Teenage Voice by DLX Inc. Gives Young People an Online Voice on Climate Change


BACKGROUND
Responding to climate change is an urgent issue, and the withdrawal from the Paris Agreement by the world's number one major power, the United States of America, is an indication that improvements towards the climate change issue are not looking good. On the other side, the younger generation, which will be facing this problem in the near future, is raising their voices about this problem and have started taking action towards a solution.

EXECUTION
The words of children can be so perceptive that they move adults to take action. Believing in the power of children's words, we launched new signature gathering efforts against climate change. We collected the voices of children from around the world into a single message and put it in newspapers, magazines, billboards, and media content. People could directly add their signature wherever they saw this message, and we encouraged the participation of the younger generation and major environmental organizations.

RESULTS
With the resonance of the large number of young people who want to protect the future of our planet, we shared the project with the world by sharing media featuring the children who participated. As a result, we gathered and obtained 30,000 signatures from around the world and achieved 90+M impressions in one week. We have also received endorsement comments from major environmental organizations such as Greenpeace and Conservation International, and we have contributed to cooperative efforts in various places.

Marking its 40th anniversary as the world's largest honor for video and television content across all screens, The Telly Awardsannounced this year’s winners, including animated, environmentally-conscious standouts like Passion Pictures & CNN’s "There's a Rang-Tan in my Bedroom", live streaming favorite DC Entertainment’s “DC Daily Live with Kevin Smith”, Netflix’s drag show music video of Dolly Parton's legendary "Jolene" and CBS Interactive's viral juggernaut for "The Late Late Show with James Corden: The Biggest Baby Shark Ever” starring a crooning Josh Groban and Sophie Turner. A resurgence of documentary filmmaking also prompted top honors for a diverse range of companies: ESPN, AETN, AJ+, HBO Latin America, and PBS.

Their commitment to creating great work, online and off, truly embodies the full breadth of platforms and screens the Tellys honor.

This year’s winners not only represent a further broadening of the online landscape to embrace more documentary, scripted and even episodic pieces, but an increased focus on Branded Content and innovative new platforms like VR and Social Streaming.

“We spend a lot of time listening to the creative community and our industry to better understand where the opportunities are for storytelling, and Social and Branded Content rose head and shoulders above the rest,” said Telly’s managing director Sabrina Dridje. “CBS Interactive especially should be commended for its approach to social and online video. These are areas that take a specific set of skills to produce great work, and as an organization honoring video and television content, spotlighting their efforts is fundamental to our mission.”

In addition to a refreshed mission and recent rebrand, this year’s Telly Awards boasted a new roster of judges, comprising the most diverse and elite group of television and video industry leaders in the award’s history.  Entries were evaluated by jury members from creative powerhouse Droga5, next generation motion picture studio Ryot, Condé Nast, Framestore, Vimeo, Vice, A&E Networks and more.

Indicative of their renewed multi-screen focus is the VR category, which recognized Google’sBack to the Moon”, an animated fairytale adventure that celebrates the life and art of French illusionist and film director Georges Méliès, and BBDO DUBLIN’sConsequences” which shows the tragic results of a night of drinking and driving. Tribeca and New York Film Festival favorite “Fire Escape” also won VR gold for its gripping story centered on solving a murder mystery.

Meanwhile, newer studios and networks also found success with Stept Studios, Blue Chalk Media, and SoulPancake picking up awards in various categories.
