ORAZIA Iannelli’s gung-ho attitude and work ethic has landed her a prestigious award.
The former Leeton resident, who is known to many as Grace, recently won the individual gold rocket award at PromaxBDA Australia New Zealand awards in Sydney.
The award recognises the outstanding work of a promotional producer or broadcast designer with less than two years professional experience.
Miss Iannelli is currently employed by Foxtel, helping with creative content, but residents may have also spotted her in a recent Coca Cola advertisement.
Having competed a Bachelor of Arts (Acting for Screen and Stage) at Charles Sturt University in Wagga, Miss Ianneli then made the move to Sydney.
She said her work with Foxtel was exciting each day.
“It’s not just a desk job,” Miss Iannelli said.
“My boss actually put me up for the award and I had to submit a body of work, no more than three minutes and a CV.
“I love my job, it’s always exciting and you get to do a lot of cool things.
“I really didn’t think I would win. It was a bit of a shock.”
Miss Iannelli is currently working on concepts for a new program on Foxtel with comedian/presenter Tommy Little. “That’s going to be a lot of fun,” she said.
