LAI Video “Walks” with 3 Gold Peer Awards!


While we were unable to come together in-person for the 2020 TIVA Peer Awards, we were flattered to learn that we “walked away” with six awards, including three golds and a nomination for the coveted Best of Show award.

For 23 years, the Television, Internet, and Video Association of DC has celebrated video marketing and storytelling excellence through the Peer Awards gala. This year, the maker community came together virtually to recognize DC’s best in film, television, and corporate communication.

LAI Video’s gold recipients featured a variety of creative talent and expertise, including a mission video for DC Public Schools, a commercial for a national physicians database and a docu-series for the Department of State, which was also recognized as a Best of Peer finalist. 

Our silver honorees included a case study on spatial neglect treatment, a scholarship video filmed at the YouTube Studio Space in New York City and a catchy animated jingle about washing your fruit (please do!).
