Orlando, Fl. May 24, 2017 – The Telly Awards has named DNA Films a Silver and Bronze winner in the 37th Annual Telly Awards for their piece titled Return to Ezperanza. With over 13,000 entries from all 50 states and numerous countries, this is truly an honor.
Return to Esperanza was awarded a Silver Telly for Non-Broadcast Cause Marketing and a Bronze Telly for Non-Broadcast Documentary.
About Return to Esperanza:
Since 1995, Esperanza International has funded micro-loans in the impoverished regions of the Dominican Republic. These loans have helped over 200,000 families start and build small businesses, lifting countless women and children out of poverty.
In 2012, an Emmy Award-winning director Nick Nanton traveled to the DR to document the work of Esperanza. He and his crew have returned to see how Esperanza’s entrepreneurs have changed, grown, and transformed their lives and the lives of their children.

About The Telly Awards:
The Telly Awards was founded in 1979 and is the premier award honoring outstanding local, regional, and cable TV commercials and programs, the finest video and film productions, and online commercials, video and films. Winners represent the best work of the most respected advertising agencies, production companies, television stations, cable operators, and corporate video departments in the world.
A prestigious judging panel of over 500 accomplished industry professionals, each a past winner of a Silver Telly and a member of The Silver Telly Council, judged the competition, upholding the historical standard of excellence that Telly represents. The Silver Council evaluated entries to recognize distinction in creative work – entries do not compete against each other – rather entries are judged against a high standard of merit. Less than 10% of entries are chosen as Winners of the Silver Telly, our highest honor. Approximately 25% of entries are chosen as Winners of the Bronze Telly.
