Ashland, Oregon May 15, 2019 Massif® Films, with Jared Cruce Studio, have won both a Gold and Silver Stevie® Award in the Business Documentary and Corporate Social Responsibility categories in the 17th Annual American Business Awards® for 2019.

The American Business Awards (ABA) are the U.S.A.'s premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the U.S.A. are eligible to submit nominations public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small.

More than 3,800 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories, including Startup of the Year, Executive of the Year, Best New Product or Service of the Year, Marketing Campaign of the Year, Live Event of the Year, and App of the Year, among others. This year, ABA nominated Massif Films and Jared Cruce Studio in two separate video categories for their film, A Journey Home, which profiles four amazing National Industries for the Blind (NIB) individuals, who after losing their eyesight, receive life-changing training and job placement under NIB.

Massif Films and Jared Cruce Studio selected two NIB agencies, IFB Solutions and San Antonio Lighthouse for the Blind, to film A Journey Home. Four inspirational individuals share their journey of blindness and how they turned despair into happiness in a powerful way. "Our idea for the film was to highlight the incredible work that National Industries for the Blind does daily through their 100 plus nonprofit agencies. We are delighted this film is garnering national recognition and bringing attention to the NIB organization and its incredible agencies and individuals who are challenged daily in ways most of us never consider. Jared Cruce Studio exceeded our expectations and delivered another outstanding film," said Mike Walters, Marketing Communications Manager at Massif.

More than 200 professionals worldwide took part in the judging process to select this year's Stevie Award winners. "The nominations submitted to The 2019 American Business Awards were outstanding. They illustrate the continued vibrancy of innovation and high-level of achievement across the American economic landscape," said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards.
