No matter where Scripps Networks’ content is consumed – on a television, phone, tablet or computer – the measure for success is whether it connects with fans and provides entertainment and inspiration. From home to food to travel, that’s our bread and butter.
 
Every once in a while, though, it’s exciting when your efforts are acknowledged by industry peers. Along these lines, Cynopsis recently unveiled the finalist lists for two of their upcoming awards shows – the 2018 TV Awards and the Short Form Video Festival – and all told, Scripps Networks tallied 60 finalist nods. You read that right: 6-0. Why is that a big deal? It means other experts in the linear television and digital spaces think Scripps Networks is doing some of the media industry’s best work, from delicious and whacky pizza skulls on Genius Kitchen to long-time favorites like Bizarre Foods on Travel Channel. Color us proud!
 
Hardware for the TV Awards will be handed out on Wednesday, February 7 at the Espace in New York, and the Short Form Video Festival follows soon after on Wednesday, March 7 at the SVA Theater, also in New York.
