The DAVE School Takes Top Awards at the 32nd Annual Telly Awards

Orlando, FL, June 29, 2011 --( The 32nd Telly Awards announced their 2011 winners, and The Digital Animation and Visual Effects School took six, three of them Silver Tellys, which are the highest Tellys awarded. Since 1978, The Telly Awards, whose partners include YouTube, Stash,, and Animation Magazine, have been honoring the very best local, regional, and cable television commercials and programs, as well as the finest video and film productions, and work created for the Web. Their mission has been to strengthen the visual arts community by inspiring, promoting, and supporting creativity. Besides The DAVE School submissions, this year’s annual Telly Awards received over 13,000 entries from all 50 states and 5 continents.

Awards are nothing new to The DAVE School. In November, 2010, The DAVE School won 13 Crystal Reel Awards, beating out other schools, including Full Sail University and Ringling College of Art and Design, in the competition. The DAVE School was also the winner of the "Best Animation" award from the 2010 Star Wars Fan Film Movie Challenge, sponsored by Lucasfilm and judged by George Lucas.

“Winning six Telly Awards is a testimony to the strength of our program and caliber of our students,” said DAVE School Executive Director Steve Warner. “Both of the films we submitted were created in just 12 weeks. All of the animation and visual effects were created by students, many of whom had never worked with computer graphics software before coming to the school. We are extremely proud of the work they did and are happy that the industry has chosen to award their exceptional work as well.”
