The New York Apple Association’s series of videos won two Telly Awards.

The videos, featuring New York apple growers and Kelly Springer, earned the Gold Telly Award in the Food & Beverage: Growers category and the Silver Telly Award in the Food & Beverage: Nutrition category, respectively.

“The New York Apple Association is pushing the boundaries for video and television innovation and creativity at a time when the industry is both rapidly changing and heavily impacted by the current crisis,” Sabrina Dridje, managing director of the Telly Awards, said in a news release.

The theme this season was “Telly Award Winners Tell Great Stories,” according to the release.

“We are thrilled with this news. The 12 grower and five nutrition videos are popular on social media platforms, and we are making them available for all of our growers, retailers and other outlets to be used on their websites and social media programs,” Cynthia Haskins, NYAA president and CEO, said in the release.

Created to showcase NYAA’s apple orchard and growers, the videos relay facts about New York apple production and nutrition.

“The videos are an excellent addition to our portfolio for retailers’ social media programs. We’re honored to receive these awards and can’t wait to share these videos with our partners,” Cailin Kowalewski, retail account manager, said in the release.

The videos are available on the apple association’s YouTube page and feature NY apple growers and registered dietitian Kelly Springer.
