deadCenter Film was selected as the best Arts and Humanities nonprofit in Oklahoma at the Oklahoma Nonprofit Excellence (ONE) Awards, annually presented by the Oklahoma Center for Nonprofits. The award, sponsored by The Chickasaw Nation, included a $7,500 cash prize.

“We are both proud and humbled to be recognized as the top nonprofit in the Arts and Humanities category out of the 19,000 nonprofits doing business in Oklahoma,” exclaimed Lance McDaniel, Executive Director.

All of the finalists in 8 different categories received $5,000 and category winners received $7,500. In total, organizations received $150,000 to recognize the impact of their charitable work throughout the state. Since 2008, the Oklahoma Center for Nonprofits has given $1.5 million dollars to more than 150 Oklahoma nonprofits thanks to the ONE Awards.
