Championship Productions Nets Fourth Telly Award in Four Years!

By nate.landas - Last updated: Friday, June 19, 2009

For the fourth time in the past four years, Championship Productions has been awarded a Telly Award for excellence in video production.  The award-winning title in 2009 is Basketball: The Don Meyer Way featuring the all-time winningest men’s basketball coach in NCAA history, Don Meyer.  Meyer, the head coach at Northern State University (SD) , has twice been the NAIA National Coach of the Year and is in the NAIA Hall of Fame.

The Telly Awards honor outstanding local, regional and cable television commercials and programs, as well as the finest video and film productions.  The Championship Productions’ basketball DVD was among 13,000 entries that covered all 50 states and five continents.

Basketball: The Don Meyer Way received a “bronze” award (The Telly Awards’ second-highest honor).  The bronze award scores from 7.0 to 8.9 on a 10-point scale; 18-25% of entrants receive a bronze.

Dustin McDonough, Championship Productions’ Video Production Director, said: “Winning this award, again, for the fourth time in just four years, confirms that our attention to detail, and quality, is both recognizable and noteworthy … this award is a great reinforcement to Coach Meyer and to the video production and editing team that putting your best effort forward makes a difference in perception and delivery.”

The Telly Awards were founded in 1978 by David E. Carter, a past Emmy® and Clio® winner, to honor excellence in local, regional and cable TV commercials.  Today, the Telly is one of the most sought-after awards by industry leaders, from large international firms to local production companies and ad agencies.  Judges evaluate entries to recognize distinction in creative work – and the entries are judged against a high standard of merit.  Past winners, in addition to Championship Productions, have included producers for HBO, A&E, The Discovery Channel, Sony Pictures, and TBS.

Ames-based Championship Productions, founded in 1976 by Bill Bergan, is the world’s No. 1 producer and distributor of sports instructional DVDs. Championship Productions produces instructional DVDs, commercials, and has a DVD duplication service.
