Event to feature 'Green Carpet'
The International Press Academy (IPA) is jumping aboard the eco-friendly bandwagon this year with its 12th Annual Satellite Awards, replacing the red carpet with a green one.Awards, to be held Sunday, Dec. 16, will feature the “Green Carpet” theme as a starting point from which to launch a celebration of all things environmentally conscious. “Environmental issues touch every aspect of filmed entertainment – from production to marketing to distribution – and our member journalists who cover the industry acknowledge this in their own work covering trends in the industry,” said Mirjana Van Blaricom, IPA president. “For the show this year, we at the IPA wish to underscore and celebrate environmentally motivated changes and improvements already made within the entertainment community by literally going ‘green’ with our VIP arrivals.”
