The Growing California video series, a partnership between CDFA and California Grown produced in association with California State University, Sacramento, has been recognized with three 2014 Telly Awards, a video competition now in its 35th year. Growing California also won three Tellys in 2013.
Two of the segments that won, “Blossom Buddies (parts 1 and 2)” and “From Service to Harvest,” were honored in the category of Online Video – Information. The third video, “Onion Power,” was recognized in the category of Social Responsibility.
Growing California is an in-depth look at the many ways farming and ranching touches our lives – going beyond food production, although that is certainly featured prominently. The series also highlights food access, the diversity of California agriculture, and protection against invasive species. The winning videos are below.
