“In the face of a year like no other, GCC has continued to defy the limitations of our new world, in continuing to create compelling and engaging work,” says Telly Awards Executive Director Sabrina Dridje. “This year’s submissions doubled down on what we already know about the industry. Creativity cannot be stopped. Collaboration will always prevail. New ideas and stories will always find a way to break through to an audience.
"We are proud to accept this Telly Award,” says Trevor Hands, Director of Communications for GCC. To be standing next to larger organizations such as Microsoft, Vanguard, and Cancer Treatment Centers of America is an honor for our regional cooperative. I believe GCC has done a great job over the last 100 years in serving farmers by being financially sound yet taking calculated risks when appropriate to move us forward in being able to provide the best service and resources possible to our membership, and I'm proud to be able to share that story through this mini-series."Today’s winners announcement caps a year-long celebration of creators defying the limitations by embracing platforms to increase awareness about injustices and promote solidarity for movements, as well as geographical, like developing fully remote pipelines for dispersed teams.
