Award recognizes work with pressing social problems
OTTAWA, CANADA, November 30, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ —
Chocolate Moose Media (CMM) has been named Best Social Change Media Production Company for 2019 by CV Magazine’s Canadian Business Awards. The company also earned two independent awards for its most-recent animated public service announcement “Whispers With Stones.”
The Canadian business award reveals the impact founder Firdaus Kharas has made not only in Canada but in humanitarian efforts around the world, including work with rape stigmatization and Ebola. It is the fourth time his body of work has been recognized by granting agencies.
“Whispers With Stones,” a short video dealing with a young girl’s reaction when her father is accused of sexual assault at work, was given an Award of Merit Special Mention by the Accolade Global Film Competition and an Award of Merit by Infiefest. It is in nine language versions and was co-produced by The General Commission on the Status and Role of Women of The United Methodist Church. The musical score was created by Ottawa’s Andrew Huggett.
“I am honoured by these annoucements. I am also very happy because of the increasing attention humanitarians are getting around the world as they work for progressive social change,” Kharas says.
