Cook Inlet Housing Authority (CIHA) was recently awarded three Bronze Telly Awards for two videos about Loussac Place. The Telly Awards are national awards honoring the very best film and video productions, groundbreaking online video content, and outstanding local, regional, and cable TV commercials and programs.
Entries are judged against a high standard of merit. Judges score the entries on a performance scale and winning entries are recognized and awarded as Silver or Bronze winners based on the combined scoring of the judges who evaluated each entry. There were nearly 12,000 entries from all 50 states and five continents.
“We use videos to help us convey the importance of creating opportunities for affordable housing and how that housing opportunity affects the people who choose to live in our homes,” said CIRI shareholder and CIHA President and CEO Carol Gore. “We know that affordable housing is the right foundation for healthy families and communities, and a path to self-sufficiency.”
The Loussac Place “Grand Opening” video won two Telly Bronze Awards in the categories of Non-Broadcast Productions, Public Relations and Non-Broadcast Productions, Social Issues.
“A Place to Heal” video also won the Telly Bronze Award in the category of Non-Broadcast Productions, Social Issues.
Loussac Place is CIHA’s most recently completed family housing development. Located in mid-town Anchorage, it is a 120-unit, mixed income neighborhood, serving a diverse mix of residents, with a safe, affordable housing opportunity.
