We’re delighted to share that last night at the New York Festivals’ TV & Film Awards - Zinc Media Group was awarded Production Company of the Year. The New York Festivals is one of the most prominent competitions in our industry, where we face stiff competition from some of the biggest names on the circuit. It’s always a great honour to walk away with any accolades, but this year’s results are particularly special.
In addition to winning Production Company of the Year, Zinc companies picked up a string of other awards including the Grand Award, 2 Gold Awards, and 5 Silver awards, with Tern TV, The Edge, and Zinc Communicate sharing the awards for work produced for Sky, the BBC and Network Rail. These awards embrace all aspects of Television and Film with entrants from over 50 countries. The biggest and best production companies enter, and this year included BBC Studios, Endemol, Avalon, All3Media, Banijay and Windfall among many others, making us so honoured to have been awarded this overall prize, when competing against such revered peers.
