The Growing California video series, a partnership between CDFA and California Grown produced in association with California State University, Sacramento, has been recognized with two 2016 Telly Awards, a video competition now in its 37th year. Growing California also won three Tellys in 2014 and three in 2013.
The Telly Awards honor outstanding local, regional and cable TV commercials and programs, as well as video and film productions, and work created for the Internet.
The segments that were honored were “Friends of the Range,” a look at cattle ranching in the shadow of Mt. Diablo in the East Bay, and “Cow Power,” a story about converting manure to renewable energy.
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.
