Integrated Global Communication graduate earns three Telly Awards


KENNESAW, Ga. (Jun 10, 2021) — It’s not every communications intern who arrives at their first day of work with 28 years’ experience. For the Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning (DECAL) and then-Kennesaw State University graduate student and intern Justin Webb, their collaboration resulted in three national video awards.

Videos that Webb produced last year during his DECAL internship recently earned two 2021 silver Telly Awards and one bronze award. The New York-based Tellys were launched in 1979 to recognize top television commercials, but now spotlight worthy video used on any platform.

Webb graduated last year with a Master of Arts in Integrated Global Communication (MAIGC). He has worked as a freelance video producer since 1993 and wanted to earn a graduate degree as a step into teaching video production.

“I was really excited about it,” Webb said. “I got to work in a state organization that was reaching out to kids over the summer and I was able to turn that into some compelling videos.”
