The American Council of the Blind’s 2022 Audio Description Awards Gala will be held online Nov. 29, 2022, at 7:30 p.m. Eastern.
In its second year, the Audio Description Awards Gala will be honoring significant achievements in media that continue to pave the way for creating the audio description standard as well as recognizing the best of television, streaming, and the film industry’s commitment to accessible media for blind and low vision audiences in the form of audio description.
This year’s honorees have been carefully selected by a diverse group of leaders from the audio description panel who have identified recipients as both audio description content leaders and media industry game changers! The award recipients will receive the prestigious ACB Barry Award in recognition as the best of the best in the field of audio description.
Come celebrate the achievements of these award recipients with our special celebrity guests!
The event’s goal is to raise funding to support ACB’s Audio Description Project (ADP), which was founded in 2009, and works with stakeholders and industry leaders to provide accessible video entertainment and information through the delivery of audio-described content. As the ADP continues to educate the community on the value and need for audio description, please consider making a donation to help support our mission and to achieve our goal of accessible media for everyone in the blind and low vision community.
Put the 2022 Audio Description Awards Gala, brought to you by the American Council of the Blind, on your calendar for Tuesday, Nov. 29th, to celebrate outstanding achievements and help to increase awareness and demonstrate to audiences what a powerful effect the inclusion of audio description has on the lives of individuals who are blind or have low vision.
