>I was notified on Thursday that FANTASTIC FORUM was the winner of a prestigious Award of Merit from The Accolade Competition. The Accolade recognizes film, television, videography and new media professionals who demonstrate exceptional achievement in craft and creativity, and those who produce standout entertainment or contribute to profound social change. Entries are judged by highly qualified professionals in the film and television industry. Information about the Accolade and a list of recent winners can be found at

In winning an Accolade, Fantastic Forum joins the ranks of other high profile winners of this internationally respected award. Thomas Baker, Ph.D., who chairs The Accolade, had this to say about the awards latest winners, “The Accolade is not an easy award to win. Entries are received from around the world. The Accolade helps set the standard for craft and creativity. The judges were pleased with the exceptionally high quality of entries. The goal of The Accolade is to help winners achieve the recognition they deserve.”

This award could not have been won without the ongoing contributions of the fabulous talent and dedicated production crew. These unsung heroes tirelessly employ their varied skills and abilities to make FANTASTIC FORUM a program worthy of attention and praise. I want to particularly recognize the contributions of hosts Sherin Nicole and Devon Sanders as well as director and editor Bryan Lyles. But this program would not be possible without all our terrific panelists, guests and devoted crew members who share in this award.
