Cube Hydro Partners selected a winner in the 38th Annual Telly Awards

Washington, D.C., April 24, 2017 – The Telly Awards has named Cube Hydro Partners, LLC as a bronze winner in the 38th Annual Telly Awards for its piece titled Innovations in Hydropower. 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 over 13,000 entries from all 50 states and numerous countries, this is truly an honor.

With aerial views of many of Cube Hydro’s projects, Innovations in Hydropower captures the untapped potential of hydropower, the nation’s most reliable and established source of clean, renewable energy. During the segment, Dr. Kristina Johnson, CEO of Cube Hydro Partners, and other energy experts describe how generation at non-powered dams, new and advancing technologies, and innovative partnerships can increase hydropower efficiency and productivity, and ultimately reduce our nation’s reliance on fossil fuels.

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 38th 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. “Cube Hydro Partners’ accomplishment illustrates their creativity, skill, and dedication to their craft and serves as a testament to great film and video production.”

“Cube Hydro Partners thanks DMG Productions for their partnership and the Telly Awards for this great honor,” said Johnson. “Our well-experienced and diverse leadership team were proud to provide unique insights in this segment to educate viewers on the importance of renewable hydropower.”
