|Angel Award Winner for The Harvest Video|
In 1977, Mary Dorr founded the Angel Awards to honor those creative people in motion pictures, television, radio, books, albums and all other forms of the media who were turning out works of excellence that had either high moral, spiritual, or social impact.
Today the International Angel Awards, covered by more than 100 press outlets worldwide, gives Angel statuettes to the best films, television shows, and to a host of books, albums, videos, stage plays, and other works in the field of communications.
