Telefilm Canada honoured at the 2010 International Arc Awards for its
2008-2009 annual report

MONTREAL, July 29 /CNW Telbec/ - Telefilm Canada is pleased to announce that once again it has been recognized for its 2008-2009 annual report "Action". Honoured by the 2010 International Arc Awards, an international annual report competition organized by MerComm, Inc., the Awards recognize outstanding achievement in annual reports from a variety of industries.

Telefilm received the following award:

Gold Award - Non-Traditional Annual Report - Government Agencies and Offices

"To be recognized by yet another international competition is an honour for all of us at Telefilm," said Carolle Brabant, Executive Director. "Each year, the annual report is the product of a good deal of time and energy on the part on many Telefilm employees, across many departments. It is extremely satisfying to then have that work acknowledged internationally."

Telefilm Canada worked with the Montreal-based marketing agency CG3 for the creative concept and execution of the 2008-2009 annual report.

The International Arc Awards has recognized Telefilm Canada on numerous occasions in the past, including in the 2009 when the organization's annual report won the Bronze Award in the same category.

This is the second award competition that has recognized the annual report "Action". Earlier in July, the 2009 Vision Awards awarded Telefilm with the following:

  • Gold Award: Government Organizations - Annual Revenue of $100 million to $1 billion
  • Silver Award: Best Agency Report - Americas Region
  • Ranked 97th: Top 100 Annual Reports of 2009

The 2010 International Arc Awards will be handed out at an awards banquet in New York, NY on September 16, 2010.

The International Arc Awards, established in 1987 by MerComm, Inc., an independent awards organization dedicated to defining standards of excellence in the communication industry, is one of the largest international competitions for annual reports.
