Iron Stream Media received two 2020 CAN Crown Awards

Iron Stream Media is proud to announce two winners of the 2020 Christian Authors Network (CAN) Crown Awards. Laine Lawson Craft won Silver for Enjoy Today, Own Tomorrow in the Outstanding Visual Media Campaign category. Dr. Craig von Buseck won Bronze for I Am Cyrus in the Outstanding Broadcasting Campaign category.

The CAN Crown Awards recognize excellence in marketing and promotion of Christian authors. Each year CAN recognizes authors who have done an exemplary job promoting their books in one of three categories:

  • Visual campaign, including social media and print materials
  • Broadcasting, including radio, podcasts, and television
  • Web Presence, including website, blog, and newsletters

The awards provide outstanding examples to fellow Christian authors, in order to educate and develop marketing and promotion skills.
