Winged Lion AwardsFrom monetary reformer Tom J. Kennedy’s site:

The Winged Lion Awards are in honour of the ‘Winged Lion’ – which is the historical symbol of usuryfree money. The Winged Lion Awards are presented to the winners from the nominated usuryfree creatives on behalf of the UsuryFree Network during the Annual UsuryFree Week scheduled from November 13th, until November 19th, each year.

Nominations are commonly accepted from local, national and international usuryfree creatives.

The winners of the Winged Lion Awards are honoured at a special event each year during the celebration of UsuryFree Week.

Nominations are currently open for the following 15 categories – ideas for additional categories are welcomed:

Here are the top three categories. See the announcement for the other 12 categories.

1. A community that has launched new paper notes of usuryfree community currency during the current year. This community must have done something unique for their launch of paper notes of usuryfree community currency. Samples of the paper notes and details of this unique activity must be submitted with the nomination.

2. An individual usuryfree creative who has authored a unique article about the design flaw of usury during the current year. A copy of the article must be submitted with the nomination.

3. An individual usuryfree creative who has authored a unique article about the usuryfree community currency movement during the current year. A copy of the article must be submitted with the nomination.

My nominee for the 2013 Winged Lion Awards is George Whitehurst-Berry, and he had the show Crash! Are You Ready? on the largest alternative network, GCN, from 2007 until 2012, and he’s now broadcasting on the same network as I am, with the shows the Financial News Network and Sedona Dreams.

He had the second highest online listenership of nearly 40 shows on the network, starting in 2008, and he was the one who inspired Wayne Walton into his activism, from listening to his shows about successful government-issued currencies and how the banksters intentionally sabotaged them, reading from books he collected that were written in the 1800s and early 1900s, that couldn’t easily be found at the time.

He also brought to light the little known fact about the Bank of Venice, whose paper documents always circulated at at least a 20% premium above gold, and even went up to 40% above gold, until they were regulated to be less than that value. It also never had any major panics, and contrary to G. Edward Griffin’s false claim about it failing, it only terminated due to an external invasion by Napoleon.

He also gave me the chance to appear as a guest several times, and guest host many times, and provided me with my first radio appearance ever, back on October 1, 2008.

The Winged Lion Awards will be awarded during this year’s 9th annual UsuryFree week from November 13 to 18.
