The Guild for Human Services has been recognized with a Telly Award for its short film documentary, The World Got Smaller: The Spirit of The Guild during COVID-19.

The Telly Awards is the premier award organization honoring video and television across all screens. Established in 1979, The Telly Awards receives annually over 12,000 entries from all 50 states and 5 continents. Entrants are judged by The Telly Awards Judging Council – an industry body of over 200 leading experts across advertising agencies, production companies, and major television networks. The Council is reflective of the multiscreen industry and includes executives from Hearst Media, Vice+, A&E Networks, Dow Jones, and Vimeo.

Winners are selected for recognition based on excellence in the following areas: branded content, commercials & marketing, immersive & mixed reality, non-broadcast, series / shows / segments and social video. The World Got Smaller was recognized with a Bronze Award in the non-broadcast, social issue category.

“We’re thrilled that members of the Guild community are getting the recognition they deserve through this award,” says Amy Sousa, CEO of The Guild. “We hope this film continues to inspire viewers to work toward full community inclusion of people with disabilities.”

The film, which was produced by Viamark Video, is now available to the general public on Vimeo here.
