ESPN received significant recognition at April’s 2020 New York Festivals TV & Film Awards, a global event designed to honour content in all lengths and forms.
The creative services and production operations groups won a combined 15 medals across a variety of categories.
“These groups consistently produce content that significantly adds to ESPN’s overall presentation of key productions and events,” said Jodi Markley, executive vice president, content operations and creative services. “Having that work honoured by the industry is a meaningful tribute to the dedicated, collaborative effort by all involved.”
ESPN’s creative services team, along with the production operations group, won seven medals, including four Gold for content tied to the ACC Network, NBA and NFL. The network’s edit operations team specifically, was awarded an additional 8 medals. The two Gold spotlighted the team’s work with E:60 and the Special Olympics World Games.
