Announcing The Inaugural TAMMY Awards: The Best in Nonfiction Storytelling 2023

TB Media Group is kicking off our inaugural TAMMY Awards to close out 2023 on a high note! But what is the TAMMY Awards, you ask?

Just like the GRAMMY Awards recognizes the outstanding achievements in the music industry, the TAMMY Awards recognizes the best in nonfiction storytelling. (You could say it’s a nod to our business name and my first name.)

As the team was thinking of creative ways to wrap up the year, we decided to look back at the year’s projects by celebrating the incredible partners who trust us to tell their stories! So we created 8 categories (for 8 years in business), compiled a list of our projects from 2022 and 2023, and we sent out a ballot to the team.

Our team members voted on the projects that stood out in each category, and we are ready to share the results!

But before we do, we want to say that as a conscious business who prioritizes partnering with organizations who are values-aligned, all of our projects are special and unique in their own way. We want to thank all of you for your trust and partnership!

Now…drumroll please…..
