A video produced by Metro Television for the City's Working City program has earned a 2015 Telly Award. The Telly Awards are the video industry’s premier competition for recognition of exemplary video work. This is the sixth Telly Award for Metro TV.
The award-winning video is titled “Public Works – Safer Crossing.” It was created in conjunction with Public Works Engineering staff as a segment of the Working City series produced by the City of Eugene. The 4½ minute video highlights the partnerships between Public Works, neighborhood groups and the local school community that resulted in the construction of a pedestrian-activated crossing light on 30th Avenue near Camas Ridge Elementary School.
The video received the Bronze Award for its outstanding production quality in the Governmental Relations category. Award-winning productions illustrate the value of community and provide support for the retention of the channels in the City's franchise agreement with Comcast.
The video aired on Metro TV channel 21 and also can be viewed online at https://vimeo.com/112422483
