The Torrance Community Television Awards, better known as "The Stanleys" were developed to encourage quality community programming, and to publicly recognize the tireless efforts and positive contributions of Torrance producers and volunteers.  To that end, this year's 18th Annual Torrance Community Television Video Awards presentation is designed to showcase the achievements of our many talented TCtv Producers & Users who have helped to create this important body of electronic consciousness in 2009.  The Awards are both a celebration of work well done and a reinforcement of positive community participation in each category.

The Stanley Awards were named in honor of the late Stanley E. Remelmeyer, Torrance's former City Attorney who was instrumental in the development of cable television in the City.  Through the awards ceremony, the City encourages quality programming by the community and introduces the public to the purpose and benefits of public access television.  The City of Torrance has provided public access to its residence since 1987.

At 18 years old, the Awards show is aging to perfection with some of the highest quality shows yet.  On behalf of the Mayor and City Council, the Cable Television Advisory Board, and staff, congratulations to all of the competitors for 2009 Stanleys!
