MDC-TV’s previous awards include four Suncoast Emmy Awards in the live events category, a Gold Telly Award for MDC-TV Newsflash in the news category and an Emmy nomination for a documentary film.

The Telly Awards showcase the best work created within television and across video for all screens. Winners are selected from more than 12,000 entries and they represent some of the most respected advertising agencies, television stations, production companies and publishers from around the world.

The Communicator Awards is the leading international competition recognizing big ideas in marketing and communications. Founded nearly three decades ago, The Communicator Awards receive more 6,000 entries from companies and agencies of all sizes, making it one of the largest awards of its kind in the world.
