NEW YORK, April 09. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian television network RT, previously known as Russia Today, won gold in one of the 15 categories at the esteemed New York Festivals Television and Film Awards, beating CNN and other international channels from more than 50 countries. One of the world’s major festivals in journalism, cinema and promotion, the award ceremony opened in Las Vegas.
RT won the Gold World Medal in the Human Concerns category among Documentary/Information Programme Productions for its Blood and Honor film, shot by RT’s Leonid Kanfer and Pavel Baidikov. The documentary tells about the importance of an ancient blood feud practice in the Caucasus mountains.
A series of promotional videos, Noticias Desde Dentro, from RT in Spanish, won bronze in the News Promotion category. Another bronze, in the Science and Technology category, went to an episode of RT’s Technology Update series, which tells about new ways of nuclear energy application in industrial spheres.
