We are very proud that Lynda was honored last night by the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) with the 2009 Eastman Kodak Gold Medal Award. Lynda was honored for her “contribution to education of technologies and practitioners in the field of media production, in particular, as a pioneer in online education through creation of the website lynda.com which provides affordable, interactive training programs for film, television, sound, and web production.”
The purpose of the award is to honor the recipient by recognizing outstanding contributions, which lead to new or unique educational programs utilizing motion pictures, television, high-speed and instrumentation photography or other photography sciences. The award recognizes developments in equipment, systems, or instructional applications, which result in advancing the educational process at any or all levels.
