3 Silver and 5 Bronze Telly Awards for Ascension, the Leader in Faith Formation

Prestigious awards for video excellence solidify Ascension’s reputation as the frontrunner of Catholic media companies.

[Exton, PA, May 26, 2021—] Undaunted by the challenges of the 2020 production season, Ascension brought home 8 Telly Awards this year: 3 Silver and 5 Bronze. The new statuettes will join 13 Telly Awards from previous years already gracing the halls of the Pennsylvania-based Catholic company. The 2021 season featured the company’s highest number of Silver winners to date.

This year Ascension’s Rejoice! Advent Meditations with the Holy Family won 2 Silver Telly Awards, a particularly impressive feat given that pandemic travel restrictions forced Ascension’s video team to develop alternative filming solutions for many of their video productions. Titles such as Rejoice!, The Ascension Lenten Companion, and Hebrews: The New and Eternal Covenant were each made possible by creative responses to challenging production obstacles.

“The work that our team completed in such challenging  circumstances last year was truly extraordinary,” comments Ascension President and CEO, Jonathan Strate. “We have a world-class team, and we’re proud to see their accomplishments recognized in this way by the Telly Awards program.”

The company’s Ascension Presents YouTube platform also earned high praise, with videos from popular figures Fr. Mike Schmitz and Fr. Mark-Mary Ames, CFR, winning Silver and Bronze awards, respectively.

Founded in 1979, the Telly Awards receive over 12,000 entries annually from all around the world. This is the third consecutive year that Ascension has been named a winner in the competition.
