A Willing Participant, Inc. is very happy to announce the receipt of a Platinum 2019 Hermes Creative Award for the production of a mini-documentary for the nonprofit organization Accelerate Institute.

The Platinum award—the highest possible honor from the Hermes Awards—was received for our production of "Achieving More: The Accelerate Institute Story," which debuted at Accelerate Institute's Impact Dinner event last October.

Chicago-based Accelerate Institute was created to help close the achievement gap in America's urban schools. During its annual Impact Dinner, the organization presents the prestigious Ryan Award to two school leaders who are best fulfilling its mission.
