About Media Access Awards

As the largest minority group on the planet—and as the only minority group that anyone can join at any point of his or her life—the disability community is a robust, diverse, and integral part of our global fabric. The Media Access Awards celebrate this fact by honoring, highlighting, and promoting disability and its depictions in film, television, and new media.

The Media Access Awards aim to recognize depictions of disability that are accurate, inclusive, and multi-faceted. Our press breakfast and awards ceremony honor those industry professionals who have advanced disability-related narrative in fields including writing, producing, casting, performance, and directing. We are proud and pleased to be at the forefront of creating and promoting opportunities for some of the brightest talents in the industry.

Going forward, in a new partnership with Easterseals, the oldest and largest organization in America serving the needs of individuals with disabilities, Deborah and Allen will have the support and resources to build the Media Access Awards into a powerful and influential institution for years to come.
