The CAMIE Awards, sometimes known as the CAMIEs, are awards for outstanding, uplifting films emphasizing character and morality. They are awarded annually by CAMIE Awards, Inc.[1]


CAMIE is an acronym for "Character And Morality In Entertainment". The CAMIE awards are given to films which emphasize character and morality. They were established to "encourage the production and awareness of outstanding, uplifting, and entertaining motion pictures with positive role models for building character, overcoming adversity, correcting unwise choices, strengthening families, living moral lives, and solving life’s problems with integrity and perseverance."[2]In the annual awards show, rather than giving "best actor" or "best film" awards, the CAMIEs give each film 10 statues to be divided among people who contributed at all levels of production.[3][4] including both actors and film-makers. In addition to the film awards, special awards are also sometimes given; Richard Dutcher received one such award at the 2001 ceremony.[5]
