More Awards for AiG

Praise God! Christian media awards are helping tell others about AiG’s video productions and their important messages of biblical authority and the gospel!

We’ve received word that three of AiG’s most popular DVD productions received awards for excellence at the recent annual convention of the group International Christian Visual Media (www.icvm.com). ICVM is one of the most respected trade associations for Christian professionals involved in film and video production. It is comprised of many of the top producers, actors, writers, cinematographers, and others who use their God-given talents to reach the world with the gospel message. This year’s good news involves the winning of two top awards (called “Gold Crowns”) and three others:

  • Check This Out (animated DVD)—“Best Short Film” Winner, 2012 ICVM Gold Crown Award
  • The Foundations (Ken Ham series)—“Best Series” Winner, 2012 ICVM Gold Crown Award
  • I Dig Dinosaurs (Buddy Davis live action documentary)—“Documentary Under $50,000” category, 2012 Silver Crown Award
  • The Foundations (Ken Ham series)—“Curriculum” category, 2012 Silver Crown Award
  • I Dig Dinosaurs (Buddy Davis live action documentary)—“Children’s Film” category, 2012 Bronze Crown Award

This year’s event featured Christian film veterans such as Phil Vischer (VeggieTales), the Kendrick brothers (Courageous, Fireproof, and so on), Bart Gavigan (BBC writer), Jerry Jenkins (coauthor with Tim LaHaye of the Left Behind book series), and numerous others. We praise God for these awards of recognition that help affirm the quality of AiG’s productions to those considering their use!

Down Under Guest

We were thrilled to have Paul and Sharon Salmon from Australia at AiG for a few days. Paul worked in the AiG ministry in Australia for over 20 years and is a close friend. He now works in Christian education in Brisbane, Australia. Paul was also on the board of AiG USA in the early years of the ministry. Here is a photograph of Paul as he spoke to the AiG staff:
