Newseum Receives Honors in New York Festivals Awards

Three original Newseum film productions have been honored by the 2013 New York Festivals’ International Television & Film Awards. The awards were announced April 9, 2013, at the National Association of Broadcasters convention in Las Vegas.

The Newseum’s entries competed against those from HBO, CBS, CNN and the BBC in the competition that honors many types of programs submitted from more than 50 countries.

A Gold World Medal in production design/art direction in the documentaries category went to a film focusing on presidential campaign advertisements shown in the Newseum’s Robert H. and Clarice Smith Big Screen Theater as part of the exhibit “Every Four Years: Presidential Campaigns and the Press,” which closed in January 2013.
