Columbia, MO -

MidwayUSA, a catalog and Internet retailer offering JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING® for Shooting, Reloading, Gunsmithing and Hunting, is pleased to be the recipient of a Telly Award and three Communicator Awards for 2010.

"We were excited this spring to win a Bronze Telly award and three Silver Communicator Awards," says Ryan Fischer, GunTec Manager at MidwayUSA. "Since 2005 we've produced over 300 video properties, and each year we find ways to improve the quality of the content. We are extremely proud to have been awarded these recognitions because it is a great indicator that our video content is serving the Customer."

Each year, the Telly Awards receive over 13,000 entries from agencies and production companies all over the world. In 2010, MidwayUSA submitted two items for review and received one Bronze Telly Award for the production of an informational video called Building a Rolling Block Pistol Grip.

The Communicator Awards are presented by the International Academy of Visual Arts. Topping out at over 7,000 entries, this year marked the highest number of entries ever. This year MidwayUSA received one Silver Communicator Award for the production on Gunsmithing the AR-15 DVD and two additional Silver Communicator Awards for Building a Rolling Block Pistol.

"Customers have always seemed to like the videos we produce. From the first ones we filmed over five years ago to the vignette we wrapped up last week, we focus on creating videos our Customers are interested in and can learn from," says Larry Potterfield, Founder and CEO, MidwayUSA. "Receiving these awards is a great accomplishment for the MidwayUSA team."
