ORLANDO, Fla., Aug. 9, 2011 — Global-5 Communications recently received three prominent awards for video productions developed for internal communication, safety and education. The Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) awarded Global-5 a Bronze Anvil Award of Commendation for a video produced for the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT). The Orlando firm also received a Bronze Telly Award for the same video. Global-5 received another Bronze Telly Award for a video produced for ICF International demonstrating how emergency responders should prepare and react in a hurricane.

“This is a great honor for Global-5 and wonderful recognition for our team,” said Mary Hamill, Global-5 president and CEO. “The value of video for training and internal communications continues to grow. Our in-house capabilities allow us to provide award-winning products to our clients quickly and cost-effectively.”

The video produced for FDOT, the winner of a Telly and Bronze Anvil, showcased the benefits of a new roadway improvement contract and highlighted best practices for implementing the contract in other areas of the state and nation. The Telly award-winning video produced for ICF International, an engineering firm specializing in disaster preparedness training, was produced as a three-part newscast-style reenactment setting the stage for training priorities before, during and after a hurricane. The series was used in a tabletop exercise to help Tampa area emergency managers prepare for a direct hit from a Category 5 hurricane.

The 32nd Annual Telly Awards competition drew more than 13,000 competitors worldwide and honors the best cable television commercials and programs, video and film productions, and work created for the Web. The Bronze Anvil is one of the highest recognitions in the communications industry and is presented by PRSA, the nation’s largest public relations association.
