The Pangaea Award
Established in 2019, The Pangaea Award par Legacy Excellence is a symbol that art creates what policy cannot, a new vision forward. Through the performing arts, social media, and the humanities, many humanitarians have surfaced utilizing their craft, celebrity iconic success, and esteemed industrious status to exact change in the world. The works of these iconic luminary figures breakdown the borders that separate us. The success of the award recipients is metaphorically shifting our landmasses back together–bridging our world back to its original super community form, Pangaea.
We are facing a global emergency. We must work together to secure future living conditions for humankind and our future.

The Story | Past, Present & Future
Once upon a time, about 250 million years ago, all of Earth’s continents were apart of one massive supercontinent called Pangaea, which was surrounded by a single ocean called Panthalassa. Pangaea was a supercontinent community and home to all things living free without borders. Pangaea rested on massive slabs of plate rocks that are always moving (even today) in a process called plate tectonics. One day, the plate tectonics started to shift causing Pangaea to break the supercontinent apart resulting in the separation of the super community to what we have today as our modern-day seven continents.
In acknowledgment of their Service to Humanity, on behalf of the Millennial, Gen Z, and Gen Alpha generations, we honor and celebrate the achievements and industrious efforts of meritorious iconic humanitarians that have progressively changed the face of our world with The Pangaea Award par Legacy Excellence in Film and Humanity.
We honor the work of these esteemed visionaries with an award designed to emulate the legacy they desire to leave behind in our world.
We honor those who have challenged the undefeatable odds to execute change where change seemed impossible. We celebrate those who are not swayed by the mighty powers preventing transformation to the needy. We exalt those who are relentless in volatile environments shifting change in the pursuit of life, equal access, inclusion, freedom, and liberty.
These are the high-esteemed mortal plate tectonic trailblazers of our modern era whose contributions have left a lasting legacy for generations to come. This is a modern award hosted byTILFA on behalf of the Millennial, Gen Z, Gen Alpha, and future generations.
The Pangaea Award is a merit-based accountability award. Despite age, race, status, or location, recipients of the first-of-its-kind humanitarian award work together to build bridges that can secure the future of humanity through joint actions to impact mass adoption. We are ready.
