Expanding possibilities for people with vision loss

Access Awards

The American Foundation for the Blind's Access Awards honor individuals, corporations, and organizations that are eliminating or substantially reducing inequities faced by people who are blind or visually impaired.

Nominations for the AFB Access Awards should illustrate an exceptional and innovative effort that has improved the lives of people with vision loss by enhancing access to information, arts/leisure, the environment, technology, education, or employment, including making mainstream products and services accessible. The effort should be one that has a national or international impact or can be a model for replication on a national or international level. Past award winners include the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Major League Baseball, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, Apple, and Leader Dogs for the Blind.

The awards are presented annually at the AFB Leadership Conference.
