Roll out the red carpet, the time has come for The 2012 TIVA-DC Peer Awards. Word Wizards Inc. has been a proud sponsor of TIVA-DC for over 15 years and we are happy to continue our support at this year’s Peer Awards. The stage is set for a media industry extravaganza, all in the spirit of honoring the best video projects of 2012. There will be laughs, tears, celebrities, and most importantly, there will be winners and losers. The Peer Awards will be held this Saturday, November 17th, and will be hosted at The National Press Club in D.C.
Host With The Most: Arch Campbell
Local celebrity and news media legend, Arch Campbell, has graciously agreed to host this years event. Mr. Campbell last hosted the Peer Awards in 2004 and has agreed to come out of award show host retirement for one last Peer Performance. Arch currently hosts “The Arch Campbell Show” on ABC News Channel 8 and is currently the entertainment reporter for ABC News Channel 7. Boasting a career in news media that spans over 35 years, Arch Campbell is the perfect man for the job, and we look forward to his upcoming role as the irreverent Peer Awards 2012 MC.
A Night of Many Talents
TIVA members from all across the region have submitted their best work in an attempt to take home a coveted Gold Peer Award. The categories range all across the video production spectrum. Winning Peer Award glory is a very special honor in our community, and we look forward to seeing all the entries and watching the proverbial cream rise to the top. Rumor has it that there will be more than just awards to entertain us this year, with some much needed comedic commentary by one of our most beloved TIVA-DC members.
Glitz, Glam, and Food
The 2012 Peer Awards are set to be a night to remember. Last year I was blown away by the winners, the presentations, and the amazing spread of food and desert. Check out my article form last year if you want a quick look at The 2011 Peer Awards. I know this year will be just as delicious! Thanks to all of our friends at TIVA-DC who work their tails off to organize and put on this wonderful event. So make sure to join us this year if you can.
