Lifestyle Magazine, the flagship program for Faith For Today, has won the Gold and Silver awards at the 2013 WorldFest-Houston International Film Festival. WorldFest is one of the oldest and largest film festivals in the United States. Secular and religious film and television producers from around the globe compete with their best programs at this prestigious festival. Entries come from Discovery Channel, PBS, National Geographic Channel, and more.

In 2012, Lifestyle Magazine won the top two awards in their division, taking both the Platinum and Gold awards. This year they won the Gold and Silver awards. The Silver award was a Lifestyle Magazine presents Mad About Marriage show, as hosts Mike & Gayle Tucker interviewed authors and marriage counselors Myron and Kay Yerkovich about their book, How We Love. The Gold award was won with an interview of Country Music Star Gretchen Wilson. Gretchen is a spokesperson for adult literacy.

To gain perspective on the type of programs in this competition, there were more than 230 entries in this category. The Bronze award went to a PBS special on the life of singer John Denver, while the Platinum went to a special on the life of pop singer Whitney Houston.



 
Faith For Today Speaker/Director, Mike Tucker, says, “We enter our programs at WorldFest in order to insure that our production is of the very highest quality. Since our target audience is a more secular audience, our programs have to be the best. The awards we win tell us that we are producing programs that are actually reaching our target audience.”
