Three other productions have also won Videographer Awards, one a satiric spoof of the wedding industry, which received an Award of Distinction, the second a production supporting the national new-product roll-out of Garden Botanika,. VideOccasions shot and edited the Garden Botanika video, working closely with the creative staff of Garden Botanika to develop story as well. This video was distributed to more than 100 Garden Botanika stores as a means of introducing the new product line and of training sales staff in techniques of marketing the new products.
Most recently VideOccasions has received a 2014 Videographer Award of Distinction for it's video production for MaternaLIFT, whose web and YouTube presence provides an excellent example of how video production can enhance and support on-line marketing.
VideOccasions received an Artistic Achievement Award at the 2007 4EVER Group's national conference in Jacksonville, Florida, for it's production of "OKIDOK2," the theatre performance of Belgium's clown duo who appeared as part of the Seattle International Children's Festival in May 2006.
Locally, VideOccasions founder Judy Wolcott received an award in the first annual Professional Event Videographer's Association Northwest (PEVAN) editing competition. Working with footage provided by then Association Chair Edd Smith (Smilson Productions), Judy created a charming fairy tale of two children "trapped" in the world of wedding giants.

|"I want to thank you for the wonderful tape that you made with my parents. You did a great job of interviewing them and getting them to talk about their lives. I found out a great deal about them that I didn't know and it was interesting to hear them talk about their family life when they were younger.
The editing is terrific and the pictures definitely support
what they are discussing. I am not sure where you got all the pictures, but they are excellent. You are obviously quite professional at putting together tapes. The tape is a real treasure for out family and something we can enjoy for many years."
"Just wanted to tell you what a great job you did - I love the photo with my sis as a little tyke on the rocking horse and it looks like its rocking. Nice touch. And you got [the music for the piece] to end with the words "feel eternity." Many thanks! Diane B., Seattle

"Not sure if you remember me but you recently copied some VHS dance recital tapes for me and one PAL tape from England onto DVD. . . I want to thank you for editing out the black parts of the dance recitals. Your receipt included a check because after taking out the black parts, you were able to get it on fewer DVD's. I will not be cashing your check. Let's call that your editing fee. I appreciate your help and your honesty. Thanks again for you work." M.A.M., Connecticut
