Last year, Outdoor Channel received eight bronze Telly Awards in the Promotional Spot – Nature/Wildlife category and was the recipient of two silver and six bronze awards in the Programming category for Documentary, Education, Nature/Wildlife and Information.

Since 1978, the Telly Awards’ mission has been to strengthen the visual arts community by inspiring, promoting, and supporting creativity. Last year, for their 31st annual event, the New York City-based organization received over 13,000 entries from all 50 states and five continents. Judges evaluated entries to recognize distinction in creative work. Entries do not compete against each other; instead, entries are judged against a high standard of merit. Judges scored the 2011 entries on a performance scale and winning entries were recognized and awarded as Silver or Bronze Winners based on the combined scoring of the judges who evaluated each entry.
