Jan Creamer, defender of animals rights, will be awarded by The Women’s International Film & Television Showcase Foundation for her commitment to her chosen field. 

She is the president of Animal Defenders International (ADI), an association she founded in 1990 with current vice-president Tim Phillips. Since then, ADI has acted in many campaigns, for example, animal abuse in laboratories, factory farms and circuses. 

At the award ceremony that will take place on December 10th in Los Angeles, Ms Cre amer will be handed The Otilia Animal Advocacy award. A short film will also be screened to present ADI and Ms Creamer’s commitment towards the recognition of animals’ rights. 

Jan Creamer said that being chosen for this award is “an honour”. Among the women recognized by WIFTS Foundation, we find Angela Merkel, actress Elaine Parnow and Mayes C. Rubeo, Costume Designer for Thor: Ragnarok. 

Raising awareness of animal abuse is a key element of ADI’s campaigns and for this reason, the association is involved in documentary production. The short film that will be shown at the ceremony, Operation Spirit of Freedomwill present ADI’s latest rescue mission.

Ms Creamer said: “Humanity can be a force for good, protecting our planet and the other species who call it home.” Through Operation Spirit of Freedom ADI managed to liberate more than 100 animals that were being exploited in circuses and illegal trade. 

ADI’s campaigns pushed for bans on cosmetic testing on animals in the UK and Europe. It also helped to enforce restrictions on cross-border movements of endangered species in over 180 countries. 

Successful partnerships with the governments of Peru and Bolivia resulted in the rescue of wild animals such as lions, bears and monkeys. These animals have been re-introduced in their natural habitats or homed in ADI sanctuary facilities in the Amazon. 

Jan Creamer has been nominated by the Albert Einstein Foundation to be part of Genius: 100 Visions of the Future. The book, which will be 3D-printed,  will feature the “world’s greatest minds”as Nobel laureates, entrepreneurs and spiritual leaders. 

Ms Creamer and Mr Phillip’s work is also recognized by TV presenter and philanthropist Bob Barker, funder of the association. He said: “, "I am proud to be on ADI's list of donors! In my opinion, Animal Defenders International is one of the world's most productive animal protection organizations.”
