The awards and annual festival is named for Philo T. Farnsworth, the father of modern television. Farnsworth was born Aug. 19, 1906, on a farm near Beaver City, Utah. As a youth in 1922, he first revealed his scientific ideas for an all-electric television system. He later established an electronics laboratory in Fort Wayne, Indiana, where he succeeded in turning his dreams into reality by inventing the first receiving tube for television transmissions.
