Anderson, Ind. --- Anderson University’s Covenant Productions® recently earned national recognition in the 22nd annual Telly Award competition. Covenant Productions® earned a bronze Telly Award for a promotional video produced for The Heartland Film Festival. Hosted by "Touched by an Angel" star John Dye, the piece communicated both the mission and nature of the longstanding Midwest festival. A second bronze Telly statuette was earned for a documentary entitled, Matthew 25:40 Ministries. This piece shared the story of a special ministry to senior adults in Chicago's Uptown neighborhood.
