History & Purpose

The Crown Awards are designed to recognize excellence in production and content of films and videos that are created to reflect Christian values in a secular world. Since 1973, when a group of distributors began to honor the work of Christian film producers, the traditional awards ceremony has made a great ending to the ICVM conference each year.

In 2014, the category of Best Church Film was added, designed to recognize the best 2-5 minute film specifically made for churches to use during their services and ministry efforts.
