We are thrilled to announce that Al Jazeera Media Network has been named the 2021 Telly Company of the Year! Each year, this special honor recognizes the organization with the most success in the 42nd Annual Telly Awards competition, across Gold, Silver and Bronze.
Al Jazeera Media Network is the first non-U.S. company to win Telly Company of the Year, and reflects our commitment to honoring the global stories and creators. During a year marked by many changes, Al Jazeera Media Network has displayed great ingenuity to tell impactful and authentic stories from around the world. From pieces like A Day in Wuhan and Stricken Beirut, along with the About Cinema series, Al Jazeera Media Network’s work this season truly embodies the very best of creativity and quality across all screens.
Launched in 1996, Al Jazeera Arabic was the first independent news channel in the Arab world dedicated to providing comprehensive news and live debate. In 2006, Al Jazeera Satellite Network was renamed to Al Jazeera Media Network.
Congratulations again to the entire team!
