National Program Recognizes CNTV for Convention Videos


ST. LOUIS, Mo. — At the 2016 PCMA Education Conference, CNTV today announced that two of its convention projects have earned prestigious recognition from the Telly Awards. The projects supported the annual meetings of the American Society of Hematology and the Risk and Insurance Management Society, Inc. (RIMS)

The first production played before education sessions at the ASH Annual Meeting to educate attendees on meeting etiquette. The video, titled “Don’t Be That Guy,” reminded attendees to avoid distracting their colleagues with camera flashes and mobile devices. The Telly Awards recognized this production for its editing.

“I’m delighted to have partnered with CNTV on this project,” said ASH Senior Director of Meetings and Community Engagement William Reed, FASAE, CMP. “Our successful CNTV partnership has grown from ASH News TV daily meeting programs to year-round content production.” Reed also is 2016 Board Chair of PCMA.

For RIMS, CNTV created a general session impact video that visually leads viewers through the historic sights and sounds of New Orleans and connects with meeting content using dynamic text and skilled editing. The Telly Awards recognized this production for its videography.

“Our collaboration with CNTV allowed RIMS to kick-off its annual conference with energy and excitement that successfully inspired attendees,” said RIMS Vice President of Events and Education Stuart Ruff-Lyon, CMP, DES. Ruff-Lyon also serves on the PCMA board.

The productions were among more than 12,000 entries for the annual contest, which recognizes excellence in local, regional and cable TV commercials, as well as online commercials and videos and film productions.

CNTV is joined by other internationally recognized corporations and companies as winners of this year’s Telly Awards. Some of the other winners include CNN, Time Warner, Conde Nast Entertainment and ESPN. Organizers of the Telly Awards note: “When you consider that entrants submit only their very best work, as well as the extremely high number of entrants, earning a Telly Award is a significant creative achievement.”
