Duquesne University Professor Receives Telly Award

Dennis Woytek, assistant professor in the Journalism and Multimedia Arts Department at Duquesne University, has a received Telly Award for his outstanding work in documentary film. 

Woytek served as producer, videographer, writer and editor for his award-winning documentary, A Journey of Faith. The documentary follows a group of Pittsburghers on pilgrimage to Medjugorje, a town in Bosnia-Herzegovina where the Blessed Virgin Mary reportedly appeared to six children and has been appearing to them on a regular basis ever since, giving them messages for the world. The documentary lets the viewer experience what pilgrims see and do when they visit Medjugorje.

This accolade is Woytek’s second Telly. He was first recognized for his travel program Pennsylvania Adventures in 1991.

The Telly Awards, founded in 1979, are a prestigious distinction honoring outstanding local, regional and cable TV commercials and programs, video and film productions. Woytek was among more than 13,000 other entries from all 50 states and five continents.
