Alhurra Television has won a 2014 Spring CINE Golden Eagle Award for the television promo showcasing the documentary Egypt in Crisis. It was recognized in the category of Best Commercials and Promotions.
Egypt in Crisis is an hour-long documentary that examines the complex situation in Egypt and the unclear future that awaits Egyptian society. The award winning promo coveys, in 30 seconds, the dynamic themes and emotions portrayed in the documentary. The images used in the promotion are very symbolic and stress the different motives, feelings, and powers behind the crisis. It also raises the question regarding the future of Egyptian society.
“This is the second time Alhurra’s promotions team has been honored by the CINE Golden Eagle Award. They are a talented and dedicated group that shine the spotlight on Alhurra’s excellent programs,” stated Brian Conniff, President of Middle East Broadcasting Networks (MBN) that manages and operates Alhurra Television. “The promotions team does a great job generating interest and excitement for Alhurra’s programs.”
