The Department of Environmental Protection’s Division of Solid Waste Services (DSWS) recently received seven awards in two international competitions -- the Telly Awards and the Hermes Creative Awards -- for its outreach and education efforts.
Founded in 1978, the Telly Awards honor excellence in local, regional and cable TV commercials, non-broadcast videos and TV programs. The 34th Annual Telly Awards received more than 12,000 entries from all 50 states and five continents.
Hermes Creative Awards is an international competition for creative professionals involved in the concept, writing and design of traditional materials and programs and emerging technologies.
Nominations for the DSWS campaigns were submitted by TRI (Technical Resources International) a Bethesda-based firm which provides support assistance to DSWS in its communications efforts.
