Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 13, 2013
For the first time, the PRISM Showcase is interactive with exclusive content available on EICnetwork.tv, after the September 14th premiere on flagship airing partner FX. Additionally, EICtv viewers can share their stories for a chance to be featured online and in the national television broadcast in 2014. The PRISM Showcase is a TV special celebrating the winners of this year’s PRISM Awards. Both the ceremony and TV special are produced by the Entertainment Industries Council, Inc. (EIC).
The 17th Annual PRISM Awards honor actors, writers, producers and entertainment programming addressing substance use and mental health issues in ways that inform vast audiences and encourage help-seeking behaviors. EIC is also offering web-exclusive content for viewers and an opportunity to participate the 2014 PRISM Showcase through the “That’s My Story” contest on EICnetwork.tv and PRISMawards.com.
“Powerful stories about mental health not only raise public awareness, but may also encourage people to recognize and address these issues in their personal lives. PRISM Awards aggregate these topics from media and spotlight the impact our industry has to create positive change in people’s lives,” said Dr. Drew Pinsky, TV host and longtime PRISM Awards supporter and 5-time honoree.
“That's My Story" offers viewers the opportunity to share with the world how they or someone they know has traveled the path of recovery and triumphed over the stigma often associated with substance use and mental health issues. Stories must be shared in an UNLISTED YouTube link emailed to eictv(at)eiconline(dot)org and, if chosen, submissions could appear on EICnetwork.tv and/or in the 18th Annual PRISM Showcase TV special premiering
