2011 – 15th Annual PRISM Awards

The Entertainment Industries Council, Inc. (EIC) annually presents the PRISM Awards, in collaboration with the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), FX Network, and News Corporation, for outstanding accomplishments in the accurate depiction of substance abuse and mental health disorders: prevention, treatment and recovery, in film, television, interactive, comic book, music, and DVD entertainment.

Starting with the PRISM Awards presentation in Beverly Hills, CA. Then moving to our nation’s Capitol for the preview of the PRISM Awards television special. Then finally reaching the public through a national simulcast airing. The PRISM Awards shine a light on how these issues are portrayed in the popular culture.

This year the Entertainment Industry Council invited American Soldier Network Founder Annie Nelson and Advisory Board member Actor Kevin Sorbo to open and present the first award of the telecast in Beverly Hills, CA. “The Prism Awards are such a wonderful way to acknowledge the amazing work and to salute those telling the powerful stories we are all impacted by. It was a humbling honor to be invited to participate in this years show. Raising awareness for our veterans is what the American Soldier Network is all about, being a part of this awards show is helping us to fulfill our mission.” Annie Nelson
