Brooklyn Center, MN – All lights were forced on aquatic invasive species (AIS) as partners with the Clean Drain Dry Initiative™ recently celebrated three Telly Awards for television production. Awarded in partnership with Wired2Fish, media efforts spotlighted the Clean Drain Dry prevention message within the fishing and outdoor community.
Winning categories included Bronze Awards for Non-profit, Video/Cinematography and Editing. The award winning content is seen on television networks including Pursuit, The Sportsman Channel, Fox Sports North, Fox Sports Midwest, Fox Sports Detroit, Fox Sports Ohio, Fox Sports South, Comcast Sports Northwest, World Fishing Network and WILD TV (Canada). Together the audience reach was 130 million viewers.
“It is very rewarding to represent and work with Wildlife Forever and the Clean Drain Dry conservation message, which aims to prevent AIS. We encourage all marine and fishing industry groups to support this initiative,” said Scott Glorvigen, co-owner of Wired2Fish.
The Telly Awards honor the very best film and video productions, groundbreaking online video content and outstanding local, regional and cable TV commercials and programs from more than 12,000 entries per year.
“Wired2Fish and our many partners have been instrumental in helping the Clean Drain Dry Initiative reach millions of anglers and boaters with the easy how-to prevention message. Invasive species threaten fishing, access and deter new anglers from participating. Clean Drain Dry is simple and people get it,” said Pat Conzemius, Conservation Director.
The Clean Drain Dry Initiative™ is the national outreach campaign to educate all outdoor recreational users on how to prevent the spread of invasive species. Working with local, state, federal and the outdoor industry, coordinated invasive species messaging focuses on strategic content, marketing communications and outreach tools for how to prevent.
