General information

By recognizing specific programming, the Peabody Awards spotlight instances of how electronic media can teach, expand our horizons, defend the public interest, or encourage empathy with others. Such excellent stories exist across genres and media types, and across regions and borders. When the first set of Peabody Awards were given out in 1941, broadcasting meant radio. Before the decade was over, the scope of the award grew to include television storytelling. By the late 20th Century, television was redefined through cable and satellite technologies. The Peabody Awards again recognized shifts in storytelling as a result of these changes. Early into the 21st century, we began to celebrate exemplary web content, which continues to open doors for new forms of storytelling. And now, with programming readily available for on-demand and online streaming through new platforms and exhibition spaces, what separates these spaces is less meaningful than the stories being told there. Throughout all this, the scope of the Peabody Awards continues to grow as media changes, but our goal remains the same: to recognize stories that matter. -Dr. Jeffrey P. Jones

2017's BEEN AN AMAZING YEAR ... 2018 WILL BE EVEN BETTER. After three years in production and lots of blood, sweat and debt, we were thrilled to complete "The BUDDY SYSTEM" last March and begin showing it all across the country at film festivals, conferences and community screenings. We won at the Autism Society of America 's AutFest, screened as closing night event at the US Autism & Asperger Association's World conference, which featured Dr. Temple Grandin, and visited our friends at Sesame Workshop for a Private Preview and Puppy Party as they were preparing to introduce "Julia", the first Muppet on the spectrum. It's very gratifying, if a little exhausting, to look back and we truly appreciate all of your continuing support, especially as we still need it to keep moving ahead with more special event screenings leading up to an official public release of "The BUDDY SYSTEM" for broadcast and streaming in April, during Autism Awareness month. In the meantime, you can see a private preview of the complete film online as a thank you gift for a donation of $25, or more, and we still have a few puppies from our Holiday Toy Buddy litter available - $60 for Little Buddy / $100 for Big Buddy, see pics in posts below.
