2002 Telly Award : Hope for Children
"The Hope for Children video created by D-Cypher Productions is an effective tool for promoting child sponsorships. It lets the viewers see with their own eyes the impact that $25 a month has on the life of a child. As writer/producer, Mr. Cyphers was able to present us with a concept (within our budget) that appeals to a wide viewing audience. The Telly award winning video moves from an attention grabbing introduction to a sponsorship family "visited" by Hopi, a cartoon character who takes them on a visual journey to see the benefits their child is receiving through their monthly sponsorship."

2001 Telly Award : The Royal Gorge Bridge & Park
Doug Cyphers won a Telly Award for Videography for his ability to capture the grandeur and spectacular scenery of Colorado's magnificent Royal Gorge Bridge & Park. The video combines an on-camera talent, inter-cut with the scenery, train footage and attractions of the park to give the viewer the experience of the highest suspension bridge in the world. The video's producer, Fred Kidder of Resolution Bay, Inc., said of Doug's work:
"Doug was willing to go that extra mile to get the visuals we needed to take this video to the next level. He climbed down embankments with his camera equipment, hiked walking trails, rode trains, gondola's and hung out of a helicopter (with a safety harness) so that we could achieve the best possible quality."
