‘Derek Acorah Annual Mediumship Award’
Unprecedented Interest – After Barrie John’s announcement of the ‘Derek Acorah Annual Mediumship Award, ’ we are pleased to be inundated with questions about how the award will work. This article should clarify the way the prize will work.
Barrie and Gwen Acorah feel the award should be for the benefit for up and coming mediums. Nationally recognised mediums or those who already benefit from large stage audiences are not the focus of attention.
The award is without doubt, prestigious. After all, Derek was an internationally recognised medium. Therefore, whoever wins the prize will have to attain a very high standard, indeed. Anyone who is nominated will have to evidence their ability. So there has to be a sequence of proposals before the last evening where the finalists are judged.
During February we will open an award page. On the page, there will be a nomination contact area. Visitors to the page will be able to nominate mediums. The nomination must include a synopsis about their nominee. Providing information is an essential step, as the information provided will be used to select the fifty people who will go forward to the first live assessments.
We will hold five countrywide mediumistic evenings. At each event, ten selected mediums will take the stage for fifteen minutes. The audience will vote on the performances. The five winners will go forward to a grand final where a panel of judges will decide who will become the first winner of the ‘Derek Acorah Annual Mediumship Award’.
The information provides the basic idea of how the award system will work. There will be additional aspects to the administration of the award. However, Visitors now have an idea of how the award will work.
The award will allow the winner to evidence they have attained the highest mediumistic standard and they are sure to benefit for many years after being awarded the accolade. There is no doubting the award will become a yardstick of attainment.
Another aspect of the award is finalists will have their place on the Pure Spirit Events page. This means visitors to the site can contact them for the following year as well as having priority places if they wish to stand at any Pure Spirit Show.
