Fireside Production is thrilled to announce we have earned top honors in the 2011 international Ava Awards competition. Judges recognized two of our submissions for outstanding achievement. This is the second consecutive year Fireside Production has won recognition for video production excellence in this competition. The Ava Awards pay tribute to the magnificent history of the audio-visual industry.
Fireside Production earned the highest honor, the Platinum Ava Award, in the Government Video Production category for the piece we created on climate change research for a federal laboratory in Colorado. The Platinum Award recognizes the most outstanding submissions for their quality, creativity and resourcefulness. Just 14% of the estimated 1,700 entries win the Platinum Award.
Fireside Production was also honored with the Gold Ava Award in the Environmental Issue Video Production category for the Green Jobs Training video we produced for Mi Casa Resource Center presented by the Environmental Defense Fund.
“Mi Casa is incredibly proud to see this video about our green jobs training program win recognition,” said Christine Marquez-Hudson, Mi Casa’s CEO/Executive Director. “It’s important for people to understand that the green sectors in Colorado are actively improving the environment and simultaneously creating valuable new employment opportunities for workers in need of a boost.”
