Imagination Videobooks has won the 2022 Gold Davey Award for Creativity in Diversity, Equity and Inclusion for our podcast Illustrated Audiobooks with the Audiobook Wizard.

Special congrats to our Podcast Producer Heather Sackrison, our Audio Describer Bonnie Barlow, and our Executive Producer Chris Snyder!

The Davey Awards exclusively honor the “Davids” of creativity, the finest small shops, firms, agencies, and companies worldwide. David defeated the giant Goliath with a big idea and a little rock. The annual International Davey Awards honors the achievements of the “Creative Davids”, who derive their strength from big ideas rather than big budgets. 

Thank you for your support in making Winnie-the-Pooh accessible.
