The association's Special Awards of Recognition will be presented on Monday night, August 21st at the WEVA 16th Annual Wedding & Event Video Expo at spectacular Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas as part of the WEVA EXPO 2006 Opening Night Premiere events.

Any WEVA International member may nominate another for the Walter Bennett Service to Industry Award, the Bob LeBar Vision Award, the WEVA 911 Community Service Award, and may nominate WEVA members for induction into the WEVA International Wedding & Event Videography Hall of Fame.

The WEVA Wedding & Event Videography Hall of Fame opened in August 2000 at the WEVA 10th Annual Wedding & Event Video Expo with the unveiling of the Hall's historical "Tools and Technology" exhibit. This special industry preservation exhibit displayed professional video recording equipment dating back to the very beginning of professional wedding and event videography, and included industry memorabilia from videographers commemorating the history of our profession.

The following year, At WEVA EXPO 2001, WEVA International conducted the first Hall of Fame induction of videographers whose contributions to the professional wedding and event video industry nurtured its growth.

The Walter Bennett Service to Industry Award, named in memory of the pioneering videographer and local association founder from Tulsa, OK, was introduced in 1999. This Special Award honors the WEVA International member who, through donation of time, through service to fellow videographers by teaching or writing, by service in a local association or on a national level, strives for exemplary professionalism that lights a pathway for other videographers to follow.

The Bob LeBar Vision Award, introduced in 2000, is named in honor of the groundbreaking video animator from Hartsdale, NY. The award recognizes the WEVA International member who has made innovative contributions to the development of the professional wedding and event video community by advancing unique ideas, and invoking a keen sense of entrepreneurial spirit, together with a strong sense of professional pride, raising the "bar" to new heights.

The WEVA 911 Community Service Award, established in 2003 to remember the sacrifices on September 11, 2001, and in recognition that 911 is a universal call for help. The award is an acknowledgment of an exemplary response by a WEVA International member in using their professional skills as a wedding and event videographer to be part of a solution or resolution to a particular community situation.
