It Is Written Wins 10 Telly Awards

It Is Written is grateful to announce that it has won 10 Telly awards this year for five different programs: one gold, seven silver, and two bronze.

“The reason we produce programs is not so we can win awards,” said John Bradshaw, It Is Written president. “Our programs are designed to reach souls with the everlasting gospel and encourage people to know and follow Jesus in preparation for His return. But these awards indicate that It Is Written is producing high-quality content, and they are a reflection of the outstanding work being done by our Media Production department. In addition, this recognition tells our ministry supporters that they are partnering with a ministry operating at an extremely high level.”

  • Gold–Television: Religious/Spiritual

      Thanks so much, Susan. This is a reflection of the blessing of God on our team. My role is very minor, given the bigger picture. I have people around me who work hard and well. I’m very happy to hear you’re blessed by the ministry of It Is Written. Please do pray for us, and me. God be with you. John Bradshaw

    Congratulations!!! But it’s no surprise to me, because my husband and I are one of so many IIW viewers who were so impacted by your programs! Watching Pastor Bradshaw’s sermons has moved my husband. So much so that he wants to be baptized when the province is open again and we are able to go to church. God bless

    “The Trail of Tears” & “Black Wall Street” are my two favorites. I have several others I love as well but these two really tugged on my heart & I watch them often.

    Thank you all for your excellent work in promoting the gospel.

    Your words are a welcome change from all the News sources in the World.
    It is wonderful to know that we serve a Very Present God who is interested in everything we do.
    Keep up the good work of inspiring us to be better people!


    ITW, you really deserve the awards for the above listed programs, as well as, other programs aired. I have seen all of them. When I watched them the time, content, message and all that it took to bring them to the viewers, impressed me. KEEP UP THE GOD WORK!!!!! GOD BLESS!!!

    Praise God for IIW. I especially appreciate how history is applicable to us today. Pastor Bradshaw always relates the past, present and future events to what is written in the Bible. God’s loving hand is in all of history, reminding believes what may go horribly wrong when we, as people, don’t follow His Word.

    Thank you Pastor Bradshaw and all of the It Is Written staff. The Lord has blessed IIW with these accolades to encourage you to continue in His good work, for His glory.

    Thank you,

    Crystal McKinley

    It has only been recently that we have been watching Pastor Bradshaw and his “around the world travels”. What a neat way to show and tell the gospel and review our Christian history because most of us will never be able to do that ourselves. We watch every Sunday 12:30 to 1 PM via TBN while we have lunch.
