Each year, the Alliance For Community Media Central States Region salutes the best community programming with a video contest, the Philo Festival Of Media Arts Video Competition. AccessVision has once again been honored with a "Philo" award for its programming.
AccessVision’s coverage of the Battle Creek Community Foundation’s 2014 Annual Meeting won a Finalist award in the Community Event (Professional) category. The video was produced by AccessVision’s staff Jason Augenstein, Dale Geminder and Jeffery Smith, along with Battle Creek Community Foundation Marketing Associate Clovis Bordeaux. The project was part of a campaign by BCCF to celebrate its 40th anniversary.
“It’s exciting for AccessVision and the Greater Battle Creek Area to receive this award on behalf of the hundreds of volunteer producers and nonprofits who use AccessVision” according to AccessVision's Executive Director Dale Geminder. "This speaks highly of the quality of work done by these nonprofits and the AccessVision staff.”
