FARE Creative Team Wins Telly Awards

June 1, 2022 (McLean, VA) – Food Allergy Research and Education (FARE) is proud to announce that the Creative Team has won two Telly Awards for their work in branded content. The team, led by Jonathan Cane, received these awards in recognition of their hard work creating some of the best content within television and across video. 

The FARE Creative Team won a Silver award in the Branded Content–Education & Training category for “Food Allergy Substitutions with Chef Leslie Durso,” which features vegan and food allergy chef Leslie Durso identifying ingredient swaps for the most common food allergens. 

In the Branded Content–Campaign: Not-for-profit category, the Team won a bronze award for the Teal Pumpkin Project. This project is a simple way to make trick-or-treating safer and more inclusive for the one in thirteen children living with food allergies by placing a teal pumpkin on your doorstep. A teal pumpkin signals that, in addition to candy, non-food trinkets and treats are being offered for all trick or treaters.
The Telly Awards is one of the most prestigious honors for video and television content across all screens. It was founded in 1979 to award excellence in local, regional and cable television commercials with non-broadcast video and television programming added soon after. With the recent evolution and rise of digital video (web series, VR, 360 and beyond), the Telly Awards today reflects and celebrates this exciting new era of the moving image on and offline. 

Please join us in congratulating Jonathan and the entire Creative Team for these impressive wins.
