City of Los Angeles Certificate of Recognition, 2006

We very much appreciate the effort and the recognition.

Haunted Media Magazine Excellence Award, 2005

The Hallowed Haunting Grounds was featured in the inaugural issue of Haunted Media DVD Magazine as it is now called. We were honored then, and later, when the publisher of Haunted Media Magazine saw fit to present to us their "Excellence Award." We highly recommend visiting their web site and ordering their fine product.

Haunt Complilation Video, 2004

Each year a group of Halloween enthusiasts from all over North America submit pictures from their Halloween displays for inclusion in a video complilation. For the first time, in 2004, a video of the Hallowed Haunting Grounds was submitted. Of course, any collection invites comparison. These haunts were judged and awards given recognizing efforts worthy of special attention.

The haunts were divided into categories:

  • Pro and Charity Haunts (admission charged,)
  • Indoor or Home Haunts (indoors or with actors,)
  • Party Haunts (usually involving adult beverages,)
  • Yard Haunts (outdoors with no actors,)
  • First Time Haunts (to encourage new haunters.)

Death Lord Awards, 2004

On February 20, 2005 the first of these awards were presented. The "Death Lord Award," also known as the "Golden Bucky," (later called the Haunt X Award,) was presented at a convention called "Death Fest IX." These awards were created by Mr. Wil Schock and are voted by the awards' sponsors.
