4 Testimonials to Excellence

United Methodist Communities (UMC) announced the receipt of four early deadline Videographer Awards. Winners chosen from thousands of production and communication professionals, enter their most creative work in 166 categories under three unique production headings. Image Revolver, a video production company in Philadelphia, partnered with UMC to produce all four videos.

The Videographer Awards is administered and judged by the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals (AMCP). Winners range from network news operations to local cable access … from large production companies to freelancers … from international advertising agencies to student producers.

A Commercial for HomeWorks, UMC’s home care division, won an Award of Excellence. The judges deemed it among projects written, produced, shot and edited in an exceptional manner. Approximately 13 percent of the entries win this award.

Two videos, both produced for the web, each scored an Award of Distinction. The first, titled Body Builder George Campbell, features a resident athlete. The second, 60 Years of Love, portrays the decades-long romance between a couple, now in their 80s. Exceeding industry standards, approximately 14 percent of the entries won in this award.

The fourth award, Dealing with Death in Community, garnered an Honorable Mention. This web-based production, features a retired pastor delivering an informational thought leadership piece from the perspective of one who lives in a senior community and who possesses professional grief counseling training. Honorable Mention designation is usually awarded to about 6 percent of the entries.

The international organization consists of several thousand marketing, communication, advertising, public relations, media production, and free-lance professionals who have entered AMCP programs. The Advisory Board oversees awards and recognition programs, provides judges, and sets standards of excellence.
