SAM Medical Products Selected a Winner in the 34th Annual Telly Awards
July 16, 2013 -- The Telly Awards has named SAM Medical Products as a Bronze winner in the 34th Annual Telly Awards for their pieces titled The Adventures of Sam Medic (Pelvic Sling II and SAM Splint). With nearly 12,000 entries from all 50 states and numerous countries, this is truly an honor.
The Sam Medic videos won awards in the category of Health and Wellness for online videos. By using a smart phone to scan a QR code printed on the splint product label, users access a short, scenario-based Sam Medic training video demonstrating proper product use. Training videos were created by Happy Trails Animation and include the SAM Splint, the SAM Pelvic Sling II, and the SAM Junctional Tourniquet.
At SAM Medical, the idea of using animation to express the critical product aspects of use was a completely new concept. "We are very pleased", says Tanya Stricker, Marketing Manager. "Our goal was to make training for our products fun and easily digestible for our customers. This award validates our efforts."
The Telly Awards was founded in 1979 and is the premier award honoring outstanding local, regional, and cable TV commercials and programs, the finest video and film productions, and online commercials, video and films. Winners represent the best work of the most respected advertising agencies, production companies, television stations, cable operators, and corporate video departments in the world.
For its 34th season, The Telly Awards once again joined forces with YouTube to give the public the power to view and rate videos submitted as part of the People's Telly Awards. In addition to recognition from the Silver Telly Council, the judging panel of over 500 accomplished industry professionals that selects the Telly Awards winners, the Internet community helps decide the People's Telly Awards winners. This year's award winners include corporations such as Intel, Johnson & Johnson, NBC Universal, and Warner Brothers.
"The Telly Awards has a mission to honor the very best in film and video," said Linda Day, Executive Director of the Telly Awards. "SAM Medical Products' accomplishment illustrates their creativity, skill, and dedication to their craft and serves as a testament to great film and video production."
