The Gypsum Association and video production contractor Production Outfitters Inc. have received a 2008 Videographer Award of Distinction for the association’s recently revised video, “The Miracle Mineral.”

“We’re quite pleased about the award and very grateful that Production Outfitters thought enough of the work that they did for us to submit the project for the award. We understand that the Award of Distinction is one of the most coveted awards in the video industry,” said Lee Jones, the director of promotion services for the GA.

The Videographer Awards project is administered and judged by the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals, an international organization that consists of several thousand marketing, communication, advertising, public relations, media production and freelance professionals who have entered AMCP programs.

The goal of the Videographer Awards is to identify and recognize the video artisans who excel in the scope of their own environment. Winners were selected from 166 categories under the headings of television productions, video productions and new media. The Award of Distinction was awarded for projects that exceeded industry standards. The Miracle Mineral was submitted for consideration in the Instructional category of the Videographer Awards.
