronze Award for Political/Commentary, competing against nearly 12,000 entries from all 50 states and numerous countries.

Founded in 2006 and taped in front of a live audience in New York City, Intelligence Squared U.S. has grown into a unique multi-platform experience that spans live events, radio, television, podcasts, digital and social media that is heard and watched by millions internationally. Currently airing in nearly 80% of PBS and WORLD channel airing households across major markets, including New York, Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., Chicago, and Boston, the series also reaches viewers globally through its interactive streaming and video services on FORA.tv, Vimeo, and YouTube.

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. “Intelligence Squared U.S.’s accomplishment illustrates their creativity, skill, and dedication to their craft, and serves as a testament to great film and video production.”

We express our sincere gratitude to the Telly Awards for recognizing our contribution to raising the level of public discourse in the United States and beyond.  Special thanks to Joe Locarro of Suspension Productions, our Broadcast Director, also recognized by the Telly Awards!
