I just heard from PEER 1 that they will be picking up four Telly Awards this June for two of their videos - episode one of Growing Pains and their Customer Profile on Plentyoffish. The Tellys honor the very best in local, regional, and cable television and programs, as well as the finest video and film productions, and work created for the web.
There were over 14,000 entries submitted in various categories this year from 50 states and 5 continents. Episode 2 & 3 of Growing Pains will be released on May 1st along with the launch of PEER 1's new $10,000 Grand Prize Giveaway.To enter the contest, they're asking people to upload a short film describing their web hosting growing pains, funny situations in running their online business and/or difficulties in getting their start-up off the ground. Videos will be judged on creativity and originality.
The winner will receive a $10,000 and their video will be used in future PEER 1 online advertising. Not bad. On a side note, PEER 1 continues to step up their marketing efforts with the Headline Sponsorship of GigaOM's Structure 08 event on June 25th, 2008 in San Francisco. Nice work Rajan.
